Many working families are enjoying the American dream without the benefit of being a union member. It is a very personal preference. The broad statement that it works for all or some or any is forcing one views on others. Let us be open minded. also, it is 2013. times have changed.......

The only reporting that keeps fading union hopes alive is by Mr. Lofton. Pick your analogy; the toothpaste is out of the tube, the cat is out of the bag, the milk has been spilled. Union effectiveness has waned and will continue to wane. Heck even Obama wanted to throw them under the ACA bus. Even as a political pawn unions are losing power.

Republicans are doing all they can to destroy unions. The GOP hates the working man. Only 2 types of people vote GOP: Millionaires and suckers.

there is truly no such thing as a bas union, a bad corporation or a bad government. it's just the people who run them.

Do you pray at the altar of Reid and Pelosi to drown future generations in debt by raising the credit card limit yet again? Dr. Obama wants you to bend over: "This is going to hurt a little" Be careful what you ask for...

Promo61 needs a grammar lesson. The first person singular nominative case personal pronoun (I) used to refer to one's self is capitalized.

Why are liberals so liberal with the "h" word? I see it in their posts so often I think I'm reading Obamas book.

The media keep asking what Republicans have learned from the debacle they created, but the more interesting question is what the rest of us have learned. The answer is: We have to take back the House of Representatives in 2014, and keep Republicans the minority in the Senate. Some of you continue to believe there's no difference between the two parties, and I agree Democrats are too dependent on big money and therefore often too reluctant to support necessary reforms like single payer, major cuts in the military, a resurrected Glass-Steagall, limits on the size of the biggest Wall Street banks, a living wage, card-check for unionization, higher tax rates on the wealthy, and elimination of the ceiling on income subject to Social Security taxes. But I don't subscribe to the false equivalency between the two parties. The Republican Party has become the party of the powerful, privileged, prejudiced, and paranoid. They are incapable and undeserving of governing this great nation. - Reich
