Jerry Brown Suggests SEIU Take Republicans to Lunch

Because the fiscal nightmare that California has become is in part due to the free lunch culture run amok, Jerry Brown unwittingly waxes somewhat metaphorical with this one.

Sacramento Bee:

Gov. Jerry Brown said in a telephone town hall with state employees last night that partisan bickering is more rampant than it once was at the Capitol, and he suggested his tax plan might fare better if Service Employee International Union members plied the other side.

“If every SEIU member would take a Republican to lunch, maybe we would be in better shape,” Brown said in a telephone town hall that the union said reached thousands of employees.

If Republicans regularly lunched with the SEIU, both sides might end up a lot of things, but “in better shape” is very unlikely to be one of them.

Another Jerry Brown secret to wooing the opposition is lots of wine (possibly a nice bottle of Moonbeam Melody).

According to the head of a local SEIU, what Brown is suggesting already happens:

Yvonne Walker, president of SEIU Local 1000, said the union’s membership is 30 percent Republican, and she told Brown, “We take a lot of Republicans to lunch.”

They must not bring them back though, because Republicans aren’t very visible at SEIU protests and picket lines on any given day.
