Previously, unions were weakened in Ohio and Wisconsin..
Today its in Massachusetts.
And the culprits this time... Democrats.. so-called 'liberal' Dems.
(Mass.) House votes to restrict unions (Boston Globe) -- "House lawmakers voted overwhelmingly last night to strip police officers, teachers, and other municipal employees of most of their rights to bargain over health care... vote followed tougher measures to broadly eliminate collective bargaining rights for public employees in Ohio, Wisconsin, and other states. But unlike those efforts, the push in Massachusetts was led by Democrats who have traditionally stood with labor to oppose any reduction in workers’ rights.
"It’s pretty stunning,’’ said Robert J. Haynes, president of the Massachusetts AFL-CIO. “These are the same Democrats that all these labor unions elected. The same Democrats who we contributed to in their campaigns. The same Democrats who tell us over and over again that they’re with us, that they believe in collective bargaining, that they believe in unions. . . . It’s a done deal for our relationship with the people inside that chamber.’’ "
~ We've said it before..going to say it again. When it comes to economic issues, there is No difference between the Republicans and Democrats. Yes, you may find a Dennis Kucinich here or a Ron Paul here.. but overall.. none. The differences are in social issues and hot-button topics that stir passions and the 'us v them' mindset which is so important to securing donations during election cycles.
