Even after Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker made history by becoming the first governor to win his recall election, the liberals in Madison want to torpedo the people’s mandate (“Payback time in Wisconsin,” Comment & Analysis, Dec. 18).

Mr. Walker’s union law merely requires public-employee union workers to pay a fraction more for their pensions and health care and removes the unions’ monopoly on giving themselves raises.

A judge in hyperliberal Dane County has claimed the law is “unconstitutional,” but the people have spoken — twice. The unions need to keep their hands out of taxpayers’ pockets and pay their fair share.
