Obama: Look What Unions Have Done For Michigan, Detroit Going Bankrupt

Posted by Brian
President Obama continued his 2012 election campaign in Redford, Michigan by blasting Right-to-Work bills, saying "The-the-the-the-the these so-called right-to-work laws, they don't have to do with economics.

You wanna talk about a liberal utopia?  Detroit is it.
