I've heard this commercial: Paid for by the postal workers UNION... The unions 30-second ad describes the enormity of the job postal workers do, and ends with a question and response: Ever wonder what this costs you as a taxpayer? Not a single cent." TOTAL LIE!! Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) asked the union to cancel a union-sponsored television ad that has been airing on CNN, MSNBC, and FOX News. In a letter to President Cliff Guffey dated July 11,2011, the day the ad began airing, Issa called the ad misleading, and in a July 13 posting on the Web site of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which he chairs, Issa asked the union to cancel the ad campaign. The reason is THE Postal Service borrows from the Federal Financing Bank (FFB), a government-owned corporation under the general supervision of the Secretary of the Treasury, provide the Postal Service revolving credit lines of $4 billion! At year-end, the current estimated market value of our debt was $1,800 million in 2004 and $7,283 million in 2003. Debt consists of $1,800 million in cash drawn on our line of credit with the FFB. Financial Statements WHERE did the FFB get their MONEY??? TAX Payers!!! Government Sponsored Loan-Sharking Bank of Congress: Using Your Tax Dollars to Pander to Special Interests and Fund Pet Projects at Taxpayer Loss. The U.S. Postal Service (which had $3.8 billion subsidy in 2009) selects an average of 1,125 employees daily to sit in empty standby rooms. They are not allowed to work, read, play cards, watch television, or do anything. The annual cost is $50 million! Because of the American Postal Workers Union! And guess how this ad campaign paid for? UNION DUES! Who pays the dues... UNIONIZED Postal workers! Guess who donates 90% of their donations to Democrats ? Unions! Guess who writes the bills that authorizes paychecks for the 1,125 employees that sit,in empty rooms at a cost of $50 million a year? Democrats that receive donations from unions that pay for the commercials that CONVINCE you "oh...no.!.no.! NO tax payers money being used"! And the circle jerk is completed with tax payers left paying the tab!
