When public sector labor unions bargain with the government, both sides sit on the same side of the table. The taxpayer side of the table is empty. Why not give representation on that side of the table to the taxpayers? And who better than as the representative of the taxpayers than a properly nominated delegation from the Tea Party?
If the Tea Party is not the right “element” to be on the other side of the table, then please propose an alternative. The problem is that the taxpayer side has always been empty.
