Friedrich Nietzsche said: “When you look into the abyss, the abyss also looks into you.” The thought somehow applies to Wisconsin politics post-Scott Walker. The governor, with the backing of Republican legislators and a lobby of big money interests, has worked to abolish a good deal of good values and fair play the Badger State was once known for. Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporters

Jason Stein and Patrick Marley have worked long years in Madison, and worked hard in More Than They Bargained For to present a fair portrayal of Walker’s campaign against public sector unions and efforts by Democratic legislators, unions and their supporters to block his measures.
