Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Rightwing nutjobs looking to kill public employee union bargaining rights in…Massachusetts?

And by “rightwing nutjobs”, I clearly mean “a blue state with a blue House, blue Senate, and blue governor”…aka Taxachusetts!  Details:

The 111-to-42 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.Unions fought hard to stop the bill, launching a radio ad that assailed the plan and warning legislators that if they voted for the measure, they could lose their union backing in the next election. After the vote, labor leaders accused House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo and other Democrats of turning their backs on public employees.

“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.’’

Huh.  It’s as if the taxpayers don’t want to be sodomized by government employee unions or something!

  1. Could it be that the citizens of that state have let their reps in government that they are tired of getting screwed by the unions? That would be amazing, the citizens influencing the demonrats in MA, not the unions. Hmmmmmmm, have to think about that one.

  4. Is it more to the truth that they want to make it a puishble crime of 50 years for union brownshirts to intimadate and threaten nonunion workers

  5. Well, I have to take a moment to savor this huge, juicy morsel called POETIC JUSTICE. Unions outraged by politicians that PROMISED them something yet ultimately, they were but merely manipulated into being temporarily-useful voters; and to ultimately be betrayed because the dems actually had the pure GALL to represent the PEOPLE of their state rather than union labor….mwahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!
