    SNIP:

    On MSNBC's "Ed Show" tonight, Leo Gerard, head of the United Steelworkers Union, warned Democrats not to compromise at all on the fiscal cliff. Gerard said any Democrats who does get weak knees isn't a "real Democrat." and suggested they will suffer the same fate as former Democratic Senator Blanche Lincoln. Lincoln lost the general election in 2010 after she wasted a lot of her resources fighting off a more liberal challenger in the primary earlier that year.

    Hardliners of both parties are both telling their parties NOT to compromise.


    How many times have we already read them saying the same thing here?

    What is it with Unions all of a sudden?

    In the span of a week and a half, they've destroyed a corporate icon, threatened to strike on one of the busiest shopping days of the year, threaten to shut down one of the busiest airports in America and now are threatening Democrats over compromises in the "fiscal cliff" issue.
