Romney’s plan will lead us to a Chinese Democracy where a balance will never be struck.

i would go further to say that public (government worker) unions should be banned. Government workers are our employees, they work for us. If you want higher pay, better benefits, go work in the private sector. Government jobs are for public servants. Anything else is just counter to the vision of the founding fathers.
To all the people that actually think the unions have "your best interests at heart" wake up, get a clue you are gullible. You really think that AFL-CIO or SEIU really care one little bit what happens to you? About as muchg as apple cares what happens to you. You are nothing but a revenue stream to them. The advatage to the unionis, they can force you to pay the dues even if you do not want to be apart of their little cabal.
Can anyone say a Teachers Union has backed a Republican?
It was the middle of July, and the race to represent Indiana's 36th district in the state senate was heating up. Incumbent Brent Waltz, an investment-banking Republican known for his fiscal conservatism, faced a challenge from Mary Ann Sullivan, a Democratic state representative who has helped launch several charter schools. Then, something unexpected happened. Faced with the choice of endorsing the Republican businessman or the school-savvy Democrat, the Public Action Committee of the Indiana State Teacher's Association (ISTA) endorsed Waltz.

Well...isn't it obvious? Corporations are people...but people aren't people.
Sure Mittens...whatever you say.
On the contrary: people who work for the govt shouldn't have undue influence over their govt (i.e.publicly provided)pay and benefits. Otherwise the locks are off the candy store!
Are you people purposely being "divergent"?edit on 28-9-2012 by 46ACE because: (no reason given)

If the teachers unions should be limited then all companies should also be limited. Oil and energy companies that receive subsides should be limited because of the amount of kickback they get for their contributions.
