Boehner Stands With Walker

Views

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has come out with a statement in support of Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s union-busting ways in Wisconsin.

But keep in mind the larger context here.

Wisconsin isn’t the only place where there’s a showdown over collective bargaining for public employees. Brian Beutler surveys the national landscape, including Boehner’s home state of Ohio, where Republican Gov. John Kasich is backing a bill similar to the one that has sparked protests in Madison.
