To put this in perspective, my last full time job paid nothing into my retirement, they merely set up a 401K program into which I could put my own pre-tax dollars. For health care (I found out when I went on COBRA) I paid 33% of the premiums. In other words, I would love to have the deal the folks are being offered in Madison.
One side thing, despite the Superbowl win by a Wisconsin team, I saw no Packers green being worn by protesters - but a lot of UW Badgers red. Losers.
Watching Ed Schultz last night rousing the rabble in front of the state house a la Glenn Beck, I was thoroughly disgusted. He's supposed to be covering and commenting on events, not making them.
