    The Democrats have been taking the union vote and money for granted for years while they pursue anti-labor policies in D.C.  It is the old Rahm Emmanuel philosophy in that unions can't go anywhere else during election time, so why bother to be responsive to the union movement's needs?  We got them in our back pocket, and if the try to complain,  they are "fucking retarded."

    Yeah, lack of money and support for Democrats leads to Republicans in office, but how else to get a Democrat's attention than with money?  It is a Catch 22 for unions, and I can't blame them for wanting to focus on membership drives than useless Democratic politicians.
