Wisconsin Battle Transcends Unions

The protests in Wisconsin remind us of issues that transcend unions, pensions and budgets.  It is the often neglected principles of the rule of law and fairness.  As former AFL-CIO president George Meany noted, “It is impossible to bargain collectively with government.”

School Choice: Senate Bill 1

School choice is a movement that many can get behind. After all, where’s the downside? Your tax dollars follow your student, schools are rewarded (or punished) based on their performance, and the entire system is held accountable for its performance. Senate Bill 1, an upcoming bipartisan bill in Pennsylvania, is a step in the right direction for the great state. Nonetheless, it faces opposition, not only from the teacher’s unions and the politicians in their pocket, but also from supporters of school choice, on the grounds that the bill does not go far enough.

The Opposition to School Choice

It is difficult to see where the objection to school choice lies. After all, isn’t it common sense that your taxes should pay for your child’s education, regardless of which school they attend? Why should failing schools be supported by your money? Consistently poor performance at a regular job results in termination. Why should the education system be any different?

Wisconsin Defenders of Status Quo Out of Touch with Reality

It was inevitable that attempts to trim government at the state-level as well as the federal level would offend some sensibilities.  What was not inevitable was that the offended parties would do such a poor job making their case.  In a recent op-ed in The Washington Post, Harold Meyerson resorted to hyperbole, comparing Wisconsin’s new governor, Scott Walker, to Hosni Mubarak and writing: The real goal of the American right is to reduce public employee

Double Down on Spending

After 3 years of prodigious deficits, gratuitous spending and a midterm election shellacking, the American people expected a semblance of fiscal discipline.  President Obama, with his new found political capital, was boldly going to drop his iron hand and finally “go line by line” through the federal budget to cut spending. Instead, Nancy Pelosi’s routinely quoted “are you serious?” seems a more apt summation of this budget proposal.
