Thanks for posting this !! There needs to be many more gutsy, truth speakers like Kucinich and I'll add Bernie Sanders to that list, who aren't afraid to call out those who would take away the rights and benifits of the fading American middle class. It was the Unions who helped us get the middle class rights and benifits, you can bet the mine owners and the corps wouldn't have given us what we had in the sixties and seventies on their own.
Watch the Unions and the middle class as a whole come out swinging from what these repubs are doing to collective bargaining, watch it backfire on them, and watch many repubs turn against some of these corporatist politicians for taking things too far right and against the middle class interests. The pendulum will swing back toward the left in 2012 because the repubs can only fool the public against their own interests for so long, and they've reached that point if you ask me. Unions will probably gain membership now and come out in force for Dems.
