It’s amazing that this President doesn’t seem to ‘grow’ into his new job.

If Trump kills “agency shop” union power will desolve overnight.

If you’re addressing (lack of) conformance to GOPe, Democrat, and Leftist ideology in particular, he sure doesn’t.

He has a clear vision what it takes to clean up this mess.

Couldn’t have done a better job myself.

Even that Commie Franklin Delano Roosevelt was against public sector unions.

They should be abolished, but this is a good start.

Just on the back of his Jerusalem decision, he tosses this out.

Wow.

It’s almost like he thinks it’ll get buried in all the hoopla over Israel vs the Arabs on the West Bank and in Gaza.

I’ve never seen a guy on our team address almost every single thing that has been on my mind for decades.

If he took on the Universities,... wow.

Although I generally loathe and despise unions, the feds have no constitutional authority to regulate states here. The feds need to butt out. This is an issue of constitutionally sovereign states not a federal issue.

“If Trump kills “agency shop” union power will desolve overnight.”

Union closed shops are not allowed in Indiana.

In the 8 years since this law passed, the amount of Teachers in the Indianapolis Public Schools union dropped to “less than 10%” last year, from 100% 8 years ago.

“Fair Share” is one of the most odious inventions of the 20th century.

Public employees are forced to pay exhorbitant dues to unions which are in bed with administration/management.

The unions have no incentive to straighten up and fly right because they are ensured of their “fair share” through payroll deductions.

What a scam!
