Scarborough: Walker’s Victory No Gift to Dems

The New York Times declared Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s victory over public unions as a “gift” to Democrats. But nothing could be further from the truth, Joe Scarborough, the host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” writes on Politico.

“This is a curious conclusion to reach considering that Walker’s GOP has stripped public unions in his state of many collective-bargaining rights while limiting their ability to collect mandatory dues from workers. How Democrats are the beneficiaries of these draconian measures must remain a mystery to readers not employed by left-wing cable news shows or progressive bloggers.”
