Sen. Mitch McConnell: IRS Union Employees Took Their Cues to Target Conservatives from Union Leaders – Jim Hoft
“His past record and present mismanagement, if not actual malfeasance, at the Justice Department should disqualify him from serious consideration for not only the job of Secretary of Labor, but for any position of responsibility in the U.S. government.” – More …..
Government unions in particular are an obstacle to reforming pensions and improving public schools. At some point these problems will need to be resolved – and a confrontation with unions is almost guaranteed.
Obama is probably the best propagandist in U.S. history. His ‘investments’ really mean stealing more money from future generations to fund his Democrat campaign and leftist agenda supporting unions:
So much for freedom. Union funded Democrats in New Jersey have passed a law prohibiting non-union workers from getting jobs in the taxpayer funded cleanup of hurricane Sandy. This is a classic example of how the unholy alliance between union thugs and corrupt Democrats steal from the taxpayers, launder the money through union dues and funnel it right back to the Democrat lawmakers to stay in power and continue the vicious cycle.
Long term Democrat/progressive/socialist control has brought California to bankruptcy. Unions unholy alliance with Democrats, environmental wackos, and acclaimed victimhood of every group has brought the utopian state of California to ruin. Higher costs, higher taxes, ever increasing tyranny of regulations and thought police have made the state dysfunctional. The first to flee were businesses. Now people are seeing the results of their welfare state.
The corrupt and violence promoting union thug Richard Trumka seems to be pulling Obama’s strings on the ridiculous tax the rich scam that is only popular with socialist Democrats and uninformed citizen parasites.

The Democrats borrow the people’s money in the form of promised future benefits and high wages and and the cycle begins again. The Democrats get power and money in the form of public office and benefits. Obama isn’t just an opportunist with this union push, he is a tried and true union believer. Former SEIU president Andy Stern was the most frequent visitor to the White House while leading with socialist slogans. Now we find out that AFL-CIO boss Richard Trumka visits the White House 2 or 3 times a week and speaks with the White House daily.
