Wisconsin Supreme Court Allows Collective Bargaining Law To Take Effect

"We am you're childs future."

Score one for the good guys.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed the polarizing collective bargaining law to go into effect.

The Supreme Court overturned a lower court's ruling that blocked the implementation of the law.

Republicans who control the Legislature had been hoping the court would rule on the law before they started debate on the budget Tuesday. If the court hadn't ruled, Republicans planned to add the collective bargaining provisions to the state budget.

State Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, R-Juneau, and Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald, R-Horicon, issued a statement on Tuesday afternoon restating their belief the law was passed legally. They called the court's decision a "vindication."

In the private sector, wage and pension demands are tempered by competition. If one company pays too much, a competitor takes his business. But governments are monopolies. They face no competition and get their money by force. So they can conspire with public-sector unions to milk taxpayers. That explains the fix we're in today.
