If there is a way to outsource his job to China he will be much safer with Romney.

I completely agree with you submitter. The union has spent all the money meant for this healthcare and retirement this guy is farked. He's farked now, and he'll be farked after the election. But it was his own doing.

that's the genius of the republican party: getting people whose interests you oppose to vote for you without hesitation. it's stockholm syndrome and mass hypnosis combined.

Uh...you do know that the union only negotiates with the company about the workers' healthcare, right? The company actually pays for the healthcare, they don't give the union money to purchase it. But, you know, don't let reality get in the way of what you believe or whatever.

Lol, that's what you think. That's not what Romney says though. Romney says that the Unions are thugs trying to beat up the rich people trying to give me great jobs.

Alright sir, time to put your money where your mouth is. Swan dive off the highest building you can find, and your family can hope it wasn't all for naught.

Not even then. My mom retired from the same union that I'm in and they don't touch her pension or healthcare. It's managed by a third party.

Which perfectly demonstrates the kind of fanatical, irrational morons that vote Republican.

If you are rich vote for whoever you want, you'll keep getting richer. If you are working class become a socialist. Voting won't save you, class awareness will.

Right, and you have blind faith in the stereotypical two faced elitist politician to the point where you would equate committing suicide for a politician because it's going to be different this time.....some people never learn from their mistakes.

That's not fair, Romney doesn't actually have any policies. But a ton of his advisers were Bush advisers, so there's that.

Yeah but his skin would be used to upholster the buckets seats for a Cadillac to be given to a minority welfare recipient so it his life wouldn't be a complete waste.
