What the hell is going on with the Southern Republicans? Are they on the take from the foreign auto manufacturers who have plants in thier states? We know conservatives do not have any respect for the working people of America and really hate organized workers, but come on now. This is our economy at stake. Did GM not contribute enough? Are these Senators trying to eliminate the competition for the auto plants in thier states?
The fact they are putting the blame on the union for the decisions of management and want the workers to take deep cuts in benefits and wages to match the "right to work" states of the south, tells me that the Senators of the South are still in the pockets of business. Don't they realize that the reason America rejects conservatism is actions like those of the Southern Republicans?
Plants in the south get tax breaks. They had land donated, cleared and utilities installed at no charg. Toyota, Hundai, Mercedes and Honda all received millions from the states where they are doing business, and most of that cash was subsidised by the federal government. Now that American manufacturers need help, the Southern republicans say, "no way"? Why? Is it because they are American companies?
It is all to obvious that the Repulicans are still playing politics with a complete disregard for the United States and the well being of our economy and citizens. The conservatives are more focused on punishing unions for supporting the Democratic party and have no problem bankrupting the country to satisfy thier revenge.
America has had enough of the conservative antics. Most of the country sent them packing, and it's too bad the South continues to be hoodwinked by these monsters. God willing, we'll get the rest of them out next round of elections.
Locally. Heavy rains have eliminated the commute for most of the week. Monday? We'll see.
