I think this administration has been manufacturing crises without using union labor, and that has to STOP!
Hey Tumpka, got any comments on your ballot proposal collapse in Michigan last week?
Well in that case. Let Congress adjourn for the year.
That’s what the union bosses told the Hostess employees when trying to convince them to go on strike...”Hostess if FINE they are lying. There is nothing to see here.”
Better to be believe there is a “fiscal cliff” and prepare, then to go la-la-la-ing into a disaster.
A “manufactured crisis”. They said the same thing when the Bush administration tried to speak out and bring to light problems in the housing market, that it was a manufactured crisis, driven by racism, white people who wanted to keep minorities out of the American dream.
So, maybe I am not speechless.
Unions suck. Period.
Reading a great book right now called “Freedom’s Forge” about the industrial buildup prior to and into WWII, and one of the biggest obstacles to industrial growth were the New Dealers, and...unions. And they practiced the same class warfare back then that they do today.
Because everyone knows we can live on 1 1/2 trillion dollars of imaginary capital every year forever.
As if Trumpka was a financial expert....
Trumka is ABSOLUTELY correct on this. The fiscal cliff is but a blip. The REAL crisis is what progressivism and the left is doing - engineered eventual collapse of SS, medicare, medicaid, student loans, highest debt in world history, removal of societal morals, and so on
Well of course Trumka is going to say an additional $3,500 in taxes a year on a family isn’t going to be a problem. Look what he earns that’s “on the books”. You know guys like that receive adding income that isn’t reported that are “gift” or manufactured “reimbursements”. He’s just another liberal crook that has no understanding of how real people live:
RICHARD TRUMKA PRESIDENT $272,250.00 $21,500.00 $293,750.00
No deal on taxes and let them go up in January and deal with the Sequester.
In February, when they want the debt limit raised, say NO.
Let them live within what we take in.
To quote Ed Koch when he lost to Dinkins “They made their choice... now let them suffer”
Until we take the goodies away for ever a little while, there can be no deal. Stop the checks for a few weeks, and entitlement reform might just happen.
Dear Richard: please self-deport. Thanks!
Why should I believe Trumka?
I actually don’t disagree with that statement, although for wildly different reasons. The impact of all these changes for the first of the year are real. The result of the negotiations will limit the impact, but we are still on a high speed train to collapse regardless what they agree too. It will leave obamacare intact, which is the real irreversable death knell to our economy and to individual freedom. We will still have a stagnant slow growth economy for years to come. We will still have massive deficits and debt. Our dollar will continue to decline.
The battle over this cliff is largely just a game and I am mostly tuned out.
Trumka is indeed one of the few persons who has proudly demonstrated an IQ even below that of Dan Rather, the Obamadork, and Chris Matthews.
Congratulations, Trumpka, you are now qualified to be union leader.
Oh, never mind.
Union goons are useful to democrats - everything else about unions makes liberal elites cringe.
Richard Trumka is a dumbka!
I notice that unionistas presume themselves to be experts on business, finance, and now economics.
But oddly enough, these experts never actually run any businesses. Surely a union-run business with union-only labor should be wildly successful, right?
Wonder why that is...
I guess the stock market is in panic mode because Obama had brown shoes on and not the debt crisis.
