Republicans Hate Unions

Listening to Mitch McConnell and Richard Shelby, I realized that the GOP hates unions. No big surprise there, but the extent of their hatred for unions, and consequently, the Big 3, astounds me. Are they so opposed to unionization that they're willing to see 3 million jobs go down the shitter? Apparently so.

Funny also how Shelby's home state of Alabama has non-union automobile factories owned by Honda, Toyota, Hyundai, and Mercedes-Benz. Alabama has given hundreds of millions of dollars in "incentives" to these manufacturers to persuade them to build their factories in the state. Do you think that McConnell and Shelby might have interests that are more parochial than national at heart?
