We have been shouting from the rafters, tweeting, writing and calling our senators and other elected representatives, demanding they ditch the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, because it is a gift-wrapped sop to the Unions. The Act’s sole purpose is to destroy independent professionals, and the economy of the nation along with it.

Sadly, it has mostly fallen on deaf ears.

Folks, I don’t care what party you are, call your Senators immediately. This threatens economic freedom–ask the freelancers punished in CA under AB5. Unless you all want to be working for a handful of big biz, the #PROAct needs to be nuked- as Gabby said- to high heaven. https://t.co/bp6WpGMsa8

Republicans and business groups have expressed heavy opposition to the PRO Act, which passed the Democratic-controlled House earlier this year but was dead on arrival in the Senate, which is evenly split.

Other pork disguised as infrastructure that was stuffed into the bill are provisions to lower the Medicare age and expand Medicare benefits. Artificially cap prescription prices, money for child care, money for climate change, immigration, and green cards, and the old saw of tax increases on the wealthy and large corporations, which is the personal pet causes of both Sanders and his cohort Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Fauxahontas).

Not a road, bridge, or building to be seen for miles. Just attacks on
