Letter: Union workers can’t blame Dems

I’m bemused that unionized public employees are upset with the mayor’s attempt to diminish union bargaining rights. Most union employees I know vote Republican because they have great pay and benefits and have been duped into believing that those “lazy non-working welfare and Medicaid bums” are the cause of America’s problems and a threat to their livelihoods.

Guess what, Bubbas? You’ve lost this one and you have no one to blame but yourselves. Next time you go to the polls try to remember which political party has always stood up for the working class men and women of this country. Clue: It isn’t the GOP.
