The New Year has brought the so-called "right-to-work" movement back to the forefront of politics here in Indiana. We gave our two cents HERE and took some pleasure in the NFL Players Association registering there opposition HERE. That said, not all members of this state's GOP are going along without asking some questions. AP reports via Yahoo:
"A conservative state senator is expressing skepticism about the right-to-work bill under consideration by an Indiana legislative committee.
Republican Sen. Brent Waltz of Greenwood asked the president of the Oklahoma chamber of commerce whether the energy industry had a greater impact on that state's economic health than its adoption of a right-to-work law in 2001. Waltz says he wasn't convinced about the law's economic sway."
Thank you, Sen. Waltz. We hope you are sufficiently steeled for blow-back. Having broken with your party's irrational orthodoxy, it's definitely coming.
