Who are the real winners in Wisconsin?

Mickey Kaus says:

For now, this looks like a victory for [Governor Scott] Walker. In the very long run, if it allows government to work more efficiently without, say, elaborate rules that often require the retention of the least productive workers (who, even if threatened with layoffs, then get to “bump” lower-seniority employees, who then bump other employees) the winner will be the party that most desperately wants the government to work. That’s the Democrats. . . . I think. … At least in theory. …

Taxpayers don't have to face higher taxes/fewer services. Students don't have to suffer under as many anti-educational union rules. Teachers don't have to surrender a percentage of their income to politicians they may or may not despise.

Everybody gets something except the artificial construct called "unions" and the people who make a living off of running them.
