    please don't speak about things you have no understanding of, that being collective bargaining and unions, thankyou. you have your fantasy of what unions are and what dues are spent on, nothing i could say would change your mind, so move along.

    And Wall Street does?

    And the auto industry does?

    And companies that outsource/offshore "give a damn about their own state or how their benefits impact it?"

    Edit: Before bashing on unions, let's look at everyone shall we?

    Seems that someone who belongs to the unions doesn't have a clue as to what your union is doing with your money. I find that a lot with liberals who believe what they are told and never verify the rhetoric. Union leadership is making a fool out of you.

    We have a 3.7 trillioin dollar Federal Budget that costs us all. how much does Wall Street or any other private business cost you? You don't like what a company does, don't buy from them. Try doing tht with your taxes?

    The issue here is PUBLIC UNIONS. You do know the difference between public and private unions? How much do those private unions cost you? You paying for their healthcare and pensions?

    Cannot defend your position, I see. That is what liberals always say when challenged. Amazing how foolish the union leadership makes their employees look.

    Honestly? Your UAW gave this voluntarily to the two parties? I guess either the UAW is made up almost exclusively of democrats or the workers weren't asked what party they wanted to contribute to.

    Your completely ignoring the issue I bought up. Since you are saying that unions "give a damn about their own state or how their benefits impact it," I am bringing up examples of how Wall Street has screwed over the entire nation, the auto industry as well and also the states in which they resided in as well as companies that outsource and offshore don't "give a damn about their own state or how their benefits impact it." Please address the issue I bought up. So far the US government "had lent, spent or guaranteed as much as $12.8 trillion to rescue the economy" to Wall Street. Source and the defense industry, along with the Pentagon's own crappy cost system, has cost the US taxpayers billions, Source.

    Also military spending is screwing us over, source, and guess who are the main (economic) beneficiaries of defense spending?

    Oh yeah! US defense corporations.
