Republicans are up to their dirty tactics again. This time, they are out to bust the unions. During their Republican Governors' Conference, they set the agenda. Bust the Unions. Why? Traditionally, Union Members tend to be Democrats. By busting the Unions, this is their way of disrupting votes for the 2012 elections. We are seeing their Union Busting agenda in action right now in Wisconsin. They are targetting the Teachers' Union and other Government Worker bargaining units. We all know Teacher's traditionally have low pay, but they do have good benefits, thanks to the unions. Republicans are also attacking Teachers' pensions. Can you imagine how the teachers in Wisconsin feel right now? They've given their lives dedicated to educating our children for little pay. Now the Big Business supporting Rethuglican Governor Walker and his cohorts are after Teachers' pensions and health insurance.
The Gov. says he is attempting to Destroy the Union because of the impact on Wisconsin's economy. However, Wisconsin Fiscal Bureau disagrees. They said the "Current Budget Shortfall Is A Direct Result" Of Governor Walker's Tax Cut (for Big Business) Policies.
Meanwhile, the Rethug Women Haters in Congress are attempting to demolish Planned Parenthood. Nevermind that the Government has NOT funded abortions in decades. Nevermind a FAKE Video by James O'Keefe's protege Lila Rose has been proven to be a blatant lie. Nevermind that Planned Parenthood helps women by providing birthcontrol and health assistance. The Republicans don't like Planned Parenthood and their plan is to Demolish it! Such a Blatant attack against women!
Republicans are such an engima. Their 1st goal after the 2010 election was to EXTEND the Tax Cuts for the Rich! That accomplished, their next goal (per Mitch McConnell) is to Defeat President Obama in the 2012 election. Their plan is to destroy the Unions, demolish Planned Parenthood, Eliminate Entitlements including: Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. They also want to privatize Education. They want to shut down the Government and not extend the budget in March.
They say they are Pro-Life, yet they support the Death Penalty and advocate the use of weapons of terror - open carry - assault weapons and ammo.
They say they are for an improved economy, yet their first agenda is to extend tax cuts for the rich.
They say they are for the middle class, yet they aim to eliminate regulations and safety standards. They want to eliminate/cap our right to sue when we are harmed by dangerous products.
They say they want all Americans to have access to Healthcare, but they want to eliminate the Healthcare bill which includes eliminating the Pre-Existing Conditions clause. They advocate privatizing Medicare and all Healthcare. No restrictions.
Many in their groups advocate Mass Deportation of the 12M here and Racial Profiling ala bills like sb1070.
They do not believe in multi-culturalism. They do not believe in Freedom of Religion for all or equality for all. Instead they wail: "I want my country back...from a Black President."
Republicans.....how can any rational, logical person ever, ever vote for them??
