WASHINGTON — Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels (R) criticized public-sector unions on Sunday, saying they should be eliminated entirely.
“There’s, I think, a fundamental problem with government becoming its own special interest group,” he told Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday.” “Ultimately, there is not really bargaining in those situations because government sits on both sides of the table.”
Wallace then asked whether Daniels would like to see public-sector unions disappear entirely.
“I think government works better without them, I really do,” Daniels replied.
Our failure to stop Scott Walker in Wisconsin is going to have national implications for the labor movement and Democratic politics. The short-sighted DPW and national party who failed to engage early and strong will ultimately be their undoing.
