oh, wait, it is Democrats doing it in MA, so it is merely a "necessary budget matter".
Not that this has mollified labor. Robert J. Haynes, president of the Massachusetts AFL-CIO, was so irked he forgot to stick to the union script about "rights" and a "war" on the "middle class." He skipped to the real outrage—that the 81 Democrats who voted for the bill were failing to play by the political rules. "These are the same Democrats that all these labor unions elected. The same Democrats who we contributed to in their campaigns," he complained. The unions would fight this to the "bitter end," he vowed. "Massachusetts is not the place that takes collective bargaining away from public employees."Got that? They skip the fake rhetoric about "war on middle class" and "union busting" and get to the meat -- those are Democrats that are bought and paid for by the unions, what the hell do they think they are doing??!!!!
Can we EVER get by the complete partisanship that makes dealing with the same real problem a national circuis in WI, but a quiet internicene hissy fit in MA. We ALL have to deal with the totally obvious real problems with public unions being financial bag men for Democrat politicians so they can pad each other's pockets at public expense. Please people, do we want to be self governing or do we want to be Chinese puppets???
