Maxine Waters, perennial most corrupt politician (4 times) in Washington was giving a speech to the Teamsters on how they need to vote for Democrats even though the union has been hurt deeply by the policies of the left for 8 years.
Not just the teamsters but all unions. The pipefitters waited for 8 years for Obama to approve the Keystone Pipeline to put a large number of their members to work but that never happened. President Trump pushed it through early in his presidency. Investment in this country halted under the policies of Barack Obama and now is taking off under Trump, putting tens of thousands of union members to work on new construction as companies are investing heavily in the United States thanks to the lower taxes on businesses.
So, Maxine Waters’ empty words should not resonate among the rank and file, although you can bet the heads of the unions will fall in line. As we speak unions in Seattle Washington is on the warpath against liberals who want to tax businesses for every worker they hire. Amazon stopped a major project they were working on throwing thousands of union employees out of work.
“I want you to know this: whether it is healthcare, or whether it is food stamps, or whether it is any of the issues dealing with the least of these, and whether it issues about whether or not our government and our elected officials are going to support the right to organize and support the right to bargain. It has not been Republicans, it is always Democrats. We’ve been there for you,” Waters said in the comments first reported on by The American Mirror.
“We’re gonna stay there for you. And damn this president! We’re not going to let him destroy organized labor.”
Two-time loser Hillary Clinton, who is a huge fan of Waters, said:
“You know, maybe I don’t need to say this because it’s pretty obvious. We are living in challenging times. We’re living through a war on truth, facts and reason, watching as racist and white supremacist views are lifted up in the media and in the White House.”
“But despite it all, there are signs of hope and resilience. And much of that is being led and shaped by black women like my dear friend Maxine Waters.”
It remains to be seen if the union rank and file will share the love.
