Ace of Spades and Dan Riehl focus on the Illinois demonstration for higher taxes.
Just pass out a piece of paper for people to put their address on. We can bill them for higher taxes.
At Ace, they see the public waking up that higher pay for government workers means less pay for them.
I don't think the unions understand this. They are getting more aggressive and obnoxious about their undeservedly high salaries and pension plans rather than being conciliatory about it. They are continuing to demand salaries and benefits that most of the rest of the country could only dream of without even offering even the slightest apologies to the strapped taxpayers whose incomes they are reducing in order to increase their own.
