    U.S. threatens to rescind stimulus money over wage cuts

    The Obama administration threatens to rescind billions in stimulus money if Gov. Schwarzenegger and lawmakers do not restore wage cuts to unionized home healthcare workers.

    Any of you still believe Obama gives a **** about the Economy? That he's out to help bring the country back stronger then ever?

    You've got blinders on. This entire fiasco has been, as we've been saying over and over and over, power. And gee, a Chicago politician strong arming in favor of a union?

    It's here, for everyone to see... what Obama really is, who he is, and what he really wants.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I heard this one today; being from the great Liberal State of California, it is just laughable watching Liberals fight Liberals over trying to cut spending to avoid bankrupting the State.

    You just can't fabricate a comedy better than this. BUT, what the SEIU is really saying is this; you cannot CUT the pay of any union member, but if you lay them off, that is okay.

    The State was trying to SAVE jobs by having them agree to pay cuts; now their only recourse will be to let people go. We call this Liberal irony.

    Meanwhile, where are those 5,000,000 NEW jobs Obama promised? And if we do the math, the economy has shed about 6,000,000 since he took office, so in order to create 5,000,000 NEW jobs, 11,000,000 will need to be created now.

    I can't wait till the stimulus bills start to work; any day now right? ::wink wink::

    Yes folks, the denial, naiveté and ignorance it takes to believe in the "Community Organizer" is self evident to all but those desperately trying to deny reality.

    Sorry man, Unions give unions a bad name.

    They are supposed to be temporary entities and not persistent leaches.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Obama is just the logical step for a Union.

    But is no one seeing the real danger here? Obama is out to over ride the states powers.

    Here's a radical idea:

    Kill all federal income taxes, and replace it with a levy against the state governments instead. Let the states work out for themselves how best to apportion the taxation among the taxpayers.

    Basically, instead of having the states as clients of the federal government, return the federal government to its proper position as the client of the states.

    It's exactly this kind of idiocy which prompts Atlas to shrug.

    Considering my father a Vietnam Vet is a union worker Im going to say no. Obama panders to the scumbag leadership of unions not the actual workers themselves.

    No, unions give unions a bad name.

    Their support of Obama is just one aspect of what's wrong with them.

    Whatever happened to just good-ole collective bargaining of the early 1920's?
