Republican war on unions

The GOP wouldn't have a chance to destroy unions if so many union members didn't vote for them. Maybe that will change, but I doubt it. Too many union members are convinced, for example, that Democrats will take away their guns, force their daughters to have abortions, and allow gay people to marry.

These GOP-voting union members are shooting themselves in the foot every time they vote. I blame their obvious obliviousness to the history of working people in America. I dare them to look up the Battle of Blair Mountain.

And read this Harold Meyerson piece on what the GOP is doing today to take away your right to organize.

in reference to:

"For a more comprehensive view of the Republicans' war on unions, we need to focus on what Republicans in Washington did last week. In the House, Republicans passed, as part of their continuing resolution to fund the federal government through September, a provision that slashed the funding of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) by one-third."
