As a taxpayer, I personally agree with what the governor of Wisconsin wants to do. It is about time that the public sector went by the same rules as the private sector. Changes need to be made. Many of us in the private sector have already had to make the same concessions they are asking of these public employees. We can't keep providing benefits we can't afford. The demonstrators in Wisconsin make it look like everyone is on their side. They are wrong; most taxpayers think these changes need to be made.

The Democrats in Wisconsin walked out. . . huh?? Weren't they elected to do a job? They should stay and vote. Let their constituents see just where they stand.
