Daniels: Wisconsin A ‘Turning Point’ For Public Unions

Gov. Mitch Daniels (R-IN) said on Fox News Sunday that Gov. Scott Walker’s (R) victory in Wisconsin is a “turning point” for public employee unions.

“I think, really, government works better without them. I really do,” he said.

Daniels called unionization a “necessary freedom … in the private sector” but it’s a “bad idea in government.” He said the message from Wisconsin is that voters recognize the “fundamental unfairness of government becoming its own special interest group.”
