Democratic governors were critical of how Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is handling the showdown with the public employees union in his state, but were ambiguous about whether they could support Walker’s proposal to allow voters to approve or disapprove by referendum any pay raise for public employees – including teachers – that exceeds the rate of inflation.

Why should the taxpayers have a say in what public sector union members make, it is not like they are paying their salaries or anything, Oh wait they actually are paying their salaries, perhaps then they should have a say in how much they think they should get paid.
