Another point I wish I'd made...

...about "Healthy Wisconsin," the Democrats' socialized health care "plan." This one from Jo Egelhoff, up at

...cost savings for municipal employees, as claimed by Healthy Wisconsin proponents are for now, illusory, as most unions will demand supplemental policies and/or an equivalent quid pro quo. Also, the Alliance for Cities suggests that most municipal employees, paying premium contributions of 4.5% of their salary as called for by HW, would be paying more than they’re currently paying. Do you think Local 284 would stand for that?
