Patrick Gleason wrote an op-ed for Forbes.com entitled “For a Model of Inequality, Look to Democratic Governors.”
“A look at the policies signed into law in recent years by Democrats who run some of the largest states in the union shows that unequal treatment is the name of the game when it comes to fiscal policy. Prominent Democratic governors, some of whom are 2016 contenders, have passed laws that raise taxes and costs for ordinary individuals, families, and small businesses, only to then exempt the politically-connected.”
Matt Patterson, Executive Director of the Center for Worker Freedom, wrote an op-ed for The Daily Caller entitled “The UAW targets Tennessee, with an assist from the NLRB.”
“Late last week the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) dismissed complaints from Chattanooga VW workers that the union had illegally used misrepresentation to gain signatures on union authorization cards.
After the NLRB news broke, word spread like wildfire in the community that the long-threatened union election was imminent. Union officials would love for the process to unfold quickly — they don’t want pro-company employees to have the time to make their case to coworkers — and Obama’s NLRB is falling over itself to oblige.”
Matt Patterson was featured in an article by Steven Greenhouse of the New York Times entitled “Outsiders, Not Auto Plant, Battle U.A.W. in Tennessee.”
“Matt Patterson, who heads the new Center for Worker Freedom, an arm of Mr. Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform, has promoted an anti-union agenda here, writing opinion articles and forming an anti-union coalition. “When the cost of government goes up, Americans for Tax Reform isn’t happy about it,” he said. “Unions are a big driver of government. Unions are very political, the U.A.W. is one of the most political. If they help elect politicians who pass huge government programs, that requires taxes.””
Tuesday night Grover Norquist appeared on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360. Grover Norquist joined a panel that included Paul Krugman and Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Mayor of Baltimore, where they gave their insight on the State of the Union address.
