May I suggest to you MikeCPA, that being for unions and workers is not anti American. Nor is it Marxist, communist, or socialist. Matter of fact, it is American.
Unions didn't kill our economy, tax cuts for the rich, two unfunded wars, an unfunded medicare drug plan, and unregulated banking did. Michigan was helped along that path by incompetent management in the auto industry. Union concessions were inadequate in countering the effects on the auto industry of bad management.
May I suggest your reading list to include some Paul Krugman, and maybe less time spent listening to Glen Beck. That should be easier now.
