Even Liberals Now Are Standing Up to Unions

By Ira Stoll, NewsMax.com

America is approaching the point where the government employee unions are so powerful that even the liberals think they’re getting out of control.

It used to be that taking on public-sector unions was the job of conservative Republicans like President Reagan, who took on the federal air traffic controllers, or Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin, who passed a law curbing the ability of government employee unions in his state to bargain collectively.

But it’s gotten to the point where even New York’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg — a mayor who favors tightened government restrictions on guns, tobacco, trans fats, and large bottles of non-dietetic iced tea, and who endorsed President Obama’s re-election — is drawing a line in the sand.
