632: Union Workers Lose as Teamsters Pension Defaults

Replace all of this code with the youtube embed code, set width=910 height=512

Here’s a question for you…

Why would the federal government pass a law to bail out a private pension program?

What business is it of the federal government (or any government) to involve itself in a private contract dispute?

Crazy as it might sound the feds, led by Bernie Sanders, is trying to pass the Keep Our Pension Promises Act which would provide a form of bailout to the Teamsters private Central States Pension Fund which currently pays out more than $3 for ever $1 it brings in.

It’s a form government corruption, not at the hands of crony capitalists but by unions who made promises of fat pensions they could never hope to cover.

Is Maxine Waters running for President in 2020?

Lord, please say yes!

Can you imagine the hours of material a presidential run by Maxine would provide? She’s a goldmine of political humor.

It’s not impossible. She’s headed to New Hampshire for a picknick to hobnob with the Democratic elites of Strafford County.

Here’s me, crossing my fingers.
