VIDEO: Bachmann Booed On Right-To-Work

Boos rained down from the NH House gallery as Michele Bachmann touted right-to-work bill.

U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann won cheers and jeers today when she addressed the New Hampshire House of Representatives. Some Republican lawmakers in the chamber applauded her support for a right-to-work bill in the state.

Opponents in the House gallery booed and heckled her, including some profanity.

Bachmann was one of five Republican presidential candidates invited to speak. Gary Johnson, Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain, and Rick Santorum also took turns speaking to lawmakers.

3. My error, table 4, not table 3. You do have a funny way of reading statistics though. How about US Treasury stats – Bush increased the national debt by 75.2% in 8 years while Obama has increased it by 30.9% in just 30 months. See http://www.skymachines.com/US-National-Debt-Per-Capita-Percent-of-GDP-and-by-Presidental-Term.htm. I guess that's false too ! 4. Really don’t understand what your babbling about on this one??? 5. So, you say, calling Bush a “raving idiot” would be name calling but calling him “one of the most corrupt, fiscally irresponsible presidents….” is NOT name calling. Oh, I see. Sounds really logical to me. As with all name-calling liberals, you're very typical and predictable indeed.

Here is something nobody is thinking about re: Bachmann. When I was young I used to collect Bitsy Bears. Yes, Bitsy Bears. Here is a tad more info to put it in context: http://www.ghostofthedoll.co.uk/Toys_BitsyBears.htm

Both Bush and Obama support/supported foreign interventionism, endless war, massive foreign subsidies, corporate welfare, secret prisons, the destruction of civil liberties, massive domestic spending, and enormous deficits. They both want/wanted more power for the federal government, and less liberty for you and I. This is not a partisan issue.

"Right to work" is a misnomer. There is no right to work at someone else's business -- hiring should be by mutual consent. Thus, I oppose "right to work" for private businesses. If the owner wants to require union membership as a condition of employment, that's his right. I support "right to work" in the public sector, however, because funds are not aquired by government by voluntary trade or donation, but by coersion. It's no longer a voluntary arrangement, or a property rights issue. Furthermore, government in this case is the employer, so even if it were a voluntary operation, it'd be their right to make employment conditions (which might not include union membership). I wish more in the state house would recognize this distinction.
