I’m posting live from Disney. Just realized the bastards don’t have FoxNews on their channel list.
However, in other interesting news….
Twenty-nine percent of likely voters would blame Democrats for a government shutdown, compared to 23 percent who would hold Republicans responsible, according to a new poll conducted for The Hill.
Whoops! THAT wasn’t expected.
The results are surprising because most people blamed the GOP for the last government shutdown, which occurred during President Clinton’s first term. A week before the 1995 shuttering, polls showed the public blamed Republicans by a two-to-one-margin.
Even more important than the money unions give directly to candidates, the Senate leader said, is the cash the unions spend on their own buying TV and radio ads in support of Democrats. By his count, Fitzgerald said the Wisconsin Education Association Council, the state teachers union, dropped nearly $1.6 million in independent spending in four Senate races last fall.
In addition, two national unions – AFSCME and the Service Employees International Union – gave more than $1.3 million since 2008 to the Greater Wisconsin Committee, a liberal group that advocates on behalf of Democratic candidates.
And while corporations tend to give in rather equal amounts, Unions give upwards of 94-100% to Democrats.
Labor strife continues to captivate the nation as Democrat lawmakers in Wisconsin are hiding out. Similar actions have taken place in Indiana with their Democrat lawmakers heading to Illinois as well. Votes are either underway or are being considered in a number of other states.
