Woah… Romney Refuses to Back Governor Kasich Against Government Unions
In March the Ohio Senate passed a bill that limited the powers of public employee unions. Radical leftists and union activists held several rallies against the measure.
Of course, the media never reported on the Kasich Hitler signs they were carrying.
Today in Ohio former Governor Mitt Romney would not support Governor Kasich on this hard fought legislative victory.
The Examiner reported:
Campaigning in Ohio today, Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney stopped by a Republican Party phone-bank making calls in support of Gov. John Kasich’s government union reform referendum, but refused to endorse the actual referendum. CNN’s Peter Hamby called the scene an “incredible moment in politics.”
…Kasich’s new law: 1) bans government unions from bargaining over health insurance, 2) requires that all government union members pay at least 10% of their wages toward their pensions, 3) ends seniority rights as the sole factor in layoffs, 4) replaces seniority pay raises with merit pay raises, 5) bans government unions from striking, and 6) makes government union dues voluntary. But government unions would still be able to bargain about many other topics including pay and working conditions…
…If Romney can’t endorse this common sense reform at the state level, why should conservatives believe he will fight against government unions at the federal level.
