Hoosier Dems H8 Worker-Choice
The first day of the Indiana legislative session began with sparks flying in the House, where minority Democrats made procedural objections in an effort to derail so-called right-to-work legislation.

The opening day of the session typically consists of handshakes and pledges by Republicans and Democrats to work together. But a skirmish over the rules began on Wednesday minutes after lawmakers said the Pledge of Allegiance.

Democrats wanted the chance to immediately reject legislation that would prevent workers from being required to pay union dues.

"This is the only opportunity we have in the minority or the majority to say this topic is off the table," said Rep. Edward DeLaney, D-Indianapolis. "We don't think it's worth our time. We don't want it sent to the committee."

Minority Leader Pat Bauer, D-South Bend, also called the move class warfare on working people. "Why can't we just work together to get the best jobs and get Indiana back on track?" he asked.

Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma ruled against Democrats, so the legislation will move to a committee for a possible hearing along with a second measure which would prohibit Project Labor Agreements that non-union contractors believe squeeze them out of government construction projects.

We're all Corruptocrats now
At her final press conference as House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said, "Deficit reduction has been a high priority for us. It is our mantra, pay-as-you-go."

...When the Pelosi Democrats took control of Congress on January 4, 2007, the national debt stood at [$8.67 trillion]. The last day of the 111th Congress and Pelosi's Speakership on December 22, 2010 the national debt was [$13.9 trillion] - a roughly $5.2 trillion increase in just four years. Furthermore, the year over year federal deficit has roughly quadrupled during Pelosi's four years as speaker, from $342 billion in fiscal year 2007 to an estimated $1.6 trillion at the end of fiscal year 2010.

Atrocious Prog Countdown #6

Can't anybody here play this game?

6. Pelosi The Prognosticator

By now we’ve all heard a gracious plenty about how historic November’s midterm elections were. And they really were historic, but I think that fact has been talked about to death. What has not received as much coverage is that virtually everyone seemed to have seen it coming — everyone, that is, except Nancy Pelosi. The soon-to-be-former House Speaker was oddly confident on Election Day that the Democrats would retain control of the House, despite the prevailing conventional wisdom otherwise.

As far back as May, amidst early buzz about a Republican rout, Nancy Pelosi predicted victory for the Democrats:
Despite some predictions of a huge GOP wave this fall, Pelosi says it’s not going to happen: “One thing I know for sure is that Democrats will retain their majority in the House of Representatives.”
Even as late at 6:35 p.m. on Election Day, she was confident:
“With the early returns and the overwhelming number if Democrats who are coming out, we’re on pace to maintain the majority,” she said.
Oddly enough, from six months before to the end of the election cycle, Pelosi’s ridiculous confidence went completely against pretty much all conventional wisdom. What was her confidence based on? We may never really know. Then again, it’s just as much of a mystery why she was one of the Democrats who was reelected.
