    Unions Handing Out Voting Cards For All Republican Businesses

    This is going to be great for America, POS Scott Walker will cost republican businesses Billions when everyone uses collective bargaining to eliminate jobs that pay minimum wage, middle class has not seen an increase in pay over cost of living since 1988,,,time to fight or walk.
    Close down any business using illegal immigrants and fine them equal to the savings from using illegal immigrants..
    Eliminate all health insurance policies that only pay for a hospital room and nothing else,, Like the rip off policies sold to workers at McDonald's all across America...Employee pays $20 per month and McDonald's pays $10 per month...Yes it is true, health insurance without any health insurance.
    If you have cancer,,there is NO PAYMENT FOR TREATMENT,,, Congress had hearings and did NOTHING..
    Welcome to the republican world.. We should do the same thing for Medicare, right?
    Send a Union rep to all McDonald's and get those employee's to take a vote, VOTE UNION,,,I DON'T MIND PAYING AN EXTRA 50 CENTS FOR A BURGER SO PEOPLE GET GOOD MEDICAL COVERAGE.

    • it is called protesting. this went on in the 60's,70's when corperate controlled govenment did not listen to the people.

      tell me what the differnce is between a philibuster and leaving the state.

      philibuster: A tactic used by a legislative representative to hinder and delay consideration of and action to be taken on a proposed bill through prolonged, irrelevant, and procrastinating speeches on the floor of the House, Senate, or other legislative body.

      the (bush administration) republicons did this more that any other administration.

      lincoln jumped out a window to avoid a vote.

    • The GOP would like to send this country back to the 1930's. We don't want to compete with China, Mexico or India...This is America, the place where the people of the world come to live a better life.
      Republicans want to kill the American Dream, how's that working for you POS Walker.

      • The rich are brainwashing the republican party. The top 1% of earners is brain washing the republican party into giving them tax cuts. That could fund a good deal of government. If you aren't in the top 1% then a tax hike on the rich does nothing but benefit your standard of living. We can not let the rich keep getting away with this. If you make less than 250,000 you shouldn't oppose tax hikes on those who do. But the Rich have brain-washed the republican party into disregarding their own self-interest. And voting in the interest of the wealthy.

    • That post was like a wrecked train, a broken pencil and a union all wrapped into one. Off track, pointless and completely irrelevant.

    • You may not mind paying 50 cents more, but the fact of the matter is that most people will. McDonalds will shrivel and die like all union companies and a new company will emerge to replace them. People don't want to pay more than they have to and will take the cheaper option. That is how McDonald's, Walmart, etc. got so big. Unions are dead, time to move on. How about getting an education so you don't have to work at McDonald's?
