It's funny when I went to the DC Tea Party Rally I meet quite a few Union Folks who were very upset with Congress.
    sheet metal local 54 here my friend, and most everyone union or non I know is very worried about ever-increasing insurance premiums, deductables, and drug prices.

    Find the part in the Constitution that says Health Care is a right.

    Indeed there is, and the Constitution says very specifically that everything not in the Constitution is not the job of the Federal government.

    It's that little thing called the Tenth Amendment.

    Here in MO. the commercials supporting Obamas health care plan are paid for by US pharmaceutical companies. Just saying

    Edit-

    Wanted to add a few things here.


    Obama gives powerful drug lobby a seat at healthcare table - Los Angeles Times

    Yet everyone agrees that drug companies -- Washington's leading source of lobbyist money -- now have "a seat at the table" at the White House and on Capitol Hill as healthcare legislation works its way through Congress. If nothing else, a popular president who six months ago criticized drug companies for greed now praises their work on behalf of the public good.

    "Since Obama came into office, the drug industry has received everything it wants, domestic and foreign," said James Love, who leads an international nonprofit promoting low-cost distribution of drugs to fight the world's most devastating diseases.

    "Yes, the drug companies are getting tremendous sweetheart deals" from Obama, said Lawrence Jacobs, a University of Minnesota political scientist who studies the history of health reform and other major social and economic changes. "But these bargains are the price of admission for achieving substantial reform."
    And you were saying?

    Then they wouldn't join most unions, organizations such as many of them use intimidation and strong-arm tactics to get moderate gains for the lower rungs while the union leaders take in huge dollars. Jimmy Hoffa anyone?
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Dude, seriously, you don't have any clue what you are talking about, and you aren't a United States citizen, so please do excuse me if I regard your opinion as completely irrelevant.

    Shut up Peter you don't live here so you really don't understand what is going on. It's not the Unions Per Say we have a problem with it's the Union Leadership using members Funds for something that they shouldn't be using it for.

    Now run along and be a happy member of that failed experaince know as the EU

    If socialized medicine is so bad, why is the life expectancy in France so much longer that it is in the United States?
