Kansas House Republicans on the Commerce Committee on Thursday, February 18, passed out a bill that would restrict the fundamental constitutional rights of public employees from engaging in political speech. Likewise important, the bill would prohibit voluntary automatic dues deductions for the purpose of engaging in a free democracy.
The bill, House Bill 2130, passed out of House Committee on a party line vote.
Much like our friends in Wisconsin, Ohio and Indiana, we are facing the same basic strategy from our opposition
STEP 1 – SILENT THE OPPOSITION
STEP 2 – TAKE AWAY YOUR RIGHT TO BARGAIN
STEP 3 – CUT YOUR WAGES AND BENEFITS
STEP 4 – FIND SOMEONE WHO WILL DO YOUR JOB FOR LESS THAN YOU WILL
This legislation is on the House floor tomorrow (Wednesday, February 23, 2011)! Act now and contact your state representative. Tell them to get off your back and out of your paycheck!
These legislators are undecided. Call and e-mail them and urge them to keep government off our backs! Tell them you know how best to spend your own paycheck!
