Are Republicans the party of working Americans? Of course not.

Do some people continue to believe that they are? For some reason, yes.

Well, the latest legislative push by the GOP should leave little doubt in anyone's mind that the party puts profits over people.

The Washington Examiner reports:

"Republicans in Congress plan to introduce legislation [today] that would prohibit workers nationwide from being forced to support a union.

The national right-to-work legislation likely would be a major blow to organized labor because it would allow millions of workers to opt out of union membership for the first time.

Reps. Joe Wilson of South Carolina and Steve King of Iowa are sponsoring the legislation, which would amend the National Labor Relations Act and the Railway Labor Act to prohibit what unions call 'security clauses.' These are provisions that permit union-management contracts that require all employees to join a union or pay one a regular fee as a condition of employment."
