Unions took it on the chin. They will not be turning back the reforms enacted by Walker that have already resulted in economic improvements in the state and why would they want to? Let me explain why Government employee unions want to…and want to bad.
First, I want to clear up some misinformation. Government employee unions no longer have collective bargaining rights, with the exception of police and firefighters….not private sector unions.
So what happens when government employee unions can engage in collective bargaining?
1. Unions pour money, sometimes millions of dollars, into the campaigns of favored politicians.
2. Unions then negotiate with the very politicians they managed to get elected with their money for increased pay and benefits.
3. Taxpayers foot the bill for the increased pay and benefits while the politicians pull down campaign donations from the unions that will help to keep them in office.
See the problem?
Some Barret supporters are apoplectic over Scott Walker’s win, others seem to have imploded.
Here are two of my favorite samples:
“This is the end of democracy! Democracy died tonight! The end of the USA as we know it, just happened!”
(Here’s a bit of advice, Put on your big girl panties and man up buddy. I hope your kids never see this.)
and it appears that the unions weren’t the only ones that took it on the chin as a perturbed Barrett (D. WI) supporter implodes and slaps Barrett believing he conceded too early while people were still voting. To be fair, I’d like to note that Scott Walker (R- WI) led Democrat Tom Barrett 53-to-46 percent, with Brookfield kidney specialist Hari Trivedi getting the other one-percent.
(Lady, you are the epitome of unbalanced, and no, I’m not surprised.)
Folks, I like to call it the “Chicken Little Syndrome”, because the sky is always falling…just ask any far left supporter.
