NATIONAL AFL-CIO DUMPS THOUSANDS OF ROBO-CALLS INTO MN LEG DISTRICTS TO PUSH TAX INCREASES
Minnesota Democrats Exposed ^ | 7/8/11 | Andy Post

Posted on 07/09/2011 7:02:48 AM PDT by rhema

Dedicated readers of Minnesota Democrats Exposed began notifying us of robo-calls being sent out of a Washington, D.C. call center into the districts of GOP lawmakers over the last several weeks. The calls, paid for by the AFL-CIO union organizing machine, ask union members to stay on the line while they directly connect the caller to the phone number of their state representative, where they are encouraged to leave messages about how they strongly support tax increases to protect union jobs. Many callers, however, used the connection to their legislator as a chance to say “thanks” for standing up to the special interests and that they do NOT support the tax increases.

Here’s one message left by a union member to their GOP state rep after being connected through the robo-dialer: [link follows]


TOPICS: Government; Politics/Elections; US: District of Columbia; US: Minnesota
KEYWORDS: dayton; dfl; districtofcolumbia; gop; minnesota; shutdown

When are all of the union people in “fly over country” going to get the message. The unions all think of you as “slope forehead” idiots.

They have been pulling you around with a ring in your nose telling you how to vote for years, picking your pockets for the union bosses and the politicians and now they want you to tell your congressman that you don't pay enough in taxes. Tax us more?

The trade unions are being overun with illegals, there is no new construction. People are losing everything they have. Well if any union person tells them “tax me more” they really are a “slope forehead” idiot.
