SEIU descends on DC for 'economic fairness,' gifts GOP with lumps of coal

Fresh from verbally and physically assaulting work freedom advocates in Lansing, SEIU members are taking their act to the streets of D.C. The greedy goons are in town to weigh in on the looming fiscal cliff. Their solution? “Economic fairness.” In other words, preservation of entitlements and even higher taxes for the wealthy. They’re using the hashtag #jobsnotcuts in an attempt to convince the public that they care about job preservation. But taxing wealthy job creators into oblivion will only hurt the working class.

Except punishing the wealthy is not the way to help the middle class. Targeting a segment of the population for its success is a great way to ensure that no one is successful.

Perhaps he should teach his Bubba the values of hard work and responsibility. No one is entitled to the American Dream.

Actually, Ms. Ball, Medicare is set to run out of funds all on its own. Republicans like Paul Ryan are trying to fix a broken program.

What these greedy protesters don’t seem to understand is that if wealth is eliminated, everyone will be worse off. But the truth doesn’t matter when it’s inconvenient.

SEIU also took it upon themselves to play Santa Claus, hauling lumps of coal to deliver to the naughty GOP for resisting redistributive policies:

Something tells us Santa wouldn’t agree with their reasoning.

Too bad they’re not using those sacks to draw attention to the huge number of jobs, many of which are union jobs, that are at stake because of Obama’s war on coal.

For a group so averse to wealth, it’s amazing how forcibly they demand that everything be handed to them on silver platters.

House Speaker John Boehner is the chief object of their affections:

We’re not sure what they have against Speaker Boehner. He’s already demonstrated an openness to the idea of raising taxes on wealthier Americans. At this point, conservatives are likely more hostile to Boehner.

With so much at stake, the last thing our government should be doing is taking advice from the SEIU. “Fairness” for all means justice for none.

    Seriously, these people are parasites.

    I wonder how much it costs to bus these poor, misguided folks around.

      Their carbon footprint must be huge! Maybe Al Gore can make them the subject of his next environmental documentary.

        I was wondering if that was actually coal in the sack, as I don’t think he’d be carrying it so easily.

        No one told the union thugs that they aren’t supposed to even mention coal.

    I guess the GOP can always keep themselves warm by burning all that coal–and honk off Obamuh and the SEIU in the process.

    These pariah will be even more upset when Sequestration kicks in.

    Or when Democrat state budgets are trimmed once ObamaCare comes up to speed.

    This is what happens when Obama’s “Pay for Play” party attains a level of power. And blissfully screws all those hard working, dues skimming slobs who got them there.

    Don’t they have jobs? How do all these union workers get time off to protest???

      Hi, Denny:

      I would imagine most of these “protesters” are currently employed, but are using accrued Annual or Sick leave time. Both are given out incrementally at each pay period and increase after a set number of years. To be used throughout the year.

      Many state and federal employees also fall under what’s called “Use or Lose”. When either or both leaves exceed a set amount. The excess is usually used between Thanksgiving and New Years.

      The problem these “protesters” have is that they don’t understand that tax dollars pay their hourly wage or salaries. They really don’t produce anything that stimulates the economy or helps it flourish.

      That is their job.

    I thought the Dems wanted to get rid of coal?
