Posted on 06/22/2013 2:16:17 PM PDT by redreno
Declaring that he wants to open up a serious national debate about public-sector unions, the Kentucky Republican came out swinging at a Friday event with the American Enterprise Institute. They are the reason so many state and local municipalities are flat broke, he said of unions that represent public employees at the local, state and federal levels of government. Theyre behind the unsustainable expansion of public pensions. Theyre a major problem.

Followed by lying and general laziness to understand all of the krap sandwiched into these >1,000 page monstrosities.
Unions are only part of the problem Mitch.
He's a joke, as are the rest of the Progressives who have an (R) by their names.
And this is something new? This isn’t a secret, never was. What have you done about it. People would cringe if they knew all the benefits that public servants get, especially the Feds. It’s disgusting. Let’s see.
Federal Agents: Salary....Locality Pay....Built-in Overtime...take home car....gas. i always wondered why they got so much, but the local cops they work with, got so little and lived in the same area. Hmmmm!!!!
Plus, they can be disciplined at work, be unable to prosecute or work on cases but still keep their jobs. So, basically they go to work and peruse the internet or mess around on Facebook all day. All while making 6 figures.
Lets take the State Dept. When they’re overseas, they get plane tickets home. Only, they don’t just get a ticket to their home of record. They get a stipend. If they’re in Iraq, they get around $3500. That way, they can get a ride to the states. Then use the rest to visit friends and family, wherever they are and then fly back to work.
No, Mitch, what causes distrust of government is the constant lying of those who employed by us.
It is people saying one thing, then doing the exact opposite, something you and your party does every single day.
McConnell “defends” HIS defense of
IRS antiConstitutional behavior
and defends the Congressional behavior of
caring MORE about their brothels and banks than the USA.
McConnell and Reid are the self-serving reasons
for the HATE which has created growing drumbeat
for civil war — as they live obliviously
in their perfumed troughs.
A big part of it. I worked with a public employee union and they exist to get Democrats elected. Their livelihood depends on big gov’t, high taxes, more regulations and social programs.
The blame is squarely on you Rino’s, not doing your job, but we will fire all of you as soon as possible.
I don't know .... hell ... we have the best government money can buy. And I'll tell you another thing ... I think we should invade and bomb any country who doesn't agree with our well dressed, old fart, prostitutes we refer to as 'congress'. Yeah ... that's the ticket.
The Nation just wants to paint every Republican as a union buster, so uses ridicule to reach that goal.
The left on the talk shows are running forward and declaring the IRS scandal dead! The Republicans admit that it didn’t trace back to the White house!
Horse Hockey. This is the type of thing that causes distrust in government. All the cover-up and scratching each others backs. We see what you are doing! And, we don’t like it!
There are union criminals and business criminals in this country, plenty of criminals around bankrolling Democrats and Republicans to support their interests as the expense of the rest of us.
Nice, the Head snake, Bo, and his Rat party have his opponents at each others throats.. Between giving amnesty to 12 million criminals from other countries and dividing all the opposition, the Rats will secure power for generations to come.
