PBO can't even commit to what his own appointed bi-partisan committee has recommended.
Some Repub's likely will take a hit at the polls for doing what they view as "the right (as in correct) thing".
But I find it ironic that they are being labeled "cowards" for their actions in spite of that possibility.
Seems to me it more closely resembles the definition of "courage". Ie; the mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty

Talked to a friend of mine last night that lives in Twin Cities, MN and is married to a teacher. He worked in the printing industry as a manager for quite a few companies until he was let go due to downsizing. He recently accepted a job for a substantial cut in pay, probably in the neighborhood of 50%. His wife the teacher couldn't believe he would do that, take a cut in pay. I guess she screams bloody murder when the only get a 2% raise every year.
In reality, Gov. Walkers bill is more about breaking the mentality of the union workers then actually breaking the unions. People in the private sector are taking big hits on their wages, health care, contributing to their retirement, etc. and they complain about it. It is not uncommon for someone to finally get a raise of 3%, after two years of no raises, but it is more then offset by the increase in health insurance premium. Union workers, both public and private, suffer nothing like this. Their wages continue to go up, their health insurance is fully paid, their retirement is fully funded. Why does a union worker deserve a better scenario then a non-union worker? Simple answer: They Don't.
