better monologues. do you remember what you said? >> greg: absolutely not. i wrote it this morning in a haze. >> bob: do you know what the segment is about? >> greg: i do. i want to ask andrea this. sarah talked about a women, mother and entrepreneur, she needs the country to be a place where everyone has a fair shot. didn't her success start under ronald reagan in the '80s with square pegs? under reagan and bush? and "sex in the city" came in bush. >> andrea: that is true. actually very true. >> greg: i don't know why i know that. >> bob: why does it matter? >> andrea: her character, her character in "sex in the city" is the character they want all of the young girls watching the awards to identify with. this was a character, kerry bradshaw not real, never took a government check. she wasn't on subsidy. no julia. this is for dual purposes. youth vote. the woman vote. they are having big trouble with the woman's vote. you know what the kerry campaign did this exact thing in 2004. they rolled out sarah jessica

68,000 to 28,000. 54% drop in union numbers so they can renegotiate contract and save the state money. >> bob: 33,000 jobs were created under the governor out there. whenever other state has had more than that. the reason that unemployment is down, they have triggers thanks to bob in the 1920s. it allowed the wisconsin people out of work for a certain period of time to employ by the state. >> andrea: but because of walker's leadership, union roles are down. one thing he did is give wisconsin voters a choice. do you want to join a union or don't you? they chose not to join the union. that is absolutely true. >> bob: stripped them of collective bargaining. >> kimberly: they want the money. >> andrea: all he asked them to do is pay 12% of the health insurance premium and put up
5.8% of the paycheck for the pension. that is so far down from private employers are asking employees to do. it's so fair. unemployment is down. he may come out of here a winner. the lesson is can you cross the unions? >> bob: he will probably win the race regrettably because of the right wing republican money pouring in. >> kimberly: how are you feeling? better. great. lay it on us. >> greg: the big lesson here is if walker wins the private person doesn't have the luxury to campaign politically for their survival every day. a private person goes to work and doesn't think about politics. when you're in the union, your survival is paramount. you're a gold medal fighter fighting for your own survival. that person lose against a private individual, a huge story. a big deal. >> eric: you say he is probably going to win the race. this is not a race.
this is a recall. let's recall governor walker and they'll lose miserably. while they do lose miserably, it will send signal to other democrats out there. >> bob: let me get serious here for a second about the governor friend of yours. the guy stripped people of the rights, constitutional rights to balance collectively against their employers. are you proud of that? the union. only #% of the country is union. the fact is every state -- >> greg: public unions having collective bargaining. >> bob: the point is someone signed a contract. it ought to be binding. he is broke. and -- >> eric: wisconsin is broke? holy cow! >> kimberly: can we -- >> bob: i'm not happy because this guy is a union buster. >> andrea: contract is down unless they try to bump up

teachers, no anything. they can pay the teachers based on merit. merit pay. >> kimberly: we talk about the evolution. >> greg: schools talk about the evolution. the labor union involved. the write tong wall -- >> eric: writing on wall is this 306789 years ago unions represented 22% of the country. now down to 11.5%. unions are a dinosaur, dying beast. let them go away. >> bob: then what are you worried about it for? >> andrea: they're bankrupting us. >> bob: they're bankrupting us? george bush tax cuts didn't bankrupt us. >> kimberly: something positive. they did do a lot in tomorrows of organizing the workforce and getting benefits for employees but there comes a time when the pendulum swings and we need to focus on fiscal responsen't and putting money in hands of the hardworking people. >> bob: then let bush tax cuts expire.
