Quote of the Day
From the final paragraph of the opinion of 7th Circuit Court Judge David F. Hamilton, a 2009 Obama appointee to the court, on the Act 10 ruling.
Hamilton, concurred in parts and dissented in others in a separate opinion.
As I said at the outset, elections have consequences. The United States Constitution does not forbid all legislation that rewards friends and punishes opponents. The principal provisions of Wisconsin’s Act 10 may fit that description, but they are still constitutional under the generous standard of rational-basis review.
Translation: Best of luck in any future appeal unionistas.
