    Democrats threaten violence on Michigan House floor

    Dem Rep. Doug Geiss threatens from house floor "THERE WILL BE BLOOD" - YouTube

    Democrats threaten violence on Michigan House floor | WashingtonExaminer.com

    There will be blood,” State Representative Douglas Geiss threatened from the floor of the Michigan House of Representatives today as the body debated legislation that would make Michigan the nation’s 24th right to work state.

    “I really wish we had not gone here,” Geiss continued. “It is the leadership in this house that has led us here. The same leadership that tried to throw a bomb right on election day, leading to a member switching parties, and came in at the 11th hour with a gotcha bill. For that, I do not see solace, I do not see peace.”

    I find that disgusting. We live in a democratic nation. If "the majority" wants the state to be Right to Work, then that's what ought to happen. That asshole should be ashamed of himself.

    And the majority in the US Senate passed the affordable health care act back in December of 1999.

    Nothing wrong with that.
    When it comes to matters of reproduce health, Politicians and the religious dogma of another faith should never interfere with religious liberty of an individual or her faith.

    Are you assuming I don't agree? You'd be assuming wrong.

    Teachers ditched school to protest. And in a place where only 7% of eighth graders can read.

    Title says Democrats.


    Article says Democrat.

    God forbid someone be allowed to work without being forced to pay a union they don't want to join.

    Freedom in the eyes of the Democrat party.

    This is a bill being pushed through by lame duck GOP representatives in a lame duck session, this would not pass with the new MI House (the GOP lost 4 seats in Nov), multiple GOP reps have spoken out against this tactic and support the Dem objections.
