If having a Progressive Socialist Government and Labor Unions control the city, county and state government budgets vs allowing the voters to control them, then why are "Socialist / Union Controlled States" like CA, NY, PA, NJ, OH, MI. MN, WI, IL, MD BANKRUPT today? These States have been under the control of the Unions and Progressive Socialists for 30+ years. So why do we want Congress to follow this path?
The Progressives failed at expanding into the Private Sector because workers realized that the Unions were killing American jobs, not supporting them. Every major industrial city was taken over by the Labor Unions from 1930 through 1985. The Unions moved in an took over the city, county and state governments. They supported increased union labor and litigation, followed by government taxes to pay for higher government union costs. These higher taxes and litigation costs have closed down entire industries in America and pushed jobs off shore.
Today, the Unions control only 7% of the private sector labor force. Since about 1965, the Labor Unions saw this as a risk. So since then, they have moved across the country taking over city, county and state governments in order to pass and control laws that are favorable for Unions and Anti-Business. Their solution is to continue to expand Class and Race Wars in order to expand hate in the local communities. The is followed by again higher taxes as the Labor Unions expand control over the local government, followed by control over the Federal government. If you object, then the Labor Unions personally and yes, even physically attack you. The Labor Unions and Socialist Party has a long term documented history of physical violence and damage to private property against anyone who openly opposes them. This is so well documented, that the unions do not even try to deny it today.
