Busting Contracts

From BuzzFlash:

Does anyone else recall this and appreciate the irony with respect to the recent push towards union-busting?

Conservatives' One-Way Contractual Integrity

Curiously when voters and some legislators decried the huge bonuses for bankers and Wall Street operators, especially those who had benefited from government bailouts, the answer was that firms were contractually obligated to abide by previously drafted agreements. Yet when cities and states struggle with budgeting shortfalls, contracts with municipal employees are not considered sacrosanct and in fact often become targets for deficit reduction by fiat.

Hypocritical thugs.
