It’s amazing the stupidity of Jimmy Hoffa suggesting that the tea party folks are destroying American workers jobs, that they are somehow pawns led around by the Koch brothers and they are to blame for “right to work states” Huh?
The tea party started in February of 2009, all of the 22 Right-to-Work states were instituted prior to that date.
The tea party members did not invoke the free trade agreements that leave us with a lopsided trade deficit.
The tea party people did not start congressional over-spending
The tea party is not responsible for Café standards on automobiles
The tea party did not place restrictions on energy companies driving costs up nationally
The tea party did not threaten voters at the polls or partner with an organization that illegally registered Mickey Mouse and the entire Dallas football team to vote.
The Tea Party does however endorse reduced government spending, opposition to taxation in varying degrees, reduction of the national debt and federal budget deficit and adherence to an originalist interpretation of the United State Constitution
Maybe Jimmy Hoffa should take a look at these statistics before spouting off.
Percentage Growth in Real Personal Income (1999-2009)
Right to Work States 28.3%
Forced-Unionism States 14.7%
National Average 19.5%
Cost of Living-Adjusted Per Capita Disposable Personal Income
Right to Work States $35,543
Forced-Unionism State $33,389
National Average $34,256
Here’s another little tidbit of info for Jimmy; leading the pack in Big Labor’s violence category is the Teamsters. Since 1991, they have had 454 incidents of violence and they have twice as much as the group in 2nd place.
The comments this past weekend by these “democratic operatives” shows the level of urgency that this party is experiencing. The Democrat’s cannot run on their record so they need to attack anybody and anything to distract from that record.
When a conservative group of ordinary America’s concerned on which way their country is heading are called “terrorists, racists and jihadists” then they should know that they are the right track, especially when the name-calling comes from the extreme left wing, such as Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and the number one race baiter in this country, Al Sharpton.
