Wow, six lies in one sentence. Even for a liberal, that's quite an accomplishment.
You don’t get to be head of the AFL-CIO without being a thug and a demagogue.
Unions have become un-American... dump them all, NOW.
He fails to mention that borrowing more to pay for Medicare and useless federal bureaucracies is a brutal economic assault on everyone under 60 years of age, all of whom will ultimately have to pay higher taxes to pay all the interest on our massive federal debt load.
It’s the liberal democrats who are actually blackmailing American into more massive borrowing and spending with the threat of default on our debts if we all don’t pay up for more spending to benefit their key supporters (such as the corrupt AFL-CIO).
So what else would one expect from a union thug?
Trumka getting hot under the collar is a good sign.
And, yes, good suggestion: let him call for a strike of all federal workers. And may several million of them walk off the job.
Then maybe the reality of the situation we’re in will be evident to all.
He is an expert on “Blackmail” you have to admit.
I think,if Richard Trumka has any balls, he should call on all Federal Government employess to go on strike,shut it down;)
Hey Dick, in case you didn’t get the memo, WE WON.
Dick Trumpka... before he dicks you.
Who creates jobs and who destroys jobs? Does Trumka really think government and unions create jobs (even though they create iron-clad till-they-die pensioned jobs for union members)? No they destroy economic growth and thereby jobs or else drive away jobs off-shore by their hostile economic climate. It is economic growth spurred by those rich investors and healthy climate created by tax cuts and business-friendly policies at home that creates jobs.
Yep. Then, after everybody is outside, lock all the doors and throw away all the keys.
When tax cuts for the rich come, usually more jobs follow, and I would not complain.
Also “dismantling the government” (at least all the extraneous thingamajigs it has gained over the last hundred years) might not be that horrible a thing.
can’t spend what you don’t have
unless you’re a democrat/progressive... then it’s all someone else’s money anyhow. so keep spending!
Well, which way will Boehner go? It was nice seeing the Senate Republicans actually pulling a filibuster on Obama’s pick for the 9th circuit of clowns. Hopefully the House will grow a set and not raise the debt limit. I’m not gonna hold my breath though.
Did you believe that “blackmail” was a strictly MOB job description, requiring a union card to exercise?
Since when do YOU object to such tactics?
oh...you think that if you call attention to the methods that “principled” people use, that they will have pangs of conscience that don’t seem to inhibit you....
