Why aren’t Dems pushing the line that the economic downturn is a financial disaster every bit as harmful as a natural disaster and therefore financial aid to the states is a form of disaster relief?
If right-to-work is such a great economic benefit and job creator, why do 9 of the 22 right-to-work states have higher

High CEO pay is justified by saying that companies have to offer high pay to attract talent. Yet the same people that make that argument also argue that public sector workers are overpaid. If you put those two arguments together then you have to accept that people who claim public sector workers are overpaid really want to attract less qualified people for those jobs.

What do you have to say?
