    Any officer, firefighter, or teacher who can find a better job at more money in the private sector would be free to do so. I suspect few would. To prohibit future fights, the unions should be dissolved and collective bargaining ended.

Obama, for example, would have a hard time convincing voters that he’d like to pass a balanced budget amendment, but those darn Republicans just won’t let him. Pig s would have to fly first.

    Like Wisconsin and other states that are being forced to deal with large budget deficits caused mostly by sweetheart deals struck between politicians and labor unions, New Jersey couldn't afford to go on like this.
