Mitch Danials & Adolph Hitler ~ Lot`s in Common ~ You Bet`Cha !


Indiana Governor Says Public-Sector Unions Shouldn’t Exist: Anti-worker Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels told Fox News last week that public-sector unions should disappear entirely.
"I think government works better without them, I really do," Daniels told Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday. "There's a reason that defenders of labor ... always said that unionism had no place in the public sector, that it was necessary freedom, and it is, in the private sector. But that it was a bad idea in government," he added.

Upon taking office in 2005, Daniels signed an executive order eliminating collective bargaining rights for government employees. This led to lower salaries, pay freezes in some years, and outsourcing of government operations to private companies. Health insurance premiums for many went up nearly 200%. Workers who had 20-30 years on the job with higher pay were fired. One union local saw their membership vanish from 260 to 12 as workers were scared that management would know they paid union dues. Daniels himself said after he banned collective bargaining, union membership for state workers dropped by 90 percent. Earlier this year he signed a law making Indiana the right-to-work-for-less state.
Before becoming governor, Daniels led the Bush fiscal policy as director of the Office of Management and Budget under the Bush administration. Instead of using the Clinton surplus to pay off the national debt that he claims worries him so much today, he purposely created the massive deficits and drastically added to the national debt by irresponsibly giving tax cuts – not paying for two wars and not paying the Medicare drug program. His deregulation push helped to undermine oversight of Wall St. banks, which we know created the financial collapse. He is one of the key architects of our recession, massive deficits and debt. Then he goes to Indiana where he blames public employees and unions for the economic mess he helped create. If he were being honest, he would have blamed himself. He is typical of the duplicity of the right wing that is trying to divide the middle class to hide their agenda. Today the media reports he was just rewarded for his duplicity and divisive tactics by being named as the President of Purdue University. As head of OMB, which oversees the federal government’s sourcing policy, Daniels also pushed to review almost one million jobs for privatization under an OMB Circular A-76 process that he re-wrote to favor contractors. He also pushed for direct conversions and strongly opposed any insourcing. Before his stint at OMB, Daniels was senior vice president of Indiana's largest corporation – pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly, which in 2009 was
ordered to pay $1.4 billion to settle criminal and civil allegations after pleading guilty to promoting its anti-psychotic drug Zyprexa for uses not approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Another anti-worker governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin took a page from Daniels when he pushed a law to strip government workers of their collective bargaining rights. In fact, Walker said Daniels was his “model.”
