AFL-CIO Union Chief: The Best Way To Create Jobs is to Raise Taxes

Posted by iusbvision on February 26, 2011

This is from the same man who said that government should take over all private business, who speaks in front of communist revolutionary groups, and has a long history of violence. Trumka talks to the White House every day and visits twice a week – LINK.

What’s the best way to get Americans back to work?

Raise taxes, according to AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. Specifically, he wants to raise the federal gas tax as a means to fund infrastructure spending. “We need a dedicated source of revenue to create infrastructure in this country,” he tells Aaron Task in the accompanying clip.

“We need to create jobs. The best way to do that is through infrastructure development.” Simply maintaining the existing infrastructure in this country will cost $2.2 trillion over five years, according to the American Society of Civil Engineers. That doesn’t include Obama’s objective of high-speed rails and green energy projects.

 

Oh yes, we can tax ourselves into prosperity, and we can spend trillions on more stimulus packages most of the money goes to government unions to make this man even more wealthy. Sickening.

    This is the face of evil and of totalitarianism. Why this guy can’t be convicted of some blatantly treasonous act he has committed, and removed from the arena is just baffling to me. I think our side is always just too genteel. Like greasing the ways for the Ruth Bader Ginsburgs, and Elena Kagans we will have decades of mischief from instead of sidelining them forever, for example.
