In recent days, organized labor turned harshly and vocally against the so called “Affordable Care Act.” Three leaders of America’s largest unions, including Jimmy Hoffa, wrote a jaw-dropping letter to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. Excerpts of their arguments sound like a Republican opposition brief:
Liberals offer permanent excuses for abuses: Everyone does it. Yet when you examine the record, not everyone does do it.
How, exactly, does a free people overthrow an abusive bureaucracy that, as David Axelrod asserts, is too vast for even the president to be aware of, let alone control?
Not too long ago, trashing George Bush was a Hillary-approved form of patriotic dissent. Back in the day, progressives and Move On types competed proudly and exuberantly to vocalize their Bush hate, all to the national media’s approving, saturation coverage.
