Last night, The Rachel Maddow show discussed why the Republicans are trying to bust the unions. Why would they trump up false crises all across the country and try to limit collective bargaining rights for state workers? They are trying to limit funding to the Democratic Party and eliminate the competition. This has nothing to to with jobs, the economy or balancing budgets (that the Republicans wrecked themselves). This has everything to do with establishing a single party system within the country.
In the second segment of the show, Rachel interviews a
Wisconsin State Senator who explains why he refused to show up to vote for the union-busting legislation.
