Does he finally get it? "Emanuel said he intends to get private companies to clean the city’s airports and libraries, work now done by city employees. Operators at the city’s water-bill call center and employee benefit managers also will see their jobs outsourced. Those union workers will receive 30- and 45-day layoff notices."
Now that I’ve done the math, Obama's tax policy makes sense to me. It’s because while Obama talks about investment what he’s really interested in is addiction. And tax increases.
Even as Mitt Romney inexplicably flip-flops on his past very accurate observation that President Obama has made the economy worse, liberals in the mainstream media are now underscoring the former Massachusetts governor's initial charge.
Even some Tea Party Caucus members have added to the $6 million price tag on last year's congressional staffers bonuses.
San Francisco city employees‘ pensions are higher than the average non-government worker's earnings.
The problem of course is that the 2 million advanced manufacturing job openings that Obama, Immelt and Chenault are talking about really don’t exist. Why doesn’t it surprise me that these guys would feel perfectly comfortable lying to the American people about job openings that don’t actually exist?
Michigan Union Targets Legislator’s Business
NJ Gov. Christie on the absurdity of government "sick day payouts".
As conservatives suffer endless repetitions of the solemn, soggy Democratic mantra of “shared sacrifice,” they need to resist the powerful temptation to snarl back, “I’m already sacrificing more than enough, thank you very much!”
“Raise our taxes!” Can you imagine chanting such a slogan at a public rally? Neither could most Americans. There is one notable exception, however: government-union activists.
Many politicians envision themselves in an exalted roll and then act accordingly. Some imagine themselves as a benevolent father figure, others as a populist folk hero, but the most nausea-inducing usually see themselves as the savior of mankind.
Some told us we should just give up. Others told us we should simply accept the federal judge’s decision and resign ourselves to the fact that the First Amendment is now dead on our college campuses.
On March 25, 1911—exactly 100 years ago—approximately 500 workers were crafting “shirtwaists,” blouses with puffy sleeves and tight waists.
“It’s time to get even,” declares a union letter to Wisconsin Teachers. An April 5th election for a seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court could be their chance for revenge.
"Madison is just the beginning!" AFL-CIO chief Richard Trumka told a union rally in Annapolis, Md., recently. "Like that old song goes, 'You ain't seen n-n-n-n-nothing yet!'"
"I’m not going to lie to you, this is going to get ugly.” So predicts “Goldfish,” a Daily Kos blogger...
Who won the battle of Wisconsin? Republican Gov. Scott Walker got a legislative victory. On the other hand, Democrats, with a wary eye on 2012 and noting the worrying drop in support for President Obama in union-heavy states like Pennsylvania and Michigan, claim to be delighted that Walker has picked this fight.
We live at a time when all Americans must sacrifice. All, that is, except those of us who can be politically helpful to our President as he seeks re-election.
The vote in Wisconsin to limit public-employee bargaining rights is a decisive turning point in American politics.
Anyone who still doesn’t believe that this system needs to be totally reformed hasn’t given any thought to the cost of public education, or the dismal performance of school districts in major cities.
