Right wing tea partiers!
House lawmakers voted overwhelmingly last night to strip police officers, teachers, and other municipal employees of most of their rights to bargain over health care, saying the change would save millions of dollars for financially strapped cities and towns.
The 111-to-42 vote followed tougher measures to broadly eliminate collective bargaining rights for public employees in Ohio, Wisconsin, and other states. But unlike those efforts, the push in Massachusetts was led by Democrats who have traditionally stood with labor to oppose any reduction in workers’ rights.
Umm...wow that just totally wrecked the nutroot narrative.
Alternative headline of the day: a group of Democrats finally embraces fiscal responsibility.
Score: America 2, Union thugs 0.
