FAUX "Opinion" is NOT "news".
Limbaughtomy "opinion" is NOT "news".
Teabaggers repeat them everyday.
And non Tea Baggers can't seem to refute the story--just insult the source.

They would fail. Producers produce. Unions produce nothing. All unions do is collect money.

I see your type on these threads all the time. You come on here and throw a quick insult because you have absolutely nothing of any value to say. You're afraid if you DO make an attempt at saying something with any "intellect", you'll be torn to shreds. It's easier to just throw an insult and not think beyond one or two sentences. You're a coward on here, but you're probably an even bigger coward in real life. Everybody knows anonymity make people brave. You're pathetic.
Idiot you have so much in common with that barefoot2626.

<quoted text>If CBO's Douglas Elmendorf's prediction. Yes prediction not confirmed fact.

If his prediction does come to fruition, you can rest assured those jobs will be filled thanks to market demand.
Probably at a lower profit margin for less greedy business owners.

It won't effect the worker much, if at all.
Most of them are already working for minimum wage already.
no they won't be filled. Jobs don't fall from the sky. And his prediction is coming true nitwit. It's already started bad even more. Many employers are also havering their hours slashed. Yes workers won't be effected much if you count losing their jobs and going on welfare counts as not effected much.

So... people with political ideas that aren't the same as yours are full of crap. We obviously have problems with this country that need to be solved. What do you propose? More of something that didn't work before?

The difference is you electively give your money to your bank. That's not what happens in taxation or unions in a non right to work state.

so if GM had went out of business then no worries. Other companies would have took their place. No problems for the workers. According to you.

It started with this line:

"We The People of the United States"

Check it out sometime, take note of the part where it said:

"We The People of the United States"
it then goes on to explain individuals rights.

You "electively" give your money to a bank? Just like you "electively" opt to own an automobile, a phone, a clean set of clothes... and utilities at your house. Give me a break.
