    The Really Important Wisconsin Vote Is Not Today

    The Really Important Wisconsin Vote Is Not Today

    There will be a vote in Wisconsin which will shake the political landscape of the nation.

    That vote is not today in the Wisconsin Assembly on the bill passed last night in the Senate restricting public employee union collective bargaining.

    That vote will not be in April, when there are local elections in Wisconsin.

    That vote will not be sometime in the next few months as a result of various recall petitions.

    The vote which will shake our political landscape will not be on a single day, and will not be televised.

    The vote will not even be on a ballot.

    The vote will be taken with the feet of tens of thousands of Wisconsin public employee union members, who will have the choice for the first time in memory of deciding whether to join the union and pay the union dues, which have been estimated in the $700-1000 per year range.

    The public employees will have to make a choice, take a pay increase or pay the union.

    I think we know how that vote will turn out, and whether the employees — once given a choice — will buy what the unions are selling.

    Off topic, sorry, but James O'Keefe said about an hour ago (about 1:15 ET), on Facebook, "New explosive tape released in a matter of hours."

    This is one vote I'm not the least bit worried about.

    I'd bet union dues falls off at least 50% immediately, and to 90% over time.

    Remember, public unions get overly generous benefits, their pay isn't that far out of line with private sector workers. Unlike their leadership, the majority of them are neither idealogues nor swimming in union cash.

    Union contributions to Democrats will fall at an even faster rate. The last thing union leaders will cut is their own pay. The first thing to go will be optional expenses like contributions to politics.

    This is a huge step in turning Wisconsin into a prosperous state, free of socialist tyranny.

    Eleanor, if you are still required to "donate" to a union, you don't have true RTW laws.

    Texas is a true RTW state. You do not have to join a union, nor pay anything to the unions, in order to get a job. So is Mississippi.

    Agree completely. And, here's the clearly predictable result of Obama's and the outside paid agitators' continued reckless meddling.

    This is not what democracy looks like.

    This is so unfair. Public employees get to opt out of their union, but private sector unions have a closed shop. Private sector employees must join the union and pay dues. So unfair, Man!
