The Republicans won a sweeping victory in last November’s election in Congress and in Governor races nationwide, it now seems that they’ve identified what they perceive to be America’s budget problem…. Working families and Unions. Forget the fact that Wall Street Bankrupted the State’s Pension funds with their reckless activities over the last several years, these Governors (including Ohio’s own John Kasich) are determined to break a long time bastion of the Democratic party, Unions and their members. But the Unions aren’t going to take this lying down. Tami Luhby from Cnnmoney.com wrote this:
“Lots of state officials are pressing public employees to shoulder more of their health care and pension costs.
But in some places — notably Wisconsin and Ohio — officials are looking to go one step farther. Governors and lawmakers there are trying to limit or end public workers’ collective bargaining ability, effectively neutering the unions. “
It is up to us to put pressure on Law makers if we disagree with their policy. Don’t sleep while the government passes laws that affect you and your family, stand up and be heard like the demonstrators in Wisconsin and Ohio.
