Sarah Palin Implores Union Members To Break With Leadership On Backroom Deal

Posted by Gary P Jackson on January 15, 2010

Sarah wasted no time today as she came out swinging early against the late night backroom deal Barack Obama made with the unions, exempting them from the so called “Cadillac tax” on the top of the line insurance policies that some employers offer.

Anyone who even remotely follows politics knows that Obama owes his entire career to the union thugs at the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), a division of ACORN.

With that in mind, it’s not surprising that Obama would bow to pressure from his union thug masters. I mean why not, he has bowed to everyone else!

Sarah’s call to action is pretty self explanatory:

Union Brothers and Sisters: Your Leadership Doesn’t Get It – You Deserve Better

In the latest to come out of D.C.’s backroom health care deals, President Obama yesterday cut a doozy of a deal with labor union bosses. The fed’s health care plan must be so bad that even union bosses had to go to D.C. to say they wanted out. So… to keep their support for a flawed plan they got an exemption to provisions in the deal that others did not. Small business owners, our families running America’s mom & pops, did not get this deal. Ask yourself: why did union bosses get special treatment? And when did our country’s unions get on the wrong track with moves like this that hurt their good members and put them in such a bad light?

Good hard-working, pro-free-market, pro-America union members should join in opposition to their union bosses’ sweetheart deal. Coming from a union background and living in a world with many union memberships among my family and friends, I know that average members will be embarrassed by their bosses’ deal, which basically only delays the heavy tax on their health care plans until 2018 and in the meantime unfairly leaves many fellow Americans in a much less “enviable” position.

Union members don’t want to stick it to non-union colleagues in the private and public sector. Their union leadership is not helping them in the long run, they’re certainly not helping the rest of America, and unfortunately some union bosses are making all union members look bad, selfish, and anti-business with this Big Government backroom deal.

I know that ordinary union members don’t want to hurt their fellow Americans, just as ordinary Nebraskans didn’t want to stick it to the rest of the country with a sweetheart deal on Medicaid subsidies. I urge union members to make their voices heard. Please, call your leadership – don’t put up with these special-interest politics – tell them to fight for all Americans who want common sense health care reform, not this flawed boondoggle.

– Sarah Palin

Obviously, Sarah speaks with great moral authority here, as there are indeed many union members in her family, including her husband Todd. It’s deals like these that only further cement the union thug image in people’s minds.

Unions are already looked at in an incredibly poor light. This backroom deal does absolutely nothing to help that. This sort of thing is just one more reason why many states, including mine, have tough “right to work” laws that severely limit union activities.

I share the same sentiment Sarah has for the average union worker. Most are hard working, all-American people. It’s management, leadership that is corrupt beyond belief.

Also, like Sarah, I see deals like this, and the sweetheart deals that Ben Nelson got for Nebraska, and Mary Landrieu got for Louisiana, both exempting their states from the harmful effects of ObamaCare, as a sure sign that America needs to pull out all stops when it comes to killing ObamaCare before it ever becomes law!

    My sincerest appreciation goes to you for the support of Michelle Bachmann as her tenacity and Constitutional values are exemplary. I only wish I could be near when the ill mannered, self-sating, egotistic morons publicly try to demean her credibility for insisting on Constitutionality.
    If your decision is to support John McCain, so be it. You must feel that he has redeemable qualities or you wouldn’t be throwing another adversary into the arena.
    Best of luck on all you do. Fear not as “Right is Might”.

    Comment on Unions follow-up

    Common sense dictates the leaks must be repaired before the ship sails.
    Nationalized unionization could be Obama’s worst mistake against jobs and business next to the bottomless bucket of “Stimulus for nothing” added to the taxpayers I.O.U. and continuing Bush’s mandated bank parameters that stimulated this crisis. Understand that there is always someone willing to take up the slack in any process for a price but there need be diligent oversight as to which Congress has never complied. Government’s need to negotiate contracts, without oversight, for every Paper Clip to Aircraft Carrier further validates their inability to provide “Hands On Knowledge” necessary to eliminate fraud, graft, price fixing and the collusion in everyday ethics violations that has become an institution in itself through Congressional Delegation.
    The agreeable truth that union members don’t always support what some leaders negotiate is a gross understatement. In fact if the whole truth were known, most would opt out, as annualized pay increases are often less than dues paid while jobs/positions are eliminated and needed supplies, tools and equipment become secondary necessities when survival mode becomes the order of the day. This always imposes burden on the better employees through compromised processes by the few Brain Dead employees that are mandated and union protected to receive over compensatory wages.
    Their brotherhood concept demands solidarity to the extent of falsifying testimony to protect members from deserved punishment and on occasion in supporting unfounded accusations against Company and/or management. The whole functional purpose of unionization in the end is to leverage assumed member power to compromise process integrity, reduce quality, inflate product cost, lower safety standards and disrupt stability in the operations management control. Mandated promotion of lesser-qualified members and reverse discriminatory advancement of minorities further damage the Free Enterprise concepts to compete in a manner conducive to Fair Market Values.
    You are way too timid on unionization when inferring some of the leaders use illegal influence for unjustifiable negotiations. They leverage every means available to destroy what Free Enterprise stands for while vilifying the very purpose of their being, support of Pure Capitalism in its’ most monopolized and ugly state, one man dominates all markets.
    Law enactments have been an ongoing process to maintain a level playing field while Power Moguls use lobbyists, corrupt politicians and coercive tactics to abate the laws and often enact counter-productive legislation to feed the elitists insatiable appetite for power.
    Reality defines Free Enterprise as the opportunity for Business Entities to enter the arena with equal market opportunity based on finance, work ethic, ingenuity, product and determination.
    Reality defines Capitalism as the accumulative leveraging to control the total market place through the elimination of competition. Unionizations’ specialty is coercion within the system to over burden non-union competitors into default while reducing the Quality of product, training, management and safety by inflating expenses in unionized entities.
    You must learn to be somewhat confrontational through insinuation or inference on areas of public interest in order to expose controversial practices and bring perpetrators to the table for debate while maintaining a back door for quick emergency exits.
    Sincerest apologies if my observations are ever proven to be erroneous.

  3. FOX is trying to give Sarah a boost – she needs to move forward and quit letting anyone intimidate her; I want to hear what she really thinks. Quit being politically correct during your interviews, Sarah, just say it the way you feel. People are ready to follow you, but you’re sort of beating around the bush and it’s time to move on…

  4. Sarah is right about the behind closed doors meeting with the “Top Dogs” in the Union. But, the one idea that comes to mind, why can’t we get Obama, Pelosi, Reid and other politicians to commit to one thing: If this reform is so great or awesome, then they must agree to drop the Federal Health Insurance they have now and join all the rest of us. They can’t be exempt from this great reform – at least I don’t think they can… Sort of like “Whats good for the goose is good for the gander,” kind of reasoning.
