Dem Michigan lawmaker threatens ‘there will be blood’ over right to work vote

Michigan’s Republican-controlled legislature passed two new laws Tuesday making it the 24th U.S. state with “right to work” laws in place for employees. Unions, in the once union-friendly state, may no longer make membership a requirement for employment in either the public or private sector.

Both measures passed last week in the Michigan Senate, and now all that is needed is the signature of Republican Gov. Rick Snyder which may come as soon as Wednesday.

The Washington Examiner reported that Democrat State Rep. Douglas Geiss threatened, “there will be blood, there will be repercussions,” if the legislation passed. Thousands of people both for and against the legislation converged on the Capitol building in Lansing early Tuesday morning.

    I applaud Govenor Snyder for having the balls to make tough decisions.The union is part of the problem with economy.Fabulous wages plus benefits causes everything to go up in price.My husband when he retired after 40yrs on the job was making 13 dollars an hr.But you know what we raised 4 kids plus a grandchild on that.But now it;s greed in the work force.

    What? No outrage by Obama, Democrats or the mainstream media at this "hate speech" designed to instigate violence? To quote Captain Renault in Casablanca: "I'm shocked, shocked…"
