Campaigning out in Ohio today, Mitt Romney stopped by a phone bank that was trying to annoy Ohioans into supporting their governor's reform of Ohio's public sector unions.
In March, Governor Jon Kasich signed into law reforms that:
1) Required government workers to pay 10% of their wages toward state pensions.
2) Banned public-employee unions from bargaining over health insurance.
3) Instituted merit pay over seniority pay.
4) Made public-employee striking illegal and eliminated binding arbitration.
5) Made union dues voluntary.
Kaisch declared that he saved the state $1.3 billion. And naturally liberals organized a ballot initiative to repeal this reform.
Romney strolled into midst of hardworking activists trying to save their reforms from repeal and resolutely refused to endorse Kaisch's reforms.
