Terry McAuliffe’s Flip-Flop-Flip on Right to Work

Terry McAuliffe’s Flip-Flop-Flip on Right to Work

September 1, 2021

In another episode of “Terry McAuliffe will say anything to get elected,” the career politician told a CNN reporter on Wednesday that Virginia’s right-to-work law wouldn’t change if he was elected governor.

McAuliffe recently flip-flopped on his previous pledge to “never change” VA’s right-to-work law in April, stating he would sign a bill to repeal it if given the opportunity. 

The Free Lance-Star: “‘If it came to my desk, sure, I’d sign it,’ he told the Democratic Business Council of Northern Virginia shortly before Big Labor contributed $2.2 million to his campaign.”

“However, the Virginia Economic Development Partnership, the state agency working to lure new business projects to the commonwealth, warned that repealing the law would jeopardize 260 potential manufacturing and supply chain projects that would create more than 32,700 new jobs and bring $16.7 billion in capital investment to Virginia.”

Fox News: “Since his announcement in support of the repeal, some of the nation’s most influential labor unions have donated $2.2 million in total to McAuliffe’s campaign, according to new campaign financial filings. This accounts for almost 30% of his fundraising haul over the last quarter.”

Bottom line: Terry McAuliffe has proven yet again that he will do or say anything to get elected, including contradicting his previous positions on important issues. For McAuliffe, accumulating power always takes priority over hardworking Virginians.
