State Rep. Terry Boose (R-Norwalk Township) wouldn't change a thing about Saturday's town hall meeting regarding Senate Bill 5 at Main Street School in Norwalk.

Boose, who represents the 58th district, knew going in the potential was there for emotions to run high and they did. He also was aware he would received a good deal and grief and that part came true as well.

"I'm definitely leaning to support Senate Bill 5," Boose said. "There are a few things that might be cleaned up, but I expect to vote on it in the House either this week or next. That would be my guess."

I would like to comment on the comment by ThomasJefferson "Thank you Representative Boose for hosting the meeting. People should be ashamed of their behavior. It just re-enforces the "thug" reputation unions have. Can you say RUDE? This man is an elected official....elected by us...and representing us. He deserves our respect, and I have no respect for those who did'nt give it to him wether you happen to agree with what he is saying or not." Where were you when the GOP and TeaParty were acting like a mob during the health care reform hearings? I'm betting you didn't respect your elected President then. You are all hypocrites.

I don't even know Boose, but he is doing what everyone in November wanted our leaders to do. Balance the budget and stop raising taxes to fund things that we cannot afford. Talk about having your minds made up. Some of you on here are flat out walled off to the truth. Wages are not on the table, neither are health care and pension. They are not stripping away your rights. What they are doing is putting everyone on an even keel. Some of you keep saying Boose, Kasich...etc, are trying to do away with unions. Not even close to the truth. Have you even listened to Kasich talk on this bill? 99% on here have not and its pretty clear.
Just a side note, our country is in grave trouble. The White House Office of Management and Budget projects that in the current fiscal year (2011), mandatory spending alone will exceed all federal receipts. So even if we didn’t spend a single cent on discretionary programs, we still wouldn’t be able to balance our budget this year — let alone pay off any of the $14 trillion in debt that we have already accumulated.

The fat needs to be trimmed, people of all kinds are taking cuts, paying more and having to scale back. Remember this is what we all wanted in November. Its tough, but its our future. A question to all of those that spew out nothing but opinions on here who are in opposition to this bill. Would you rather renegotiate some key points in the public sector and not lose a job, or have a ton of layoffs? Thats the choice our leaders are facing.

Booses comments regarding putting wages in the public sector "more in sync" with the private sector sound dangerously communist in nature. This is ironic considering Booses conservative learnings.
Any time anyone uses "level the playing field" rhetoric, they run the risk of plummeting American society into the grip of communism/socialism.

I see the article written by the teacher was taken down. Censorship.

They hid it back with the commentaries, it's point of origin.

Hey Thomas Jefferson.....

"You think you gain respect with the public when you go there sounding like an angry demanding mob?" Isn't that what the Tea Party did????
