10. Yeah never understood FL. Lots of immigrants, lots on Social Security or defined private pensions.

 



You'd think these people would understand the GOP is after them and their benefits.

Of course here in WV we voted in a republican legislature for the first time in 60 or 80 years last election and one of their first actions was to eliminate prevailing wage for unions, and limit people's ability to sue coal companies when they are injured on the job.

The construction workers and miners turned out at the legislature, some what hurt and confused by the fact that the guys they elected to fight against the so called "war on coal" and to protect their guns were more interested in cutting their salaries and weakening protections in the work place.
