Barack Obama Overexposed

Class Warfare cited again
At his core, he is a radical leftist who seeks to dismantle capitalism and the achievements of the Reagan revolution - low taxes, deregulation and the reassertion of American exceptionalism.

In fact, like most ideologues, Mr. Obama is quite open about his intentions. Despite forging a popular tax deal with Republicans, the president in his speech returned to the cardinal principle of the progressive left: class warfare. He vowed that the Bush tax cuts would not be extended permanently, saying the only way to curtail skyrocketing deficits effectively is to raise taxes on “the wealthy” - those making more than $200,000 a year.

The Democratic strategy has been to erect a bloated Franco-German entitlement state, which is marked by high spending and burdensome regulatory oversight, in order to compel huge tax increases. Obamacare, the stimulus package, the massive expansion of government power - all of this has led to runaway deficits and a fiscal reckoning. Mr. Obama understands that European-style spending inevitably results in European-style taxation. He is the consummate anti-Reagan.

Taming the Oppressive BigGov Beast

Show-Me voters weigh worker-choice alternative to forced-labor unionism
Cape Girardeau Sen. Jason Crowell wants to let voters decide whether to make Missouri a "right to work" state. This legislative session, and for the past several years, Crowell has filed legislation that would prohibit union-only workplaces.

"I think it is in the best interest of the entire state when you look at job growth and standard-of-living data, right-to-work states are where the leaders are," Crowell said.

Under current Missouri law, employees at some companies have to pay union membership dues in order to work as a condition of their employer-union contracts. Crowell's Senate Bill 109 proposes a statewide vote in August 2012 whether to eliminate that situation.

There are 22 right-to-work states, including Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Arkansas and Tennessee. Oklahoma was the last state to adopt right-to-work in 2001.

Governments in right-to-work states save millions of taxpayer dollars by not having to having to follow prevailing wage laws, Crowell said.

"I have been told that when Missouri is compared to Arkansas in per-construction-mile costs for highways, Missouri is four times higher than Arkansas. Arkansas is a right-to-work state, Missouri is not," Crowell said. "I have been told that school districts, if they were exempted from prevailing wage laws, that they could save threefold in construction costs. This would save taxpayers millions in Cape Girardeau if they didn't have to pay union prevailing wages on the current school construction projects."

Must. Unionize. TSA. Now.

Huge trove of forced dues, fees too important for secret balloting
Transportation Security Administration employees could have union representation as early as April.

In a consent meeting held on Friday, the Federal Labor Relations Authority tentatively set the TSA union election to begin March 9. The American Federation of Government Employees and the National Treasury Employees Union have been vying for exclusive representation of 40,000 TSA employees.

Balloting is tentatively scheduled to run until April 19 and will be conducted online and via phone. FLRA, which oversees federal labor-management relations, will count the votes on April 20. Final dates will be determined once TSA receives final language describing the bargaining units, according to AFGE Membership and Organization Deputy Director Cathie McQuiston.

ObamaCare's Shameful Double-Standard

Special-interest corruption creates two Americas
Yesterday, the Deparment of Health and Human Services announced it had granted more than 500 new waivers to Obamacare’s requirement that health plans have annual limits of no less than $750,000. This annual limit requirement climbs to $1.25 million next year and then to $2 million.

The reason these exemptions from the law are needed is that Obamacare forces all health insurance consumers to over-insure themselves and pay high premiums as a result. Without the waivers, many companies, non-profits and unions would simply drop their health plans. As of 2014, the waivers will no longer be available — at least, that’s the way the law is written.

It is worth noting that there are 166 union benefits funds now exempted from this requirement, which account for about 40 percent of the exempted workers. This means that although there are only 14.6 million unionized employees in the United States, and 860,000 of them are already exempted from this provision of Obamacare.

Abusive Union-Only Construction Cited

Typical state thugs shaft non-union contractors, workers with PLAs
An Idaho Senate committee OK’d legislation that would strengthen Idaho’s Right-to-Work laws that prevent local and state government entities from being required to enter into labor agreements with contractors on construction projects.

The Senate State Affairs Committee approved legislation opposed by unions and backed by the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), which represents merit contractors, which are often non-union. The plan was backed on party lines, with Republicans favoring the plan and Democrats opposing it.

Sen. John Goedde, R-Coeur d’Alene, called the measure a job creator that would fix some of the abuses in contracting around the state.

Obama Invokes Most Shameful Era

But New Prog Boss fails to credit Woodrow Wilson
Did Obama give a plagiarized speech? Let’s run these down in the order Felzenberg gives them.

Early in his address, Obama said that he wanted the nation he leads to be a “light to the world.” The last president who set such a mission for the nation he led, and in those exact words, was Woodrow Wilson.
