Unfortunately, the politicians don't care what we think....

Walter Russell Mead's Blog:
"The report is on public attitudes toward unions, and it finds that despite the recession and the electoral swing to the left in 2008, unions have significantly less trust and support than ever before. The Pew data reinforces similar poll results from Gallup; support for unions this year was at its lowest level since Gallup first asked the question in 1936."
Public service unions are the beasts that will eat this country alive. Just look at what is going on in the EU and especially Greece. But the financial and vote getting assistance that they give to the Democratic Party and their candidates is a very potent drug that few pols can resist.
