MI Gov Flips On Right-To-Work; Message To Wisconsin

Beware of GOP governors who say they're not interested in punitive, restrictive limitations on rights, then do the opposite when they have legislative majorities.

Michigan Republicans approve right to work amid protests

Wisconsin relevance? Walker's game with ending voting day registration, step-child to Voter ID:
...cue Walker's unconvincing back-pedaling:
Walker said Wednesday he still supports the measure, but downplayed it and said opponents had turned it into a "ridiculous issue.
But that didn't stop two of his most slavish lieutenants, State Rep. Joel Kleefisch and State Sen.Albert Darling from fashioning a bill and looking for sponsors, pronto.
And remember when Walker said right-to-work wasn't a priority for him?

In my unsuccessful campaign for the Assembly, I warned that the GOP would push right to work. Of course the nonexistent media coverage meant most people in my district have no idea what's coming.

Not only do most people not realize what is coming, they have no idea what it means.

The RIGHT TO WORK. What could be wrong with that? Isn't it like the right to free speech, or the right to vote?

And interesting how the Walker Administration is all about limiting the right to vote and the right to free speech, isn't it?

What these bills really are is allowing the 'right to FREELOAD', and enshrining 'divide and conquer' on people who have been getting the shaft for the last 30 years. We need ads with Walker and Hendricks NOW.

Right To WOrk is up soon in WI, the tea party on twitter are already chattering about it. Does he have the votes to get it through the Senate?
