The worst generation’s war in Wisconsin.

In the past 10 years, says the Wisconsin Department of Employee Trust Funds, taxpayers paid more than $8 billion for state workers’ health care coverage, while the workers put in only $398 million. And from 2000 to 2009, according to the Legislative Fiscal Bureau, taxpayers spent about $12.6 billion on public employee pensions while the employees contributed only $8 million.

    Don’t really like being thought of as part of “The worst generation”, I’m sure other generations have been at least as bad, but this historical cycle reaching its special interest focus extreme – during a phase where the gov is socialist and happy to bribe voters with their own money – is a real historic low.
