    Corker lied to the workers telling them he was told that VW would not build a new SUV in Chattanooga if workers approved the union.

    That is your opinion and you're welcome to it. I disagree and believe they added welcome truth to the debate. That's why we have what J.S. Mill referred to as the marketplace of ideas.

    Corker told the auto workers they would not get the next line of autos if the Union was brought in.
    As did a State Senator, who threatened to cut-off more bennies to VW if the Union came in.
    Did that help ?

    Right, it had nothing to do with the union, but rather funding Dems

    My opinion that Corker lied? I don't think so.

    And your claim is that he was not told that? I had no idea your knowledge of Corker's conversations was so comprehensive.
