    New NO On Porposal 2 Video

    Its a good one.

    CPMC just cut loose with their latest ad titled "Dangerous," featuring metro Detroit police officer Terry Fortuna exposing the truth about Proposal 2.  The state's Attorney General and law enforcement leaders from across Michigan have been educating residents about the devastating effect Proposal 2 would have on 170 laws that voters, parents, Sheriffs and police count on to protect Michiganders.

    Officer Fortuna says:

    "I'm pro-union, its just that I'm not pro Proposal 2.  They are trying to sell this as collective bargaining, but collective bargaining is already protected by federal law.  You don't have to know anything about Proposal 2 except that its dangerous.  Vote NO on Proposal 2."

    According to Proposal 2's own language, the proposed constitutional amendment would give union contracts veto power over state laws, by "invalidat(ing) existing or future state or local laws" and will "override state laws that regulate...conditions of employment to the extent that those laws conflict with collective bargaining agreements," giving government union contracts veto power over the laws that keep Michigan kids and families safe.

    AG Schuette found that this language would invalidate over 170 different laws and reforms, including many that keep Michigan kids safe at school like laws establishing minimum safety training standards for bus drivers and empowering school districts to immediately remove teachers from the classroom who have been caught under the influence or selling drugs at school.

    The Michigan Education Association, the state's largest teachers union and one of the most prominent financial backers of Proposal 2, concurred with Schuette's findings earlier this year when they issued a confidential legal memo that claimed passage of Proposal 2 would "immediately" overturn the law that gives public schools the right to immediately remove teachers caught selling drugs in the classroom or under the influence of drugs or alcohol at school, among others.

    Using our own tax dollars to promote a tax hike. (none / 0) (#1)

    This was pointed out to me earlier in the week.

    Exactly WHERE did this guy get this turnout gear (and helmet and oxygen mask, etc.)?

    It's bad enough that the union crowd is playing fast and loose with the facts.

    It's even worse when a union member is taking city issued, taxpayer funded turnout gear to appear in an TV ad.

    And unless you live in the City of Detroit, you tell me one municipal fire department that would send out firefighters with shoddy gear?

    Hopefully the ads are working (none / 0) (#2)

    They seem like they should be effective ads, but we have a lot to overcome with guaranteed support for the Proposal by most union members.

    It'd be interesting to see recent polling numbers on this, but with how strong the unions are in Michigan, I don't think the outcome is going to be the one we want.

    Walker .. Daniels .. Kasich.  They all hung together.

    The Nerd went separate, embolden the unions, and hung the Michigan taxpayers with fighting Prop 2.

    That fight over lost ground will not be forgotten by me.
