An excellent summary of the showdown in Wisconsin.
With the 2008 financial melt down and heavy losses in the stock market, these trends all worsened. And now it is a time of reckoning. Voters, who understandably believe that they and not union bosses, control state government elected representatives who promised to reorder the relationship between government and public employee unions. Elections have consequences and so does math. Pretending that public employee unions are the victims and not a major cause of states’ fiscal problems is not going to wash.
