What are your thoughts on the Wisconsin Union Concessions?

What are your thoughts on the Wisconsin Union Concessions? Republicans across this country have an agenda, they want to eliminate unions and bargaining power for teachers, firefighters, police officers, labor groups, to do away with the middle class, the working back bone of this country, giving tax cuts to big businesses. If you think this is only happening in Wisconsin, you are wrong. It is happening in Texas, Ohio, Michigan, Iowa, New Hampshire and other states. Our democracy is being taken away by gritty Republicans who are all about money and power. If we are not careful, these United States will not be for the people, by the people but for big businesses, the rich and wealthy.

I think the concessions of the workers were inevitable. USA public policy is currently as in the past, formally in favor of private profit over public interest.
