Norquist: Walker, Christie Riding Popular Tide

Tuesday, 22 Feb 2011 07:49 PM

Governors who take on public unions, as Republicans Scott Walker of Wisconsin and Chris Christie of New Jersey have done, can count on at least one thing, says Grover Norquist president of Americans for Tax Reform. That’s the support of voters, the Newsmax contributor writes on Politico.

“Labor union bosses have used their political muscle to extort great gobs of taxpayer money. Government workers are paid more, have more holidays, more sick leave, better pensions and benefits and ridiculous job security. … Voters will support those governors that tackle the root causes of high taxes and slow growth -- public sector unionism and unresponsive civil servants.”
