Mitt Romney has come under fire for his statements saying that right-to-work laws should remain a state issue, even though, as he reiterated here during Sen. Jim DeMint's GOP Presidential Forum, he said that he would sign a national right-to-work law if it came across his desk as President. Romney has also previously had some praise for unions, making similar statements to the one here where he said "unions play an important role in our country." Apparently Romney doesn't think much of that role if you're either talking about government worker's unions, or heaven forbid unions being allowed to have any influence over our politicians and making campaign donations.

Jim Demint, Newt Gingrich decided to triple down on his statement calling President Obama "the most effective food stamp president in American history" and using the city of Detroit as an example to claim that "class warfare and bureaucratic socialism kill jobs."
