They speak with forked tongue

When you hear right wingers and teabaggers say that we need to get public employees benefits and pay in line with the private sector, remember that the pay and benefits of private sector workers was slashed so that corporations could make more profit. So what they're saying when they say the teachers and cops and firemen need to have a pay and benefit cut is that it's time public employees got screwed like private employees have been screwed over for the past thirty years.

It's bullshit. We need to honor our contracts with public employees. And we need to make corporations who screw their employees out of fair pay and benefits pay for their crimes against working people.

So true. Those same teabaggers always mourn about the 1950's as a great time. Yeah, buck-o - that was when a good union job paid a living wage, the rich paid a lot more in taxes, and corporation were just merely starting to own our politicians. Back when Americans had a little money in their pockets.

Well played, sir. Ohio's Republican Senate just stuck it deep into all the people we most rely on here - and twisted.
