President Obama commented about the Wisconsin conflict between elected officials and unelected Union members that we should all remember that Public sector union workers were our friends and neighbors.
I guess he means that before those in Wisconsin who still have private sector jobs (the type that pay the public sector union worker’s salary and retirement) come down hard on teachers who are making $80K in salary and benefits, they need to remember that those people are friends and neighbors.
One has to wonder how our President does math. If Group A contributed to a fund that continues to go down, and Group B draws from that fund and each year they demand more, basic math skills informs you that eventually there will be a day of reckoning. Since Public sector workers are paid from the tax dollars of the private sector worker, there needs to be an understanding that Group A can’t go on forever giving more to Group B when Group A runs out of funds.
President Obama has come out in support of Group B and against Group A. Isn’t he supposed to be the President of all Americans and not just union workers?
Maybe this explains why the Obama economy is so bad.
