Ohio Legislature OKs collective bargaining limits
By ANN SANNER, Associated Press – 42 mins ago
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Labor stronghold Ohio assumed center stage Wednesday in the fight over collective bargaining rights for public workers as the state Legislature passed a bill that was in some ways tougher than that seen in Wisconsin and sent it to the governor.
Amid shouts and jeers in both chambers, the House passed a measure affecting 350,000 public workers on a 53-44 vote, and the Senate followed with a 17-16 vote of approval. Republican Gov. John Kasich will sign the bill by the end of the week.
Wis. GOP bullish in pressing union bargaining law
By SCOTT BAUER, Associated Press – 2 hrs 49 mins ago
MADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin's Republican leaders appear to be taking the same confident and bullish approach to implementing their divisive collective bargaining law that they took to passing it, suggesting they may ignore a judge's warning there would be consequences for moving ahead while challenges to the law are pending.
Yes Amurkkka, it's those damn workers who are backrupting this country. You people want too much. Healthcare? Pay for it yourselves. Living wages? Who's gonna pay for those wages? What do you expect for an honest days work?
Look, Exxon-Mobile didn't pay a single dime in taxes on their $19 billion profit last year. In fact, they got a $126million tax rebate. Bank of America got a $1.9billion tax rebate last year on their profits. We all know that GE, the largest corporation in the word didn't pay a dime in taxes last year and also got a rebate, so where do you workers think all the money for those wages and benefits you're soaking the gov't for is supposed to come from? Geez, you've become a greedy bunch. It's time to put the American workers in their place and show them that they can't keep getting small pay cuts and reduced benefits like they have for the past decade. They're going to have to start making REAL sacrifices. No more collective bargaining! Somebody has to pay for those tax breaks for the rich.
Oh, and remember that promise of Social Secirity you've always assumed? You know, that $680 check you thought you'd get every month after you turned 65? Well think again. The gov't can't keep giving away free money while the biggest corporations in America pay nothing and receive tax rebates. If the rich are going to keep their tax cuts, you sure as hell aint gonna get that big social secirity check you'd hoped and paid for or the healthcare or the wages you THINK you deserve.
You working people have GOT to quit bankrupting this nation. We have corporations to feed and rich people to keep happy, afterall, who's gonna pay your salaries if the rich run out of money?
And you know, this is exactly the rhetoric that a large percentage of Americans swallow whole every day. They put on their little teabagger hats and agree to everything the right wing corpo-fascist whore feed them. Why? Who the fuck knows? I guess they're just dumb fucks. Got a better explanation?
So eat up America. Suck down the lies and deceit you're being fed like a $5 back alley BJ whore. Let em fuck you in the ass till the blood pours from you like a pig at slaughter. Pay no attention to the ones getting tax break, paying no taxes and getting huge rebates. You keep paying your taxes on the wages that barely keep you alive and be grateful that they let you live. . . you stupid moronic fuck wads.
