Right to Work — The Domino Effect

images[9]Lawmakers in states that formerly lacked the political will to openly bust unions with Right to Work laws are now lining-up like dominoes, emboldened by the Michigan lame duck legislative feeding frenzy that puked-up, among 300 hastily passed laws, a RTW bill that the spineless flip-flopping governor meekly signed into law, after saying he had no interest in that agenda.

A few days ago, Wisconsin threatened a new RTW push, citing Michigan as inspiration, and now Keystone State Rep. Jim Cox (R-ALEC) is sponsoring a package of bills that will push his Pennsylvania workers over that cliff. Americans for Prosperity is prepared to throw their full weight behind this, making the claim that RTW states have fared better in this economy — a fantasy assertion that is not borne out in reality.

“I Don’t Know What The Photo ID Law Says”

Pennsylvania Secretary of the Commonwealth Carole Aichele, testifying Tuesday during a state trial on the state’s controversial voter ID law, said she wasn’t sure about the details of the law, but stood by her unsupported claim that 99 percent of voters had valid identification.

…Aichele also couldn’t provide any evidence that 99 percent of voters already have a valid form of ID, as the state has claimed. CBS reported that when lawyers cited testimony from a Department of State official calling the number likely inaccurate, Aichele responded “I disagree.”

Aichele is a Republican. Her husband is Republican Gov. Tom Corbett’s chief of staff. Corbett was recently forced to admit that he had no clue what type of ID was now required to vote under the new law he recently signed.
