FACISISM GAINING GROUND IN AMERIKA
The Michigan State Assembly has given final approval to an emergency financial management bill decried by critics as an attack on workers and basic democracy. Under the bill, emergency financial managers would be allowed to break union contracts, dismiss elected officials and even disincorporate entire municipalities. Republican Gov. Rick Snyder is expected to sign the measure into law. Snyer is also attempting to push through a plan to tax the public and private pensions of senior citizens. Over a thousand people held a protest outside the state Capitol in Lansing Tuesday before attempting a sit-in inside. Protesters are vowing to return for another rally today.
