Let's face it, the middle class is loosing the power struggle with conservatives. Republicans and conservative Democrats have long been enacting policies that hurt and diminish the influence of Americas strong post war middle. North Carolinian's are told our lack of unions protects us, yet tens of thousands of our jobs have been exported to even more low wage, low regulation territories. Now the NCAE has been punished for supporting "progressive" causes. It will not be enough to return the teachers automatic dues payment. I support restoring hope to all North Carolina families by eliminating our regressive Right to Work legislation. All workers deserve an opportunity for an improved future, our new economy will not satisfy the people until this is true. Unions have done this in the past and deserve a role in returning power to the middle class.
Election 2010 is now officially underway, as the US Senate and the US House of Representatives adjourned this week for the August recess. It is hardly surprising given the current economic and financial market news that the top national issue for the fall is how to deal with the US economy and the federal deficit.

this bikini shaped chart of job losses and job growth is stunning.
I am a yellow dog Democrat, even before I see the charts. But I would think a few Republicans who are earnest and open minded, would have to scratch their heads. What is fiscally conservative and productive about the Republican regimes?
