I'm liberal about a lot of things, but the whole unionized public employment thing is really killing a lot of states fiscally. Something has to give. Here in New York, we have a Democratic Governor pushing cuts on the school system while the teachers are going beserk. So many silly programs to try and get kids to score only a few points higher on standardized tests. The MTA in NYC has risen the fare to buses and trains to 2.50, up 25 cents from last year, and you get on the subway and see MTA employees standing around doing nothing but earning 30 dollar/hour+benefit wages. Its a bit maddening that is being labelled as a tea party issue, since its obvious a lot of these unions need to start from square one, wherever that is.
