I think it should be,

"How liberals lost power in WI".

It can start with:

Telling regular, hardworking folks, the government union workers are slaves when they are asked to only pay a small portion of their helth and pension.

Most taxpayers still, post Walker changes, pay way more than government workers for both penson and health ins. in the private sector.

Both these lavish benefit costs were killing local government budgets.

But you want this to be Greece, don't you? Greece is what happens when you pilfer the economy...and you run out of leaders and achievers to pilfer.
