Arlen Specter is a lying piece of crap! As a republican, he opposed the awful Card-Check Bill which would swell membership in labor unions in every state, effectively handing the democrat party an endless supply of money and thug-enforced votes in every election. (In case you live under a rock and aren't familiar with this bill, Card-Check would remove the private ballot from unionization voting so that burly, mouth-breathing, union thugs will be looking over your shoulder as you vote whether or not to unionize your workplace.)
Specter was against this bill when he was a republican but, now that he's a democrat, he seems to have left the door open to being turned around. What a dispicable, worthless traitor he is!
Look for Obama to fast-track Card-Check before the midterms so they won't have to count on Specter winning to get enough votes to cram it down our throats.
That's all the country needs right now is more lazy, shiftless, union bums doing as little as possible on the job while demanding that their employer pay them far more than they are worth. Did we learn nothing from the auto-maker disaster?
It is bizarre that Obama professes to be working on the economy 24/7 to re-establish the American dream for every American, blah, blah, blah. But every step he takes does exactly the opposite. The banking bailouts, porkulus spending, arbitrary cancellation of GM bond-holder contracts, cap-and-trade, coal-plant construction moratoria, higher taxes, onerous regulations, all depress the economy by raising the costs of living, causing people to worry and stop spending money. Do we really need to hamstring our companies further by making it easy for unions to extort undeserved money from them? Thanks a lot Benedict Arlen.
