Workers reject UAW in TN VW plant vote

Some years ago a dude asked, Why is there no socialism in the United States? Not yet, but the Republicans are trying so hard to make it happen...
John Wright, 43, is a test driver at the plant and identifies as a right-leaning independent. He says he makes between $30,000 and $40,000 a year, and supports a wife and three young daughters. When Corker  -- who takes more money from the securities and investment industry than any other -- came back to Nashville to voice his opposition to the UAW, Wright was puzzled. 
"It made me really start thinking about my position, when it comes to political parties, because I can't for the life of me understand why the Republicans and big money are coming against us so bad. To me, they're attacking the average worker," Wright said, in the hours before the election results were announced. "To have politicians think that there's nothing more important than coming down and picking on the little guy because he wants a union, there's a national debt we've got to control, we have foreign policy things that we elect them to go up there to do, but you have to fly home for an emergency meeting because I want a union?"
