    Wisconsin unions will have more rights to bargain than federal unions AFTER Scott Walker gets his bill passed!

    WSJ - It will no doubt surprise you to learn that President Obama, the great patron of the working man, also happens to be the great CEO of one of the least union-friendly shop floors in the nation.

    Fact: Those federal workers cannot bargain for wages or benefits.

    Fact: Washington, D.C. is, in the purest sense, a "right to work zone." Federal employees are not compelled to join a union, nor to pay union dues.

    Fact: Neither Mr. Obama, nor the prior Democratic majority, ever acted to give their union chums a better federal deal.

  3. In California the unions are bankrupting the state and all the major cities. For example, within four years the city of Los Angeles is going to have to spend over 30% of its total budget just on city employee pension costs and retirement benefits.
