    This is of the utmost priority. If you never petitioned politicians before......this one is very very important
    Unless you like people working next to you who won't pay dues. Please fill out and circulate to everyone you know.
    With Majorities in House and Senate the republicans will pass this in a heartbeat. It's gonna take a lot of people filling stuff like this out to stop it.

    Maybe if the union would do their jobs and actually get a decent contract and enforce it then people would want to join.

    It will take 60 votes in Senate. Not going to happen.

    actually, since Harry Reid opened that can of worms to pass legislation that he wanted, the Republicans can pass with just a simple majority.

    Ahhh, no they can't. That was just for cabinet members and judges. The 60 vote margin still exists for legislation.

    Thank you, I stand corrected. However, the 2018 elections may give the Senate Republicans a filibuster proof majority, http://www.politico.com/story/2016/11/senate-democrats-2018-midterms-231516 or maybe McConnell goes nuclear and does away with the filibuster. One thing is for sure, if it hits Trump's desk, it's a done deal.

    As I said, don't sweat it. By 2018 things will be so screwed up, there will be little chance of a fillibuster proof majority.

    And the Senate rules won't change, because power ebbs and flows. Senators don't want to be reduced to congressman status.

    Historically, the party in power loses after it wins.

    Historically, Trump should never have been close to Hillary. Anybody see that zoo, also known as electing the next DNC chairman. They are going to go so far left Bernie Sanders is going to get a tingle up his leg. Ya'll be safe.

    Your statement contradicts itself.

    First off Sanders would have destroyed Trump(Democratic mistake to run Clinton). Second Trump won the antiquated electoral college. He only got 46% of vote. He is not a popular president with the majority of this country. So your point leads to really nothing. The presidency shines a light on the person in office, and Trump is a shallow, egomaniacal, spoiled rich kid. The office will crush him.

    coulda, woulda, shoulda, we'll never know. You sound like Perez and Ellison. The same old talking points and how has that worked out for you? Good luck.

    The truth is what it is, just because you can't handle it, isn't my problem.

    The truth is Trump was elected, all the rest is just opinion.
    -Sanders would have destroyed Trump(Democratic mistake to run Clinton)
    -Trump won the antiquated electoral college
    -Trump is a shallow, egomaniacal, spoiled rich kid. The office will crush him.
    You really need to let it go
    . It's a done deal.

    I don't think much of the man, though he is better than Ted Cruz. In fact he is better than all those who trashed him, but now kiss his ass.

    A little hung up on the statement, " Unless you like people working next to you who won't pay dues." The contractors that are hualing more freight than us are not paying dues. Union turns a blind eye, even when it's members are not working.

    Hall throught he would get them via LHD , but the company outsmarted him.
