You now have the right-to-work-FOR-LESS in Indiana

Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels took his state backwards on Wednesday – signing legislation to make Indiana the 23rd “right-to-work” state in the nation.  It’s the first state in ten years to go right-to-work and also the first state in the nation’s manufacturing belt to adopt a right-to-work law, which starves labor unions of much-needed funding.

So what can workers in Indiana expect now?  First off – lower wages.&nbsp

Mitt Romney say's he's “not concerned with the very poor?”

No surprises - Mitt Romney won the Florida primary last night by 15 points over Newt Gingrich.  The Romney campaign – with the help of SuperPACs funded by Wall Street billionaires – carpet-bombed the state with TV ads – airing 13,000 TV ads, compared to Newt Gingrich who only aired 200.

Multi-millionaire lobbyist Grover Norquist is calling for the impeachment of President Obama.  In an interview with the right-wing National Journal – Norquist warned that if President Obama wins re-election and decides to let the Bush tax cuts for the top 2% expire at the end of the year – then Republicans will “have enough votes in the Senate in 2014 to impeach [him].”

An Impartial Judiciary is now just a Myth...

According to a survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation – 75% of Americans believe the Supreme Court is driven by ideological views rather than objective legal analysis.  Of course – the justices themselves have done one heck of a job advancing this notion.  Scalia, Alito, and Thomas have attended and spoken at right-wing gatherings – gone hunting with prominent Republicans like Dick Cheney – accepted gifts from right-wing or
