Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI), who just signed a law curtailing public employee unions that was opposed by the state's voters in all the polls, is predicting that it will become popular when people see how well it works -- and he's using some interesting language to make that point.The Associated Press
In an interview with The Associated Press, Walker said once the public sees government becoming more efficient, support for the changes will increase.
"What we're doing here, I think, is progressive. It's innovative. It's reform that leads the country, and we're showing there's a better way by sharing in that sacrifice with all of us in government," he said.
He also added: "People, I believe, in times of crisis want leadership. They want leaders who identify the problem, identify a solution and then act on it. That's what we did."
