“Now, however, with the IRS in the center of the political profiling scandal, the Kelley and the NTEU have gone quiet.”
Obama Appointed IRS Union President to Group in Charge of Federal Raises in 2010
The week after Republicans historic 2010 midterm election landslide, President Barack Obama appointed the union president that represents tens of thousands in the IRS, Colleen Kelley, to a key Administration post. Two years later, that union, the National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU), contributed $580,412 to federal candidates94% of which were Democrats.
The position Obama appointed Kelley to: the Federal Salary Council, an advisory group charged with recommending federal employee raises.
Representing 150,000 members from 31 federal agencies and departments including the Internal Revenue Service, the NTEU bills itself as the nations largest independent federal union. Kelley, herself a former IRS Agent, commands her union brigade with partisan ferocity.
Now, however, with the IRS in the center of the political profiling scandal, the Kelley and the NTEU have gone quiet.
NTEU is working to get the facts but does not have any specifics at this time, Kelley wrote in an email reply to The Washington Post. Moreover, IRS employees are not permitted to discuss taxpayer cases. We cannot comment further at this time.
Unions support Obama via donations and intimidation of conservatives, Obama gets strengthened, Obama appoints key union leaders to high levels in his administration where they have the power to exert even more control and intimidation over the public via lawsuits, audits, withholding of healthcare, (IRS/Treasury Presdidents given job as head of Obamacare, etc.) jobs are lost, making more people either depend on government for handouts or go to work for the federal government, where they join the Fedgov unions, which donate to the Democrats, which....
What a perfect vicious circle of increasing power, fear, intimidation. Not quite to the point of gulags, but I think they are closer than people realize to having the power to do that if these people arent stopped and soon.
