What's liberal or progressive about supporting government unions? Why not oppose the conflict of interest as bad government? Why not understand that electing your own boss weakens government's ability to fulfill its mission? Why support government programs being crowded out to fund growing shares of tax revenues simply going to benefits and retirements? Why are the benefits so worth closing libraries?
What's liberal about it? How are you for working families, when many more working families are harmed by the taxes and curtailment of services that are caused by public unions? How come liberals can't separate in their heads being for unions, but being against public unions because of the conflict problem and the other issues of governance and crowding out?
Is this just some twisted liberal labor trickle down? Feed the government unions, have them live better than you, off of you, and you'll be better off later?
Why? What's liberal in any of it? Seriously, I don't get it.
PS... So far, not even close to an answer in any of your posts. Just Teabagger this or that, but no answers.
