The so-called ‘right-to-work’ laws — they don’t have to do with economics, they have everything to do with politics. What they’re really talking about is giving you the right to work for less money.
President Obama • During a speech in Michigan today, clearly laying out his views on a new law that will make Michigan the 24th “right to work” state in the country. Michigan’s House of Representatives is expected to review the bill on Tuesday, and Gov. Rick Snyder could sign it into law by the end of the day. Massive protests took place at the capital building, and union workers opposed to its passage say they’ll be back tomorrow. source

We are not going to be able to come up with comprehensive tax reform package that gets it all done just in the next two weeks. We are not going to be able to come up with necessarily a comprehensive entitlement reform package that gets it all done in the next two weeks. When you look at what Ronald Reagan did back in 1986 working with Bill Bradley and others, that was a year-and-a-half process … Let’s essentially put a down payment on taxes. Let’s let taxes on upper-income folks go up.
President Obama • Demanding an end to top-end Bush tax cuts during his first post-election interview with Bloomberg News’ Julianna Goldman. While he may have signaled some willingness to compromise, the President told Goldman that Republicans needed to give more, and that the most recent “fiscal cliff” proposal from Speaker Boehner was “still out of balance.” source

A historic visit: For the first time ever, a sitting U.S. president has visited Myanmar (or if you roll that way, Burma), a country long cut off from the outside world. The president, accompanied by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, isn’t going there to endorse the government he claims, but the steps it needs to take. The official U.S. Embassy account for the country has more.

If Senator McCain and Senator Graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. And I’m happy to have that discussion with them. But for them to go after the U.N. Ambassador, who had nothing to do with Benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous.
President Obama at his first press conference today. This was in response to McCain and Graham pledging to block Susan Rice’s nomination if Obama taps her for Secretary of State. source

Respect for the principles of democracy; respect for the states to make decisions on matters that primarily affect the residents of those states; the chance to conserve scarce federal financial resources — these we believe are many strong reasons for you to defer to the state decisions.
Rep. Barney Frank and Rep. Ron Paul • In an open letter to President Obama, asking that his administration not interfere with recently passed ballot measures that legalized the recreational usage of marijuana in Washington and Colorado. The retiring House members have both long been advocates of reforming existing drug laws, and have repeatedly introduced federal decriminalization legislation in the past. The Department of Justice and Drug Enforcement Agency have remained relatively mum on the new laws, outside of signaling disapproval, though many expect to hear some word on the federal government’s stance in the days and weeks ahead. source
