There's not a whole lot to add to the video below. Jonah Edelman smugly discusses how he managed to snooker the teacher unions into accepting deals clearly not in their interest. It shows, yet again, how Obama's people, specifically Rahm Emannuel and Arne Duncan, are not friends of people who need to work for a living.
Most importantly, it shows "reformers" are not to be trusted. Edelman boasts of how his people were able to write the "fine print" on this deal, and how union reps dropped the ball and failed to exert due diligence. The best we can hope from a hard lesson like this is that union leadership wake up and pay close attention.
