Michigan: Same-sex Benefits Under Attack
While the ANTI-COLLECTIVISTS are stripping unions of collective bargaining rights, firing teachers throughout the nation, privatizing public education, now we see the ugly cultural underbelly of the extreme right wing: attacks on gays.
JUST A NOTE: ANTI-COLLECTIVISM is a John Birch Society principle. The JBT was co-founded by Charles Koch whose sons are the billionaire Koch brothers of Koch Industries who back the Tea Party and Americans for Prosperity and Freedom Works and the Mercatus Center. The JBT is well known for being anti-union, anti-civil rights, anti-welfare, anti-Social Security, anti-Medicare, anti-public education, anti-regulation, and anti-tax. They want to privatize everything and their corporate agenda is being played out right now in 16 states across our nation. Their aim is oligarchy.
When you hear Republicans state they want less government, they mean concentrating power in the hands of the few. And for the record, John Boehner recently stated: Americans are clueless.
The Detroit News reports:
The state Senate on Wednesday passed a concurrent resolution overturning a Civil Service Commission ruling that allows unrelated adults living with a state employee and their children to receive state-paid health benefits.
