I’m surprised the majority Republicans were willing to give up this much:

March 8th, 2011

In the latest offer by Walker aides put together on Sunday evening:

* The bill would no longer seek to limit public employee union bargaining over wages to the rate of inflation.

* The bill would allow union bargaining over certain economic issues, best cialis unhealthy including mandatory overtime, cialis performance bonuses, hazardous duty pay, and classroom size.

* The bill would allow bargaining over workplace safety.

* Union contracts for public employees would be limited to a one or two-year period.

* Unions would have to vote every three years to remain active and not every year.

* Employees of UW Hospital and Clinics Authority would not lose all union bargaining rights.

* The Legislature’s budget committee would explicitly have to approve changes to state health programs for the poor sought by the Walker administration. The budget repair bill gives Walker broad powers to reshape those Medicaid health programs.

I’m not surprised at all that the minority Democrats think they’re entitled to more.

    So much for the idea that Scott Walker has been dictating and not negotiating.

    At least we know the truth this morning. Walker does not know the meaning of, “Good faith.”

    LOFL. So grumps, running out of state to avoid your elected responsibilities is, “good faith”?
