Let's say that the state Supreme Court decides (assuming a decision comes after the mediocrity that will be Justice Kloppenburg is seated) to invalidate the Legislature's passage of the budget repair bill.
What was Gov. Walker's stated alternative to the budget repair bill? I seem to remember writing back during the Fleeing Fourteen nonsense:
- Give government employees smaller, but still better, benefits than private-sector workers, and retain their wage collective-bargaining rights, or …
- Reduce the government workforce by up to 12,000.
Better hope the (inevitable) recount goes Prosser's way.
