    I don't disagree with this. Bet I could be more competitive for the job by not being union.

    why should you be able to walk into a shop, decline to join the union, get a job, making the same the money as the union members, and enjoy the benefit of representation without being a member of the union, and without contributing union dues to the union? why should you get all the benefits but not pay for it ? i don't think so! screw that

    I'd be glad to do that. I bet that management would pay me more than the union workers anyway after they saw how much more productive I was.

    Simple. Because you're doing the same job.

    No, here's the way it works. Let's take the teacher's union.

    Taxpayers pay taxes. Those taxes pay the teachers. Those teachers pay union dues. The union takes those dues and funds the campaigns of liberal union-friendly candidates.

    Anyone paid with taxpayer money should not be able to unionize. Period.

    And yet they didn't.

    The filibuster was put there specifically to prevent the imposing of the majority on the minority. I don't see this as any different. Using parliamentary procedures to block a bill.
    You mean like Obama saying, "I won and you lost?" Obama got his agenda through a totally partisan Democrat controlled Congress and then got shellacked in Nov. 2010. Whenthe American people speak supporting liberals it is the will of the people but when the American voter speaks against liberals it is sham election results and Democrats run from their responsibility.
