As you watch your children board the school bus for the first day back to classes, consider this: That school bus driver likely is forced to pay fees to a union as a condition of driving that bus. Why? Because Minnesota is one of 22 forced-unionism states in America, states where...

Other View: Congress, Trump must now fix Obamacare
