    I wonder what Obama has to say about that since he is trying to avoid it on an alleged bipartisan basis.


    AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka in a speech on Thursday will rail against cuts that have been proposed to social insurance programs, including Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, as part of a “grand bargain” between the president and Congress, arguing that the whole “fiscal cliff” thing is a “manufactured crisis.”

    “There is no fiscal cliff,” Trumka will tell the National Mediation Board Conference in Washington on Thursday, according to prepared remarks. “What we’re facing is an obstacle course within a manufactured crisis that was hastily thrown together in response to inflated rhetoric about our federal deficit.”

    Waht's the matter? Did Obama's biggest supporter just make him look like a liar?

    They say that because they are in the Union. WTF do they care? Union people seem to be stuck-up assholes that dont give a damn because they are going to get theirs. Regardless

    What's funny is that so far not one Obama supporter wants to comment. That's because they either have to agree Trumka is a uninformed liar or Obama is because there is a fiscal cliff and Obama said that many times.

    Tough choice between calling Obama a liar or Trumka, I suppose. Maybe all Obama supporters believe like Trumka that there is no fiscal cliff.

    Good point. Never looked at it that way. Now that you mention it, I won't be surprised if someone did get to him.

    Trumka must be wearing the same rose-colored glasses as Obama.
