Wonderful news for CA construction workers
I love watching the FoxNews people all up in arms as they actually explain, backwards of course, why this is a great bill Governor Jerry Brown signed.
Capitalist executive's lackey Stu Varney also explains why Obama has been so politically tone deaf because, had Obama really been able to connect the dots the way Varney claims, Obama would have supported the type of massive infrastructure spending people like Krugman and me have wanted from Day One of his presidency. Plus, he would have supported the labor law reform bill we have wanted to see passed in order to strengthen workers' rights nationally to form and maintain unions. The wealthiest would have seen their profits more equitably distributed among their workers, too.
Don't worry, Stu. Obama will continue to be politically tone deaf. He actually agrees more with you on economic matters than he agrees with Rich Trumka...
ADDENDUM: Young David Atkins at Digby's place nicely sums up the reason why Obama is tone deaf. He isn't stupid. He's just not that into workers and workers' economic interests.
