This week, shopping addicts Obama and Pelosi, spent another $26B on stimulus. Theyâ€™d have you believe this is about saving jobs for teachers and firefighters. But that is such a mischaracterization.
To understand the problem, you first need to fully understand how local unions have bankrupted the states. This has hit California particularly hard over the past 30 years, but the same drama is playing out in states across the country. For the full details, go read this article to understand how Jerry Brown enabled public service workers in California to unionize, and how ever since then, California has fallen from grace.
At this point, the Unions have tapped out the states. In the past, theyâ€™ve always been able to squeeze a little more money out of California. But California has been bled dry.
Recognizing that theyâ€™ve exhausted local money, the massive, cash-rich unions are turning to their only available savior: the federal government. Unfortunately, Obama and Pelosi are too clueless to know what is happening.
Itâ€™s sad to hear this â€“ but it is true. We pay our public workers too much. The only solution is to cut pay or to cut workers. Federal bailouts will not cure the disease. We need to eliminate unions from our public jobs and start anew.
