Hugely Unpopular President Rips Massively Popular Governor For Allowing People to Work

Posted by on Mar 10, 2015 at 7:38 am

Whole lot of temper tantrums going on with Democrats these days.

President Obama took a shot at a “right to work” bill signed into law Monday by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a likely Republican candidate for president.

In a statement, which does not mention Walker by name, Obama said the “anti-worker law in Wisconsin will weaken, rather than strengthen workers in the new economy.”

So allowing workers the right not to be forced to pay union dues is now “anti-worker” or something. OK.

“Even as its governor claims victory over working Americans, I’d encourage him to try and score a victory for working Americans – by taking meaningful action to raise their wages and offer them the security of paid leave,” Obama said.

Nice strawman you got there, pal.

While Obama expressed opposition to the Walker’s legislation, his decision to single out the Wisconsin governor could elevate his profile among Republican primary voters as he moves closer to a presidential bid.

Thanks, Obama!

We have the lowest labor participation rate in 37 years, and Walker’s anti-worker. Got it.

He’d prefer government dependence.

    Pres’ economic policy has weakened what workers are left far more than right to work. Why else the push to raise minimum wage other than the fact that entry level jobs are in the majority of new jobs?

    The DemocRATs lost a whole lot of their slush fund when Scott Walker signed the Wisconsin right to work bill into law. That is what has Odildo all worked up. He was counting on that money to fund his Obamaesty project.
