New Hampshire House reps are getting the treatment from the unions and their lackeys on the plan to repeal the state's Evergreed law. I'm sure they have a script provided by the unions, which includes a promise not to vote for that State Representative if they dare repeal the law.
(That's actually 'evergreen' by the way, as in more of your green to the unions for 'ever,' but my spelling is more apt.)
So how stupid is that?
How many Republican New Hampshire House reps will actually believe that a union member voted for them in the first place? Not to many. So let's call those threats idle and get to the point.
The Evergreed law screws taxpayers. It gives automatic wage and benefit increases based on the last approved contract removing any incentive on the part of the unions to negotiate in good faith with a town or city unless it thinks or knows it can do better than the contract it already has.
So even in a recession when incomes and investment values, home values, and even the number of employed are all in decline, state union employees can continue to get wage increases and better benefits while you as taxpayers have to pay for those increases from a diminishing pool of fiscal resources.
It's evil. It's cruel. And it's going away.
And only a democrat or a RINO would support a law that screws taxpayers like that.
