Big Labor Democrats are up to their old tricks. It seems that in their minds, they can think of no better way to celebrate Veterans’ Day, than to “h[o]ld off final passage” of a sure-pass “stand-alone bill containing veterans money . . . so they could meld it with the Labor-HHS [Health and Human Services] measure,” which reportedly contains some “. . . 2274 earmarks worth $1 billion. . . .” Now, reportedly, in order for the veterans to get their money, the measure would give $1.5 million of the people’s money to the AFL-CIO hierarchy’s so-called “Working for America Institute” and $2.2 million for the AFL-CIO bosses’ “Appalachian Council.”
During this election year, I wonder what the Union Bigwigs are going to use the extra money for?
