WASHINGTON – As reported by the Huffington Post,
“With Tuesday night’s vote overturning the measure, the Obama administration and its allies were quick to offer statements of solidarity and support, and in one case, a bit of partisan taunting.
Jay Carney, the president’s press secretary, offered the following remark shortly after the Associated Press reported that Ohio voters rejected Issue 2, the ballot referendum on SB 5 that would restrict collective bargaining rights for more than than 360,000 public employees.”
It leads one to question the motivation of this administration. The largest union in the national is the Federal Government. The Carter Administration limited the collective bargaining rights in order to help save money.
With this move to back the Ohio voters, is the administration going to push for the save rights on the Federal Level. And if they do, can the country handle the possible additional expenses that it would incur?
