    McGovern to unions: Live with less By George S. McGovern, The Detroit News
    Maryland recently passed a law aimed at requiring Wal-Mart to spend more on health insurance. This is an extremely flawed path to health care reform. We need universal coverage, not piecemeal legislation designed to punish companies because they operate differently than their competitors.

    The fact is, demanding more from business based on sales or the number of employees is not always the best way to achieve a just result. Liberals must never abandon their core principles of justice and equality. But union leaders who still see American businesses as the enemy must update that vision."
