GOP Plan to Force State Bankruptcy to Cripple Public Employee Unions (Video)

Monday 27 December 2010
by: | Countdown With Keith Olbermann | News Analysis
James Pethokoukis, Money and politics columnist for Reuters talks about apparent Republican support for allowing states to declare bankruptcy as a means of undermining unions. "Republicans appear to be quietly and methodically executing a plan that would ...cripple public employee unions by pushing cash-strapped states like California and Illinois to declare bankruptcy. This may be the biggest political battle ... of 2011."
