POUNDING THE WOODEN STAKE IN:

Mitch Daniels Says Public-Sector Unions Should Be Abolished (ROLAND LI, June 10, 2012, IB Times)

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels said on "Fox News Sunday" that public-sector unions should be abolished in the wake of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's victory in a recall election.

"I think, really, government works better without them," said Daniels, who restricted unions' collective-bargaining rights in his own state. "Money is being devoured by very high salaries, almost bulletproof job protection, and huge pensions."

He said private-sector unions remain "necessary," but hopes that the Walker victory will be a "turning point" in the public union system.
