Excerpts:

Michigan voters issued a stinging rejection of state labor unions during Tuesday's elections, refusing to approve a single one of the ballot initiatives to which the big unions committed about $50million dollars in support.

The votes weren't even close, especially on labor's biggest target, Proposal 2, a constitutional amendment that would have given public sector labor unions unprecedented power and prohibited the future adoption of Right-to-Work legislation in Michigan.

...

All that appears to have changed since [UAW President Bob] King took the gamble on Proposal 2, a duplicitous act, which has now alienated [Michigan GOP Governor] Snyder and enraged a state business community that felt the amendment so threatened Michigan's economic future that they amassed their own $25 million advertising campaign to defeat the initiative.

Those same business leaders are now ready to throw their weight behind the RTW legislation that has been stalled in the Legislature thanks to Snyder's protection.


----

Time to take these unionistas down once and for all. This is economic war now.
