A Glimpse of Sanity in Massachusetts

Massachusetts, a state on the brink of financial disaster, has removed the right of collective bargaining by public employees over health care issues. Massachusetts' overwhelmingly Democratic legislature acted for the same motives the state of Wisconsin legislature acted earlier this year -- to reign in the exhorbitant "deal" provided to public employees that taxpayers cannot afford.

The public employee unions cannot demonize the Massachusetts action as a Republican attack on unionism since the Republicans were not in the forefront of the effort in Massachusetts to strip the public employee unions of bargaining rights -- it was done by the Democrats!

Wonder why the President didn't weigh in on the Massachusetts action?
