Big Labor, Obama And Dems Have Big Plan$ For You
Note: Long-time readers know I rarely do fundraising, or blegs, as they're called. As I continue to not seek positions with campaigns, or within the establishment down here to preserve my independence, the blog is self-supporting. Hell, aren't most conservatives? heh! Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated, particularly just now. The make a donation button is at top on the sidebar … over there –>
In one of my more informative and important interviews (see 20 minute podcast link below), Brett McMahon of the Associated Building Contractors walks through the real story behind Big Labor, Obama and the Democrats, as well as how it will cost American workers and companies hundreds of billions of dollars if we don't defeat their agenda.
Recent polls indicate unions are out of favor in America today. Why shouldn't they be, what with hundreds of billions of dollars in soon to be bankrupt pension fund liabilities? But Big Labor is in favor with Progressive Democrats, whose campaigns they are now even borrowing against future dues in some cases, to fund. The payback will cost Americans hundreds of billions of dollars in liabilities not ours to cover.
“Favorable views of labor unions have plummeted since 2007, amid growing public skepticism about unions’ purpose and power."
They're paying up to, if not more than $3 million to try to buy Blanche Lincoln's current Senate seat – in effect, financing challenger Bill Halter's entire ad campaign. After buying Obama with money and boots on the ground, it still isn't enough. Now, they're gambling with money all but confiscated from workers for more power because, if they don't get their agenda passed, they will disappear under the weight of their over-promised and mismanaged pension fund fiscal liabilities. They need other American taxpayers and companies to dig them out from under to survive and Obama intends to help them do it.
Three unions had already pledged $3 million to help Halter's campaign.
Obama cut a special deal in his health care bill for what amounts to only 7% of the private sector work force, just as he cut the UAW a deal in the auto industry fiasco, because he knows the money and support will come back to him in 2012. At least, he hopes it does. But we, not the unions, will be footing the larger bill for Democrats supported by union members given marching orders to support progressive Democrats on the ground, as well.
Organized labor groups scored a victory Monday in President Barack Obama's healthcare bill. Obama, in his health bill unveiled Monday, softened the impact of the tax on high-value insurance plans (the so-called "Cadillac tax") that was contained in the Senate's initial legislation.
And that's only the tip of this corrupt iceberg. Spend 20 minutes with this podcast to hear the story the media isn't reporting behind Obama, the Democrats and Big Labor, including the laws and maneuverings they are undertaking to get their hand in the cookie jar to survive after years of fiscal mismanagement. Think of it, SEIU's Andy Stern's own pension fund is headed toward insolvency, yet he warrants a seat on a Federal Deficit Commission?? What a revealing but bad, expensive joke that one is. The podcast won't cost you, failure to understand what's at stake absolutely will.
Next up, below, is a ten minute podcast with Katie Packer of the Workforce Fairness Institute talking EFCA aka Card Check. That's another part of the plan they have. Forced unionization, combined with the Multi-Employer Pension Plan Amendment Act of 1980 – discussed on the call above with Brett, means new companies they target and force to unionize will be on the hook for pension liabilities accrued by existing companies, whose pension funds are now poised to go bust. It will constitute a government supported act of fraud and theft on a scale that makes Abraham Madoff look like a beggar chasing chump change at a DC Metro stop.
With Obama, Big Labor has put all its wishes upon a star, Obama, in hopes of legalized theft to survive. And they intend to cash in with help from the White House. That's why Joe Biden was whooping it up with Big Labor at a swanky Florida resort with union big wigs poised to leave their membership broke as they continue to retire.

Vice President Joe Biden told the AFL-CIO that the Obama administration will still be able to push through a controversial union organizing bill that has been stalled for the past year and looked all but dead once Democrats lost their 60-seat super-majority in the Senate.
