It isn't who is in the White House, it's who controls each house of Congress. Poor George had democratic socialists controlling both houses while he was President. The Michigan issue has nothing to do with workers, worker rights, collective bargaining, etc.. The only issue is whether or not union dues can be collected and distributed to the democratic/socialist party. For those of you that disagree with Right to Work, image your $50/month was going to Sarah Palin's political action committee. Wow, you'd go balistic. Well, half of current union members are watching 90%+ of their union dues going to the democratic party, who by the way, supports laws, policies, and practices that will eventually eliminate their job.

The House and Senate each passed bills on the same day they were introduced that give private and public sector workers...
