    this card check bill is a much greater concern than the few points Obama wants to add to marginal tax rates

    Unions prevent tomorrow's jobs from being created by protecting jobs that should have been cut in the past.

    Unions can control all the worker bees they want and run up the prices all they want, they can't force us to buy their shittly little cars. Not yet anyways!

    With this bill, they're trying to target corporations like Wal-Mart that haven't unionized. Wal-Mart employees seem to be content without a big union. Again the government trying to force things on people because they think it's better for us.

    Yep. They are targeting, one may ask why, but not for long. The ability to question may become moot.

    Why can't the union members take a pay cut as well?

    They'd be ok if they made 40/hr instead of $70/hr. $40/hr is good money. They don't deserve to make $70/hr, considering the cars their companies are trying to force upon us.

    It's better than being out of a job completely.

    Hey, it's a start.

    You know, that's not such a bad idea Paulitics. Instead of the taxpayer bailing out the companies so that they can continue to receive fat cash at the expense of the taxpayer, let the fuckers bail themselves out.

    Hell....they've been paid enough long enough. I kinda find it sad when a person sweeping floors at the GM plant makes more than a teacher with tenure.
