1. We'll see

I don't trust the Republicans as far as I could throw the Mackinaw Bridge.

2. Logic?

So they don't want more money? I'm pretty revenue is increased through people working, and they want to stop people having a right to work, a right to essentially increase revenue for businesses and more money for their masters.......conservative logic.

3. You apparently misunderstand the issue.

(although you appear to be missing some words so its hard to tell)

right to work = measures to undermine union negotiating power.


These are businessmen who do not want to see the unions weakened. Why? Reduced union wages means less discretionary spending by working families and that would impact sales.
