Not Union-Busting, But A Needed Correction

Public employee unions have become too powerful, and their relationship with the government needs to be righted. Nobody is trying to do away with public unions; rather, current Republican efforts in Wisconsin and Ohio are nothing more than attempts to restore some balance to the union-government-taxpayer equation:

The problem with collective bargaining by public employees is that these unions are unchecked by competition and wield massive influence as they help to elect their bosses. I get why Wisconsin public employees view Walker's proposal as an assault, but I see a sensible measure to rein in the tendency of pols to serve narrow interests at the expense of the commonweal.
