WEEKEND QUOTABLES

An assault on unions...
"Some of what I've heard coming out of Wisconsin where you're just making it harder for public employees to collectively bargain generally; seems like more of an assault more on unions. And I think it's very important for us to understand that public employees, they are our neighbors, they are our friends." -- Barack Obama to Milwaukee T.V. station
Critical thinker
"You say that education is the way out of poverty right?" 16-year-old Yamilet Miranda asked Duncan from the crowd. "So then why is education always the main target during budget cuts?" -- Southern California Pacific Radio (Audio)
Ezra Klein:

"Don't blame the union" for budget crisis. -- WaPo
Fred Klonsky:
"How did a crisis created by Wall Street, with huge profits still being made by Wall Street, ever get framed as being the fault of a kindergarten teacher, a nurse or a fireman?" -- Solidarity Forever!
