    In advance of a major Occupy rally planned for Tuesday, President Obama delivered a speech this morning filled with class warfare rhetoric.

    The president warned union members that Republicans would rather give "rich folks" more tax breaks, than invest in the American worker.

    "Republicans in Congress would rather put fewer of you to work rebuilding America than ask millionaires and billionaires to live without massive new tax cuts on top of the ones they’ve already gotten," Obama declared in a speech to to construction union members at the Hilton hotel in Washington.

    Obama added that Republicans' economic plan depended on tax cuts for the rich and "dismantling your unions."

    GWB and the tax payer saved the UAW right by there selves
    And Obama claims the GOP is dismantling unions

    So the GOP is not actively and legislatively anti-union? News to me, they would ban them outright if that darned constitution was not in the way.

    name one event in which the GOP has went after the unions?
    Why make this stuff up?
    Unions have destroyed them selves and the only politician that has done any-thing for the unions in my life-time was GWB
    He saved the UAW after congress told him not to

    Damn dude talk about having it up side down

    Have you been asleep the last 30 years? Ask ALEC about the numerous union busting bills that have passed through the states. Chip, chip, chipping away a little at a time.

    Lets see if you can link to one as a place to start
    And who is ALEC?
    One more thing
    I am a huger supporter of the trade unions such as the Pipe fitters, carpenters, etc...
    They can get out of hand with the rhetoric, but for unions have it pretty close to the way they should operate

    The Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest five percent of Americans cost the U.S. Treasury $11.6 million every hour, according to the National Priorities Project. Between 2001 and the current projected end of the Bush tax cut extension, tax cuts for the wealthiest 5 percent will cost the U.S. Treasury $1.184 trillion. If extended through 2021 as gop lawmakers propose, the total cost will exceed $3.2 trillion.

    Republicans hate the Middle Class. I guessing because most are the "crazy poor".
