    The war on the middle class is spreading like wildfire and now it's in New Hampshire. These governors/dictators are in for a rude awakening. Stay tuned for a middle class revolt. Coming soon to a town near you.

    Union workers have every right to rally peacefully.
    These workers may not realize that in the end they will damage our economic health more by rallying than they would help everybody by negotiating more reasonable salaries and benefits.

    Unions just aren't into balanced budgets and reducing deficits if they have to give up their elite, "it's my right" to make more than the average taxpayer status.

    The people of New Hampshire are now paying the price for voting in the party against Labor? If you are middleclass,and union,your in trouble. I just wonder when,the working class in this country will start to understand,vote gop and tea in office,you will be working under Ceo,s rulings,including wages. You get what they offer,or take unemployment! Go figure?

    The GOP is really setting themselves up for a nice let down come 2012 elections.
    The continued stance of being against the things that will help the little person out seems to constantly be kicked out by the GOP. I mean the GOP may frame this like it is the labor unions causing the problems when comes to workers and business, however let us not forget without the Unions general working conditions, salaries, and working hour standards would have never made it into law. So folks really need to be careful about how the GOP is framing this issue.
