Maybe it’s just me, but when I read this headline, I thought it was from Progress Missouri.
Nope. It was the Associated Press.
By the way, they didn’t cut it enough.
The safety net is a looter’s term for legalized plunder. The government’s job is secure rights, not redistribute wealth.
I don’t know how I missed this audio from the Missouri Alliance for Freedom, but the content of it was pointed out to me yesterday while I was in Jefferson City. In an interview a week ago, MAF President Ryan Johnson spoke with Nick Reed on KSGF regarding Sen. Bob Dixon. In the interview, he lays out that Sen. Dixon was actually working with Democrats to kill Right to Work.
Here’s what he said:
Ryan Johnson: You would think that Springfield’s own Senator Bob Dixon would be with us on [Right to Work.] For instance, in the poll that we recently took of Right to Work in MIssouri, we did a statewide poll, a super poll actually, over 10,000 voters voters, general election voters for 2016 were surveyed in this poll, and in the Springfield market alone, 69 percent, 69 percent of Springfield area voters said that they agreed that no American should be required to join any private organization like a labor union against their will. That’s significant. And if I were Sen. Dixon, I would listen to that. And I would not only make sure that voted for Right to Work, but I would make sure that I voted for the PQ, or moving the previous question, to break the likely Democratic filibuster against Right to Work.
Now unfortunately, I’ve heard it on good authority from a variety of sources within the Senate that Sen. Dixon may have been actually collaborating with Democrats working against Right to Work.
Nick Reed: That’s what they call ‘reaching across the aisle.’
RJ: Oh, I’m sorry. Yes. In the spirit of bi-partisanship, he was working against Right to Work. Potentially.
Johnson continued saying if he was wrong, he would be happy to come on the radio and “eat crow” and “apologize.”
He did apologize a week later. For hurting Dixon’s feelings.
Apparently, Dixon didn’t like being outed as a willing collaborator in the fight against Right to Work.
For the record, I have other sources that say Johnson’s claims are true, that Dixon was working with the left to stop Right to Work from passing out of the Senate.
This shows why we can’t have nice things in Missouri. Too many progressive Republicans.
