No Comment from Lincoln Chafee on Organized Labor’s Focus on Opposing RI Pension Reform

Based on independent Gubernatorial candidate Lincoln Chafee’s description of party primaries as “destructive beasts” in response to Christine O’Donnell’s victory in the Delaware Republican Senate primary (earlier Anchor Rising item here), I e-mailed the Chafee campaign to ask if Mr. Chafee believed that opposition to pension reform constituted a purity test for organized labor’s political activity in Rhode Island, which also fed a “destructive beast” when applied to the primary process.
A spokesman for the Chafee campaign said that the former Senator had no comment on the matter.

“the former Senator had no comment on the matter.”
… wait, so how can we tell when a purity test is “feeding a destructive beast” and when it’s a good thing?

Sammy, perhaps you agree with Ahmadinijad and Chafee. Your perogative. But if you consider the Ayatollah’s puppet “conservative” in the context of American politics, you are as stupid as Chafee.
They both seem to want to take a conspiratorial view of the events of 9/11. (A slap in the face of victims, rescue workers and anyone who loves America) Americans know where Ahmadinijad stands. RI voters have a right to know where Chafee stands. That’s my point.

Thanks for your text. I would also love to say a health insurance brokerage service also works best for the benefit of the actual coordinators of a group insurance plan. The health insurance broker is given a listing of benefits looked for by anyone or a group coordinator. What a broker can is find individuals or maybe coordinators which best complement those needs. Then he provides his tips and if both parties agree, this broker formulates a contract between the two parties.
