Excellent article demolishing the media myths being relentlessly repeated. The best comment, though, came in one of the comment responses posted following the article:
The public unions, through their forced dues and political action to elect union-friendly democrats, effectively have a key to the taxpayer’s vault. They’ve been using that key from time to time to take out money when they want it. The vault is now empty as a result, and we need them to give a little bit back, but more importantly, we need to key back. They’re perfectly willing to give back a little bit of the money, but they insist on keeping the key.
Get the key, change the lock, or it isn’t a solution.
Couldn’t have said it better myself!
