    Default Poll Shows Growing Support for Right-to-Work Laws … Even Among Democrats

    This is quite disturbing! As I was reading this, I thought how right wingers are always yelling about entitlements. Well, exactly what do you call getting union benefits without belonging to a union and paying union dues for that representation???? I call that someone thinking they are entitled to such benefits!

    Vice President Biden delivered a fiery speech in support of unions at a Labor Day appearance in Detroit last week. But a recent Gallup poll painted a sobering picture for union backers.

    When asked if they would vote for right-to-work laws, 71 percent of Americans—and 65 percent of Democrats—said they would.
    “People may not have completely understood the question, but beyond that, I think [the Gallup poll] reflects the decreasing presence and powers of unions in the country,” said Joseph Slater, law professor and labor expert at the University of Toledo. “They haven’t gotten their message out to people who are skeptical of unions.”

    It goes to show how well the right wing propaganda machine is at twisting the truth as to what RTW laws actually mean.
    Low wages, less benefits, less real full time jobs.

    And what bothers me is all over the country the Republicans seem to be doing much better at raising campaign money to continue spreading their lies.

    What really bothers me is money in politics !
    Either Soros or the Koch's.
    Get back to representation of the people ... not the corporations.
    I have had enough propaganda forced at me. From both sides.
