I am very troubled by something because when you start being cynical about powers that be, you begin to predict their sinister moves. Too often predictions are proved out.
That fear is that, somehow or somewhere, the corrupt and contemptible politicians would try to use this aid package or another one to benefit unions. Unfortunately that doesn’t sound so far-fetched. But how do I mean?
It is entirely speculative but I mean an intentionally direct scheme to try to bail out union pensions. Look, we’ve known the numbers for years. Those same powerful unions will have their hands out since businesses are getting help.
Their allies in Congress, on your dime, are more than willing and capable enough to try to pull it off. Shutter to think!
Full disclosure: I am a vested pension member of the Teamsters. Our local has been in restructuring or Chapter 11 for decades now. (Hard to think of the time they weren’t) We know the condition of public employee pensions. All very powerful lobbying voices.
Well, if that happened, all hell would break loose and shred what little confidence people have for DC. But Democrats wouldn’t care about that one bit, to make it even worse.
I mean just the idea they attempt some bailout to unions will be a disaster, whether it has any chance of happening or not. Call it a wild hunch.
For my and America’s sake, I hope my guess is wrong but I don’t put it past them. The Left has already tried all the other stuff on their agenda. Do you think unions are going to sit back while all this exponential spending is going on?
Union bailout…. Hoffa, can you hear me?
