If reform is not implemented for unions around the nation, then bankruptcy will occur. America cannot afford to maintain the status quo while government pensions drag state budgets further into the red.
This week's victory by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker in which he fought back an effort to recall him proved only one thing: union supporters made a terrible tactical mistake. They went after the man instead of the message.
The defeat of the effort to recall Scott Walker from his post as governor of Wisconsin is less of a victory for the Republican Party, or even a defeat for the Democratic Party, as it is a defeat for the labor movement.
Many are wondering if making Wisconsin a "Right to Work" state is next on Governor Scott Walker's agenda if he wins the recall election on June 5. Right to Work laws weaken unions by allowing members to opt out of paying dues.
