Police and firefighters are next!!! We got 'em GOOD in Deetroit! We cut their pay and made them pay for health insurance!!! Sould be the model for the country!!!
There are firefighters in Vermont who've had their salary cut to minimum wage. I wonder how people would feel if they pulled up to a raging house fire, threw a bucket of water on it and drove away. That's minimum wage firefighting. I daresay all the elected officials are still earning THEIR full salaries.

Been that way since day one. Let's see how fast 'ol Mitt the Twitt can solve unemployment in America. Bet that'll be the last thing on his mind when he gets elected. He'll be too busy destroying Medicare and Social Security.
Yeah,'cause they're govt/union "jobs", paid for by borrowing from China

It is the same music every August about teachers. We need money to keep from laying off teachers and it is for the children. Teachers are making a good living while lots of people out there are unemployed and poor. How about them taking a little load of the grief in this country. Make the counselors teach.

That's nothing. In Detroit, the police got a big salary cut. They have to pay for health insurance, risk their lives, AND had their shifts increased to 12 hours a day!!!! As goes Detroit, so goes the nation..... LOL We'll break you UNION MEMBERS yet!!!!

It doesn't matter if fewer teacher dues means less contributions to the DNC. I am certain his interest is honorable and not self serving.

Unionized groups like teachers, construction workers and US postal workers thought Obama would protect them! Union bosses need to smell the coffee. There are no union dues paid in to support your Hoffa salaries without businesses staying in the black and providing JOBS! Kiss your salaries good bye because Obama has and will CONTINUE TO ROB THE KITTY FOR HIS CRONIES.

Get a hint, unions! YOU'LL GO THE WAY OF US POSTAL WORKERS AND TEACHERS! Buh-bye, jobs. So much for Obama. He has what is called the reverse midas touch. The wells are running dry with him.

And while we're on the topic, sorry but businesses built those roads and infrastructure. Without their business profits and innovative technology built by private investments, the government could not build a raft up a river.

YOU DIDN'T BUILD ANYTHING EITHER OBAMA.
