Pelosi thinks Boeing plant should be shut down if it doesn’t unionize

1 Nov


This is THE reason that you should never vote for a Democrat.  Period.  Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was asked a question by Maria Bartiromo about the role of government in business expansion. Should agencies like the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) have the authority to shut down private-sector plants simply for not being unionized? Her response?  “Yes.”

In an interview late last week, House Minority Leaeder Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told CNBC that Boeing should either unionize its production facilities in South Carolina, or shut them down entirely.

“Do you think it’s right that Boeing has to close down that plant in South Carolina because it’s non union?” asked host Maria Bartiromo. Pelosi’s reply: “Yes.”

The minority leader quickly added that she would rather it simply unionize and stay open. But barring unionization, by Pelosi’s reasoning, it should simply shut down.

Even though the workers at the South Carolina plant voted 199-68 to decertify their union, Pelosi think that they should be punished:

 Pelosi may or may not know that workers at the South Carolina plant in question voted resoundingly (199-68) to decertify their union two years ago. Government policies that would close the plant for being a non-union shop would simply be punishing those workers for exercising their right to determine union representation for themselves.

This is yet another example of an arrogant liberal who thinks it’s her role to make decisions that affect the lives of Americans, rather than letting them decide for themselves.  The workers at this plant decided overwhelmingly that they did not want to be unionized.  Now Pelosi and the Democrats want to punish them by shutting them down.  Can you imagine the reaction of Democrats and the liberal media if John Boehner said on national television that he thought the government should shut down a plant specifically because they tried to unionize their employees?  Their hair would be on fire and calls for him to step down would happen instantly.

It just further proves the point that Democrats don’t care about jobs unless they are jobs in sectors that support Democrats.  The message is clear…if you don’t unionize or try to diminish the power of existing unions, the Democrats will come after you.
