First of all, why don't we look at "our" team, you know, those that are not union controlled and pay taxes. We have a RIGHT to complain about how and where our taxes are used. We have no problem with supporting the old and disabled. We have no problem supporting those that have fallen upon hard times but are still wanting to be productive to society. We have NO problem supporting our military. And we are proud to support small business. What we do not like is supporting those that should and could be supporting themselves. We do not like our taxes going to support the lifestyles of others. We do not like supporting those that break our laws. We do not like supporting the extravagance of unions and their forceful ways. Etc. etc.

President Obama is scheduled to meet with labor and progressive leaders today at the White House to discuss the fiscal cliff and overall economic strategy moving into his second term. The meeting will take place behind closed doors and the press isn't invited. Exactly who will be there?
