Richard Trumka, head of the huge AFL-CIO union, visits the White House 2 to 3 times a week and talks to the administration everyday. Andy Stern, former head of the SEIU, was the second most frequent visitor to the white house in the last two years. SEIU Treasurer, Anna Burger, was the most frequent visitor. I suppose after spending over $400 million to elect Obama, the last two years have been payback. Oh, just so you know, Stern is NOT a registered lobbyist. His constant visits to the White House are in direct violation of the "registered lobbyist" laws. But hey, who cares? This is Obama and anything goes! Watch Trumka Trumpet his visits in the video.
Obama has all the time in the world for his progressive friends but there are at least 6 Obama appointed cabinet heads who have never received a phone call or a summons for a White House meeting in the last two years. They've never met once with their "boss." It's all on the video. It's hard to believe a sitting president, even one as inept as His Holiness, would not meet with ALL of his cabinet heads regularly. Maybe he's just too busy golfing and vacationing to be bothered.
And now Organizing For America (Obama's PAC) and the Enforcer-In-Chief, Obama himself, are diligently working to mobilize and bus union goons to WI, Ohio, Indiana, MA, and other states where governors are simply trying to bring fiscal sanity to their states. The reality is that unions and Obama are trying to trump the will of the voters who overwhelmingly spoke in 2010. Want to guess what Trumka and Stern talk about when they visit the White House 2-3 times a week?
And this from a president who said during the campaign, "Lobbyists won't find a job in my White House," and then immediately hired Patrick Gaspard, one of SEIU's top lobbyists and now welcomes Trumka and Stern with open arms.
This is corruption to the core. And we are stuck with it for 2 more years.
In the meantime, Mr. Above-The-Law-President, BUTT OUT OF THE STATES' BUDGET ISSUES! WHY DON'T YOU CONCENTRATE ON BALANCING WASHINGTON'S BUDGET, WHICH YOU HAVE FAILED MISERABLY AT??
