Do GOP Senators Oppose Unions More Than Terrorism?
OK, Bush puts preventing unions before national security, fine. That's to be expected. Hideous, but expected.
But, as the aforelinked article mentions: "Thirty-six Republican senators sent a letter to Bush on Tuesday saying they would provide the needed votes to sustain a veto in the 100-member Senate."
36 GOP Senators are joining Bush in sacrificing national security just to spite labor. And who are these Senators (bold = up in 2008; italics = up in 2010)?
