Dem firewall safeguards forced-labor unionism
A self-proclaimed pro-business state legislature has reignited a 30-year-old issue that pits unions against businesses.

The "right-to-work" proposal would mean that unions could not negotiate contracts that say that all workers must pay for union representation.

State Sen. Luann Ridgeway has filed a bill that would enact the proposal. Under her bill, any existing contracts between unions and businesses would stand, but no such agreements could be made in the future.

That would put Missouri in line with 22 other states, including all the surrounding states except Illinois and Kentucky.

Presumptive Senate President Pro Tem Rob Mayer, R-Dexter, has said the proposal will be a priority in the Senate.

But even if it passes through both Republican-led chambers, it could run into opposition from Democrat Gov. Jay Nixon, who has received more than $200,000 in donations from unions in the past few months.

Rx for Congress: End Seniority System

Insular progressive Ruling Class clings to absolute power
Dear Congress: You stink.

Only 13 percent of Americans say they approve of the job Congress is doing, which beats the old low of 14 percent from July 2008 when gas prices reached record highs on top of a bad economy.

The Gallup pollsters have been charting congressional popularity for 36 years.

Dissatisfaction goes beyond party politics or ideology. Ethics is in short supply. Congress passes legislation crafted by special interests.

And the deficit for the federal government just keeps getting bigger.

But it doesn't take a pollster to know that the patience of Americans is running thin when it comes to Congress doing its part to be more of a solution to the nation's problems than an enabler.

The dissatisfaction reflected in the midterm elections just proved that point.

If Congress continues to spin its wheels, then perhaps its time for citizens groups to seek a bigger change: a constitutional amendment that would put term limits on members of Congress.
