Check out Blueprint for Victory: Republican Strategy for Breaking Unions

Check out Blueprint for Victory After Checking this out and view their web page, throw the trash out!!!!

What the Republican National Committee has authorized is Union busting and do what you will in the name of people.  And I do mean anything.

Consider this:  In Ohio The House passes tax break for oil, in spite of the pleadings of other industry groups. So you have to ask, How much do House GOP members love the petroleum industry?  So much so that they ignored the pleadings of several other industry groups opposed to a new tax break included in the transportation budget, which was passed by the Ohio House of Representatives today.  An amendment to remove the tax benefit and earmark the proceeds of the tax to public transit was defeated along party lines.

The letter signed by the Ohio Manufacturers’ Association, the Ohio Society of  CPA’s, the Ohio State Medical Association, and the Chemistry  Technology Council pleaded with House Speaker Batchelder to resist any attempts by special interests trying to get their product or service exempted from the Commercial Activity Tax [CAT].

They wrote:  As original proponents of the tax reform package in 2005, we have worked tirelessly to reiterate to lawmakers the importance of maintaining a broad-based tax code, with the lowest possible tax rate.

I can only say congratulations to the petroleum dealers.  There money was well spent. Their campaign donations paid off.

Consider this:  Foundry.org in an article this morning, the headline of which reads:  Government Unions Actually Campaign for Higher Taxes.  You must remember this is The RNC’s best friend.  Neoconservatives and the religious right.  Another article that the Foundry recommended:  Taxpayers Win in Wisconsin. This is the Wall Street Journal, owned by Rupert Murdock, the great unbiased newspaper and corporation in the entire world.  If I watched FOXnews, I would now be in intensive care.  Anyway, the article begins as follows:

Congratulations to Wisconsin Republicans, who held together this week to pass their government union reforms despite unprecedented acting out by Democrats and their union allies. Three weeks ago we described this battle as a foretaste of Greece come to America, but maybe there’s hope for taxpayers after all.

The good news is that Governor Scott Walkers’ reforms have been worth the fight on the policy merits.  The conventional media wisdom is that Mr Walker “overreached” by proposing limits on the ability of government unions to bargain collectively for benefits.

That neoconservatives and the religious right would compare the State of Wisconsin to a sovereign country Greece is ludicrous.  Backward Bachman tried to make the same analogy a few weeks ago and was laughed out of the room.  What the taxpayers won in Wisconsin is lower wages, higher cost for health benefits and disrespect.  But they voted for him and now they discovered that they along with other states that elected Republicans, were all lied to.  Just read the article at http://www.wjs.com.  Then throw out the trash.

Consider this:  Michigan bills to rein in Local Government.  What it really means is that they can dissolve local governments.  They can just fire anyone at will.  All for the greater good  The law expands state power over fiscally stressed local governments and gives emergency managers broader authority, including the ability to terminate labor contracts.  Under the law whole cities or school districts could be eliminated without any public participation or oversight and amendments designed to provide minimal safeguards and public involvement were voted down. According to the law, the governor will be able to declare “financial emergency” in towns or school districts and appoint someone to fire local elected officials, break contracts, seize and sell assets, and eliminate services.  Do we see a pattern here?  Eliminate unions.  Limit Democrats. They are manipulating concerns about budget difficulties to consolidate power by undermining unions.  It amounts to a takeover by the right-wing and it is an assault on democracy. What values, or the lack thereof, will guide these persons or firms as they work to balance budgets? How will a manager decide whether to sell off an ice rink or a library?  There is no real training, but you don’t really need education or training when all you want to do is fire everyone.

Their blueprint looks terrific, graphics are wonderful, they even talk a good game.  Still as you visit their website one of the most obvious, blatant signs is the donate now, help stop Obama and his union bosses.  The Blueprint for Victory is just a good Powerpoint presentation while their real purpose is union busting and convincing you to help them.

What Wisconsin has done is being copied in Ohio, Indiana and other states.  They may have won the battle in Wisconsin, but they will lose the war  They want to make you believe that the monopoly power of government unions can be broken.  They call it a rare victory for TAXPAYERS.
