Why would Unions fear competition unless they have an inferior product!! Today unions are irrelevant; we have an assortment of Federal Departments/Agencies to address those same concerns unions had back in 50s/80s!! Liberals/Democrats would agree Intelligent individuals will make the Right Choice so what’s the Stink?

They get a free ride because the good folks have Michigan have spoken thru their elected lawmakers. It is the law. They are doing what the law says is illegal.

You're a horrible guesser Jane. I mean you REALLY suck at it.

Ann Coulter has never been correct in her life. Not once.
She doesn't even know what her own gender is.

Hey! I think I might have figured out Jane's underlying disorder: gender confusion.

You might find this interesting after that little rant.
According to NBC, an NBC/WSJ poll does show dems having a 10% less unfavorable edge over repubs about going over this cliff.
Hoever, the article goes on to point out that these numbers present the Obama White House with a dilemma.
Does it bend over backwards to get a deal or be willing to go off the cliff to make the Republican Party cry,“Uncle”?
The real tricky situation, according to NBC, is there is a good chance we will simply go from one fiscal cliff to another over the next few years which would be politically painful for the White House and delaying any other agenda in 2013.

..."politically painful for the White House"...
That has such a nice ring to it, don't you think?
Here's the article.

Republicans losing public opinion wars in "fiscal cliff" talks

WASHINGTON (Reuters)- Negotiations are expected to continue Thursday on the "fiscal cliff" with Republicans at a growing public opinion disadvantage and approval ratings for President Barack Obama rising to levels not seen since the killing of Osama bin Laden.

Senior Democratic Senator Kent Conrad of North Dakota said on MSNBC late Wednesday that he thought Obama and House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner were edging closer to a deal.

He added that he hoped something will be announced next week to avert the steep tax hikes and budget cuts set for the start of 2013.

Polling shows strong support for Obama's position. According to a Wall Street Journal/NBC survey released late Wednesday, three-quarters of Americans say they would accept raising taxes on the wealthy to avoid the cliff.

Among Republicans, some 61 percent say they would accept tax increases on high earners.

An ABC News-Washington Post poll released Tuesday indicted that nearly half of Americans approve of Obama's handling of the negotiations versus the quarter of respondents who approved of Boehner's.

At the same time, Obama's public opinion rating has reached about 54 percent in the Real Clear Politics polling average, above the level where it peaked in May 2011, when bin Laden was killed.

Republicans are in a bad negotiating position, Conrad said, noting that the Democratic-controlled Senate has already passed a bill preserving tax cuts for the middle-class, leaving the Republican-controlled House standing in the way.

"And so Republicans are really in an awkward position," he said.

Boehner, meanwhile, faces increasingly conflicting pressures, from the right to hold firm, from the Republican center to be flexible and from the polls to abandon his position.
