It is so nice to see the Union Thugs coming under scrutiny by the masses. Folks should be able to choose whether they want representation or not. They should be able to choose whether their union Dues supports the political candidates they want. Folks should also have the right to work free from union pressure to join their political organization. I can only hope this spreads from coast to coast. The taxpayers deserve to get a fair shake with the politicians that the unions routinely purchase for their own benefit.Anti-union group’s ad scores in Super Bowl
Spot for Hill bill breaks new ground

Only Washington-area viewers got to see it, but a $150,000 Super Bowl ad broadcast Sunday night threw an unexpected spotlight on a push by Capitol Hill Republicans to rewrite labor rules to weaken the power of union officials over individual workers.
The Employee Rights Act, introduced last August by Sen. Orrin G. Hatch of Utah and Rep. Tim Scott of South Carolina, both Republicans, was broadcast amid the top-dollar ads for cars, beer and Internet domain companies.
The bill would require workers to reaffirm the continued existence of their unions with new votes every three years. It also would place limits on strikes, how quickly a union can organize a work site, and how membership fees may be used to support political candidates. It has yet to receive a committee hearing in either chamber.
“The reaction has been great,” said Rick Berman, founder of the Center for Union Facts, the conservative lobbying group that sponsored the Super Bowl ad. “This is a campaign to educate people about what’s wrong with labor law in this country.”
