Interesting rally cry to ".. stop the attack on public service workers.", and I mean no disrespect, but it's a bunch of bull. Addressing the budget crisis is not an attack.

We all want good paying family wage jobs. My 401k dropped over 30%, which my spouse and I are working to regain. It's unfair to also expect that we pay increased taxes so that people with government jobs don't have to take a loss.

I started my career in a union job as a young adult, and left after I came to the painful conclusion that the socialistic culture was diametrically opposed to the basic economics which have been overall very good for our country.

This overt Us v. Them is so last century, and counterproductive.
