Frank Keegan on How Fiscal Reality Won a Victory in Wisconsin

|


This week's Wisconsin recall election wasn't a struggle over collective-bargaining "rights," observes Frank Keegan.

And Tuesday's results have national implications: Fewer Americans working harder for less and paying more taxes to increasing numbers of government employees who get more is not a shared-sacrifice program that wins elections.
