It’s time for some straight talk about the “Middle Class”. Oh, there’s talk. Congress talks about the middle class, T.V. commentators talk about the middle class and the President talks about the middle class. But are they the same middle class? I think not.
The middle class once meant those folks making more than minimum wage, folks that owned small businesses, folks that worked in skilled labor, folks that had a 3 bedroom, 2 bath in a quiet neighborhood, with 2 cars in the garage and could choose to take weekends off. But that isn’t the middle class of Barrack Hussein Obama.
No, Obama’s middle class is the “union wage earners” that have a choke hold on government, a death grip on big business and direct conduit to every penny taken from taxpayers and given to less than 2% of America, rebuilding the infrastructure under the Porkulus Act.
Yes, my misinformed, naive friends, unions receive every penny of the multi-trillions spent on the economic recovery, paid for by the 88% of non-union America. And under a second Obama regime that union number would increase dramatically, while those that pay for it would shrink, not because they ‘want’ to be union, but because they would have to be union to get a job.
You see, most union workers don’t want to, but need to to get all the representation that guarantees them healthcare and pension benefits paid for by the rest of us. Proof of it was the recent repeal of the union dues paid by the State of Wisconsin ‘directly’ into the union coffers, rather than voluntary contributions by the membership. Dues collection plummeted right after the repeal, because the union faithful is a minority of the membership. The rest just want a job, not a bunch of goons paid for by the boss, extorting unsustainable pension and benefits, killing America's economy.
So the next time you hear Obama proudly exalting the “middle class” remember he is glorifying the very union membership that is doing his dirty work and bidding in this, and the last, election. We should all remember that the union of today isn’t the union of your grandfather. Your grandfather wanted fairness, Obama’s unions wants control and power over the rest of us.
We are So Screwed
