But remember how Republicans complained Obamacare passed to quickly after Obama campaigned and spent his entire first year debating it?
Never again. We will laugh in their face when they protest how quickly a bill was passed by Democratic legislators.
So now in Michigan, Republicans passed a Right to Work law in just an hour and a half over the protests of tens of thousands of voters. Like Scott Walker on ending same day registration, Gov. Snyder said he wasn't interested in signing any legislation like right to work. But if given the chance...well, you know the answer.
Republican never made any sense when they argued for right to work, and against paying union dues or being a part of the union. If they didn't like the conditions of their employment, why did they take the job in the first place? They could have always found a job somewhere else, instead of destroying union membership for those who are perfectly happy with it?
Why didn't they leave well enough alone? You can call it rugged individualism, a way of defunding a union's First Amendment right to contribute to politicians, or a strong authoritarian need to control everything. All of the above?
Here's the story of freeloading conservative politicians and workers who don't want to pay union dues, but still want to reap the benefits, which by the way will disappear soon anyway. Goodbye living wages folks. Ezra Klein:
Fox News: Republicans rushed right-to-work legislation through the Michigan Legislature Thursday, drawing raucous protests from hundreds of union supporters, some of whom were pepper-sprayed by police when they tried to storm the Senate chamber.
Republicans in Indiana and Wisconsin recently pushed through legislation curbing union rights, sparking massive protests.
Even before the Michigan bills surfaced, protesters streamed inside the Capitol preparing for what appeared inevitable after Snyder, House Speaker Jase Bolger and Senate Minority Leader Randy Richardville announced at a news conference they were putting the issue on a fast track. "This is all about taking care of the hard-working workers in Michigan, being pro-worker and giving them freedom to make choices," Snyder said.
Again, people are free to choose to work somewhere else:
