Sarah Palin says Wisconsin Gov. Walker doing the right thing battling unions

The headline:  Sarah Palin: Wis. gov doing the right thing with unions

The link:  http://www.dailyrecord.com/article/B3/20110417/NJNEWS18/110417002/0/NJSPORTS033003/Sarah-Palin-Wis-gov-doing-right-thing-unions-?odyssey=nav%7chead

The summary:  Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin says at a rally that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is doing the right thing by eliminating union’s collective bargaining rights since it saves jobs.

The reaction:  Well, what did you expect her to say?

Walker said that if he didn’t get his anti-union “budget repair” bill passed that he would have to lay off hundreds of public employees so technically she might be right but it’s very much debatable if he’s doing the “right thing”.  Walker is essentially taking away the power of unions (that tend to be heavily Democrat) so he can further pursue his political agenda.  So it’s not surprising at all that Palin is on his side.

Walker admitted himself last week that the budget bill doesn’t save money.

    I laughed so hard at your description of ‘the reaction’. What would one expect, indeed.
