Hi I am AFL-CIO or I was until the decided to screw the company over. They would fight for things like wearing t-shirts instead of the uniforms and so on and so on. Unions are not bad it is the greedy as* people running them it is like organized crime. When are local head would come down his shirt was open to his belly button and had many gold chains this is a little sketchy in my eyes. I am unemployed because of one thing and that one thing is unions I wish I could get back my 12 years of dues.

I'm confused on why out-right corruption and scams is considered "liberal" unless you people don't know what you're talking about. I stray pretty far to the left compared to most of you and I find this appalling and pathetic. I'm sorry but any "liberal" with any sense in his brain hates Obama for his raping of the economy and the expansion of the wars. The only people who like this crook is the rich.
I #ing hate unions too. One of my earliest memory was crossing a teamster line when they were picketing my parents small business. Unions are nothing more than organized crime in the modern world. I'm not saying they don't do good and that we should get rid of them. I'm just saying modern unions are bull#.

The world seems so backwards. Politicians representing business and finance but not the people.
And yet they always turn to the gentry with a frown and say we gotta buckle up or tighten our belts or stand up or sit down and most of us bark and wag our tails...
Can Obama do this backroom deal on his power alone or does he need Congress to approve it?
Either way this stinks to high heaven.
Mr. Obama traveled to Capitol Hill to reassure House Democrats who feared a vote for the bill would be politically damaging. "I know how big a lift this has been. I see the polls," Mr. Obama said. He promised to wage a "great campaign from one end of the country to the other" to sell the legislation to the public should it become law.

Sorry man, but this type of baiting is getting old. Many people (liberals, mid-liners, conservatives and other) finding issue with this...

"From talking to a good deal of people today and sending this article to many people (my liberal friends included), this deal seems to be a turning point for many. There is no good excuse even for the most staunch supporter of Obama, and they can recognize how politically dirty this is. This seems like it is going to backfire big time, and has started to already."
Johnny do you really believe that Obama and his cohorts care what repercussions there are from the public. The people have been against everything congress has pushed thru in the last year. Yet they still keep cramming the legislation down our throats. There must be far more at stake than they are prepared to tell us,as they do not seem to worried about their reelections. There must be some very scary people above the congress for them to lose their fear of the voters.
