Trumka: No short-term debt crisis, we must spend more on jobs

via CNS News:

The United States does not have a short-term debt problem, just a “jobs crisis” that can be solved with greater government stimulus spending, according to AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.

Trumka and his ilk are really no different than Bernie Madoff. After all, isn’t their whole idea of government jobs like a Ponzi scheme? They claim they are creating new tax payers by getting the government to spend more on jobs, but really they are just playing with the same money. In order to keep a Ponzi scheme working, you need lots of new cash constantly flowing in from new tax payers. Otherwise, you eventually create a system where the spending needs outweigh the supply of cash generated from the current taxpayer base and the whole thing collapses.

Which is what Trumka really wants and why he continues to spew this nonsense.

    You’ve got that right. The goal is collapse.

    Perhaps Comrade Trumka should show this video to his union lemmings.

    Trumka is nervous because less stimulus spending means less for him from his buddy Obama.

    Trumpka yet another “useful idiot”. If obama manages to collapse our system, the idiots like Trumpka that helped obama destroy America will be no better off than any other American. Trumpka will find that obama’s promises were empty. There is no honor among criminals!

  • This guy is as evil as dear leader and all the rest. Unions are killing us about as quick as the rest of the marxists. In a time which most figure is a recession (I know that some bubble people in the media and government think we’ve come out of one) some think we’re on the brink of a depression. Whatever one wants to call it, with so many hurting people who have no employment prospects, these union thugs are demanding more money for their supporters. Good luck on that.

    Do those on the left really buy into this? Seriously,these people on the left are destroying everybody lives. It does matter who you are because you are being affected by this. Look at the black american unemployment numbers. I thought Obama was supposed to help them. There are a few people getting their wallets stuffed while the rest of America is struggling big time.

      The one’s already have bought into the system. Now the masses have to be convinced and it is not happening.

      These communists are looking pretty desperate with their screaming, outrageous demands.

    Trumka and O’ both remind me of a Boy George song:

  • WRONG, WRONG WRONG, WRONG!!!! and you know he knows it himself! He’s just following the alinsky rule book for the ultimate goal of fabian socialism. But this time no one is buying that crap!

    Newsflash, TRAMPka, spending money you don’t have is not an investment, it is just debt. You can’t have an “investment” when there is no money being gained! Jeez, where did this guy go to school? UDA (University of DumbAss)??

    SPEND more on JOBS is a standard OX-e-MORONIC stance, but that is the standard trunkful of Trumpa and his inverted world of s c a m m i n g.

    Let’s also expose the silly game he’s playing with distraction here.

    You borrow money all the time, because you are investing in the future.
    Therefore the Government should do the same. Is that correct, Mr. Trumka?

    You seriously are claiming that when I go to a bank, and put up my property as collateral, which goes to them if I default, and also agree to make payments plus interest or be declared to be in default… all of that is equivalent to the government reaching into my pocket, to take my money, which I earned, and giving it to you and your goons, or to somebody you deem “worthy,” with no repayment, no property as collateral, and no liens. You’ll pi$$ it all away and we get nothing in return.

    You seriously want us to believe those two situations are the same?

    Howbout you and your goons get a real job, and earn your own money?

    Listen to this fat stalinist. If this fat bastard ever got his hands on real power he would put people like us in work camps.

    So let me get this straight Comrade Trumka says the Government needs to borrow and spend more money from China and that will magically create jobs. And tax the sh*t out of the American people…oh sorry tax the sh*t out of “the rich.” Welcome to the USSA. Obama and Trumka spreading misery equally while blowing sunshine up your ass.

    I think the idea is if those selfish capitalists would just stop being so greedy and give people jobs then we wouldn’t have this crisis.
