The Obama takeover of America is a ground up effort to destroy the private sector starting at the bottom. We have discussed the Assange attack and it’s young participants, coordinators, teen computer hackers, college rebels…, all operating in similar fashion. All of the bridges Obama was building around the world were being destroyed by Assange while Obama ignored him.
Stimulus funds kept the lights on in public schools, extending their union opportunities as well as classroom time for teachers. Obama Motors was taken over by the unions as the private sector was run out. The unions regrouped and took control. Obama soft pitched them and they in turn knocked it out of Taxpayer Park.
Public schools have become not only government owned but union controlled and slave masters of the public. The teachers union is suing to prevent public evaluations. They are claiming that they cannot be held liable for testing scores on standardized tests which are only a piece of the puzzle, tests which they claim the students do not care about anyway. The above NYP headline, ‘What Are You So Afraid Of?’
Boston can no longer afford the benefits packages of their teachers unions. Mr Tyler, president of the Boston Municipal Research Bureau: “It’s time to rethink health and welfare and treat teachers exactly as other employees in terms of benefits… It really ought to be an item on the list in terms of trying to negotiate changes.”
Changes go back to 1968: Mayor Kevin H. White sought an alternative way to compensate teachers, said former members of the contact negotiating team for both the union and management. The first year, taxpayers contributed $50 for each of the city’s 4,500 teachers, according to a 1972 decision by the Supreme Judicial Court.” Last year these costs to taxpayers exceeded $8.4 Million and include a softball league, funeral benefits, legal representation, vision care, dental…, things the private sector has not seen.
While the area is closing schools and consolidating to compensate for budget deficits the teachers union is demanding benefits increases. The goal with stimulus was not focused on the initial spending but on future increases, they are built in. All of these increases must be funded by taxpayers. Socialization is the only logical result, there is not enough revenue to be generated to fund the debt.
Obama keeps talking about job creation, either he understands raping the business community of dollars to be invested in new employees instead of union benefits or not. How much is he interested in your job?
