Big Labor and the DNC... it’s like a woman who won’t bring charges against the husband who beats her.
In the end... the unions will give the DNC all the money they want.
You mean give the DNC all the union members can pony up from dues as long as it doesn’t interfere with the union bosses life style?
Notice also that Soros spends little money on congressional races since Emperor BO has made them largely irrelevant.
I used to work in a steel mill. The union leader had a car newer and flashier than the one owned by the President/Owner of the company.
I have been associated with 3 unions in my life.
The number one personal characteristic of almost everyone of the business agents were young girlfriends that either worked in the office at the hall or for one of the signatory companies.
Every business agent I knew gained about 20-25 lbs. per year and within a few years most ended up with a divorce.
I read right here that the public will know what's in it 60 days before it is voted on. I wonder which story is true.
LOL! Waitin’ on somebody to take julian assange up on his $100,000 bounty for a copy. With the gop in charge of the house and senate now everything should be just fine. /s
Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch.
There are two ways to get someone’s support. The first is by promising them things. But the second is to offer to *not* take what they have left.
This latter thing is what conservative Republicans should offer to unions. Join with conservatives against both the Democrats and the Republican party leadership, and we will offer you *no* jobs destroying TPP, and a level playing field in business.
We will not vote laws that favor you, but at the national level, we won’t attack you if you don’t attack us.
Support us and live. Support the Democrats and RINOs, and it will be nice knowing you as you fade away into nothing.
