Governors all over the country are struggling with budget deficits.  Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker made some bold changes especially with the public employee unions, and not everyone liked it.  But a majority of Wisconsin voters supported him in Tuesday's Recall Election.  Steve Buckstein with the Cascade Policy Institute in Portland feels Governor Kitzhaber should take notice.  “Now I hope Governor Kitzhaber will look at the results in Wisconsin and realize he can go further.  I don't have to burn bridges with public employee unions.  After the reforms in Wisconsin, a majority of union members stopped paying dues when they weren't forced to pay them.  In Oregon, it’s taken out of your paychecks.  But it's time to see how many of the people would really support the political agenda of their union.”  Governor Walker defeated his Democratic opponent in the recall election by 7 percentage points.
