Republican Senators as Union Busters, Our Anti-Social Democratic Legacy, and the Fruits of 'Pragmatic' Bi-Partisanship
I am not going to excuse the Auto execs who've been peddling giant gas guzzling vehicles. But let's be clear, the Republican Senators want to do in the U.A.W.; they want to level wages and benefits down. Not only is that bad for individual families, it is bad from the now consensual Keynesian view that we need spending to work our way out of the recession.
And let's be crystal clear ~ the opposition to the auto rescue plan last night was overwhelmingly Republican (according to the Washington Post 31 out of 35 opposed votes were Republicans). So much for bipartisan cooperation. Obama-ites take notice!
