    Most of us know those are state jobs and not a Federal responsibility. Would you have supported the stimulus spending of Obama told you he was going to save union jobs instead of creating jobs?

    Yep, everyone knows that a good politician will always promote killing seniors, starving, kids, and polluting the air then go ask them for their vote in the next election

    It was the federal government's responsibility to respond to the Great Recession. It so happens that one of the most effective ways to do that was to help the states avoid major layoffs. It had nothing to do with unions. That's a wingnut fantasy.

    It was and is the state responsibility and the citizens of the state to respond to the needs in their community. Now answer the question, is that how the stimulus was sold?

    I see we agree. We can fix this problem by eliminating public sector unions.

    The Federal Government's responsibility is to do those things that are enumerated in the Constitution of the United States Article 1 Section 8. And that is ALL! This notion that our money that funds these powers is unlimited is a crock.

    Unions were created to better balance the interests of the employees and the employer.
    The people of the state in question employ the members of a public sector union.

    So... public sector unions are not competing against the interests of "the man", but "the people".

    Given that, there's every reason to limit these unions and what they can bargain for.
