Right2WorkCommittee – Rush Limbaugh blasts “moronic Republicans” for going along with another Harry Reid Big Labor gift of federally mandated forced unionism on state and local workers; specifically the Police Fire Forced Unionism bills in the Senate (S. 3194 & S. 1611) and in the U.S. House (H.R. 413).  (Tell Congress No: http://goo.gl/GGvi)

The following is a partial transcript:

Let’s take a look at things here, Obama and his party, with some moronic Republicans (there are six or seven Republicans going along with this), are tempting to expand public sector unionism by imposing it on states and municipalities…

Chris Christie is in the middle of this in New Jersey. He is beating these people back. In the process of trying to clean his state up, here comes the Democrats, Obama and six Republicans. Despite all of these unfunded pensions and healthcare benefits, the taxpayers are going to, one day, have to deal with, in the public sector. Now, they are going to expand and impose, actually, They are going to demand they unionize it. Just demand it. There are six or seven Republicans going along with it.

You look. Look at the courage of New Jersey Governor Christie. He is having to battle these public sector unions because they have substantially contributed to the financial demise of his state, yet the federal Senate and at least six Republicans want to impose on states that do not follow these irresponsible practices. Under what constitutional authority? Under what logic should this be tolerated? It is absurd.

Rush, WaPo Agree: NO on Big Labor’s Bill – Forced Unionism

This week, the Wall Street Journal confirmed what our sources in the Senate already told us: that Harry Reid could try to ram through the Police and Firefighters Monopoly Bargaining Bill (S. 3194) any day.

Rarely do Rush Limbaugh and the normally pro-forced unionism Washington Post editorial board agree, but both recognize the dangers of this brazen union boss power grab.

On his nationally syndicated radio show on Thursday, Rush declared that “some moronic Republicans (there are six or seven Republicans going along with this), are attempting to expand public sector unionism by imposing it on states and municipalities that have not permitted their civil service public employees to unionize.”

“Under what constitutional authority? Under what logic should this be tolerated? It is absurd.”

Listen to the full clip on the National Right to Work Committee’s YouTube channel.

Meanwhile, the editors the Washington Post — customarily apologists for Big Labor — agreed that “Congress should let states handle their own labor relations.”

The editorial is worth reading in full and sharing with other concerned citizens.

Big Labor is demanding a vote on this dangerous bill, and Harry Reid is happy to oblige as soon as this week. Republican Senators Judd Gregg (NH), Susan Collins (ME), Olympia Snowe (ME), Lisa Murkowski (AK), and Mike Johanns (NE) may also kowtow to the union boss.

We’ll continue to keep you updated on the latest developments.

Sincerely,
