Unreal: Top Michigan Democrat Asks Obama To Withhold Federal Funding To Punish State For Passing Right-To-Work Legislation…Links added

Headline from Weaselzippers, story from Washington Times

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/dec/7/dems-look-obama-punish-michigan-over-labor-vote/

Senate Democratic Leader Gretchen Whitmer, who on Thursday called the votes to approve the right-to-work measure “petty and vindictive politics,” sparked more backlash Friday when she said she wants the president, who is set to visit Detroit on a previously scheduled political trip on Monday, to push back on Republican Gov. Rick Snyder by holding back federal money for a new international bridge project to Canada and a badly needed mass-transit program in ailing Detroit.

Recent interview of Gretchen Whitmer:

added note: In the interview Whitmer complains that the legislation is lame duck etc.  I think it was omitted that Michigan had just rejected an amendment proposal in the election that would have made Right to Work unconstitutional!  Had they won, this legislation would not have been possible, thus it makes sense to pass it ASAP.

Sound bytes on the radio news last night of Obama Speaking to a crowd were disturbing.   The Hot Air link has a 2 minute version at the top of the post. It’s less disturbing in context than hearing just out of the blue when radio is in background, but added links point out that the Wisconsin experience is likely to be repeated.
