Just to show you dont know what you are talking about, why would you want to "curb" my husband's union? He was a union laborer, you or no taxpayer ever paid into his retirement. He did every paycheck, plus health insurance that you or no one ever paid a dime for. He traveled from state to state, job to job for over 40 years, at our own expense. But your type cant stand to reward real working people because you feel slighted and left out. And Wall Street could not steal our retirement in 2008 because our union had it protected in a trust fund in a bank.
Not all unions are bad. But that is the impression everyone has because of the hate for government employees.

Corruption is most certainly not gone at the federal level.
Corruption is ubiquitous and cannot be eliminated.
"Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority; still more when you superadd the tendency of the certainty of corruption by authority."
The whole quote from Acton is rarely cited.
