Public employee unions and their socialist allies will take to the streets of Washington, D.C. and state capitals as the federal and state governments finally deal with out of control spending.

It’s largely because, for the longest time, our elected leaders were more interested in courting unions for money and votes than keeping government spending in check.

And some are still putting the problem off – and actually making it worse – by continuing to negotiate multi-year contracts with unions with no real way to pay for them. That’s particularly true in our nation’s public schools.

In Anderson, Indiana, the union-controlled school board recently tried to pull a fast one and actully negotiated an unheard-of 10-year contract with the teachers union.  Community outrage led to court action and the length of the contract was cut to 5 years – still way too long in this economic climate.

More recently, news surfaced that the state could be taking over that district because it could be insolvent within two years.
