Project 21’s Deneen Borelli says that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, working with a mandate from voters last November, is “taking a stand on principle” in the effort to eliminate his state’s budget deficit through collective bargaining reform for some public employees. Deneen notes that organized labor is trying to “make an example” of the governor in an effort to stop such reforms both in Wisconsin and in many other states where budget crises loom and trimming lavish benefits packages may also be an option to stave off fiscal ruin.

Deneen is interviewed in this segment by host Jamie Colby on the 2/19/11 edition of “America’s News Headquarters” on the Fox News Channel. The Project 21 black leadership network is a program of The National Center for Public Policy Research.
