The socialists want big government and the taxes to go up along with it.

So they can continue to subsidize that socialist party uaw...

(who is the biggest tax free organization in Michigan)...

and all other unions as they are all tax free and pay no taxes whatsoever.

But it's the taxpayers who foot their bills and subsidize them.

Too Funny.

they have witnesses and got it on film all the UAW has done has damaged Chrysler's & FIAT's public Image and I look for Chrysler & FIAT to sue the UAW for Damages because of the conduct of their members.

John Deere UAW members in Iowa which is a RTW state make more than their UAW counterparts at DCX, Ford, & GM in Michigan because the UAW knows in a RTW state they have to earn those dues.
