"As the latest showdown to dominate American politics, the battle between Wisconsin’s governor and public employees, carries many unspoken messages. It tells us, for instance, that Republicans do not see collective bargaining as a fundamental human right. It also suggests that Democrats are willing -- finally! -- to draw a line in the sand. But most important of all, it shows what government really sees as its top priority."
