Defeating the corrupt bargain between Democrats and public employee unions

NY Times:

Wisconsin’s Legacy for Unions

Could a law that so swiftly deflated unions’ power become the pattern for other states? It’s labor’s worst fear.
What the Wisconsin law did was break up the inherent conflict of interest between unions collecting dues from government employees who then use those dues to support Democrats  who in turn negotiate with the unions for higher pay and no one in the bargaining process is representing the interest of the tax payers.  As the Wisconsin case shows the old deal was a good one for Democrats and union bosses, but not that great for anyone else and that is why the unions deflated so quickly.  Other states would be better off if they followed the same plan.
