After spending at least a month “right in the corner of (Wis.) Gov. Scott Walker 100 percent,” Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain toldMilwaukee’s Journal Sentinel today that Ohio’s Senate Bill 5, a wide-ranging anti-collective-bargaining bill that was trounced at the polls on Tuesday, may have been an overreach.
“[M]aybe they tried to get too much and as a result it failed,” he told the Journal Sentinel.
Cain added that he believed public employees had the right to collective bargaining but not “collective hijacking.”
“… If [public-employee unions] have gotten so much for so many years and it’s going to bankrupt the state,” he told the newspaper’s editorial board. “I don’t think that’s good. It appears that in some instances, they really don’t care.”
Wisconsin passed its own collective-bargaining reform law, drawing tens of thousands of protestersto the state’s Capitol and sparking a movement to recallGovernor Scott Walker and several state legislators. Unlike Ohio’s law, however, Wisconsin’s excluded public safety unions, such as firefighters and police, from the measures; Ohio’s law, spearheaded by Governor John Kasich, did not.
Cain told the Journal Sentinel Ohio lawmakers “may have tried to get too much in one bill.”
Cain, formerly the CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, Inc., also fielded questions about President Obama’s handling of the Libyan civil war; he said he would have handled it differently at the planning level, but didn’t provide details of how.
