    The conservatives blast unions and want tax breaks for big business. The liberals blast big business and want the unions free reign.

    Would you consider unions to be "Big Business"
    In a way they do have many similarities.

    Conservatives (also) demand tax breaks for small businesses, claiming that small businesses generate the majority of new jobs and forgetting to mention that 80% of new businesses go bankrupt within 3 years. Going bankrupt is legal stealing.

    Yes, national unions are big business. Seems obvious. In business, "big" is measured by cash flow.
