Carol Platt Liebau: A Cheer for The LA Times

A Cheer for The LA Times

Wonder of wonder, miracle of miracles: The LA Times has endorsed Proposition 75, paycheck protection for union members.

We support this more narrowly tailored initiative primarily as a means of lessening the power of public employee unions in Sacramento, but also as a way of reinforcing the right of union members to insist that their hard-earned income not be diverted to political causes they don't endorse.

This should apply to corporarations that force (yes..force) their employees to give to certain PACs. (I know this first hand...)

Why Republicans hate people who actually work, I have not a clue.

Republicans love people who work: that's why we try to reduce both their taxes and the amount of government paperwork in their small businesses and why, through Prop. 75, we're trying to insure their hard earned money is only used for political campaigns with their consent.

well, we know cookie jill is a cracker. Wouldn't it be better just to raise taxes on all of us who DO work so that those that don't work can continue to form liberal gangs of protesters? Luckily, my experience is I've only been asked for voluntary contributions to PACs. I always say "no", I'm informed enough to make my own contribution decisions.
