Another Union Bailout Considered in Congress




this is a video story


according to the video, congressmen are introducing
legislation to bailout Union Pension Funds at the expense
of the American Taxpayer. However, this bailout is under
the guise of a new jobs act. Time to read the fine print
folks.

How many folks besides me are just fed up with this ??
If the funds disappeared, why isn't somebody going
to prison for stealing them ???

I am confused about several things here. One the bill is from March why the sudden interest in it. And two I do not see to much of anything about a bail out in the bill Create Jobs and Save Benefits Act of 2010 in fact it seems be more of way for Pensions to shift money around and not pay certain benfits on time. Maybe I am just missing something. And is that a recent video because this bill seems to have died in committee back in March.

well now I am confused as well.

I first saw this vide on Fox's video page
at the bottom link. And it was dated



August 17, 2010

that is TODAY !!! So i thought this was brand new.
I went to youtube to see if it had been put up there
so I could embed the video and found it.

It ALSO had the same date



August 17, 2010

so why would I NOT think this was brand new
with the dates posted ????

Maybe we ought to be asking Fox News
that question instead of me

OMG

I get it now.

This did happen back a ways but it is being
shoved around as a new video cuz the
midterms are in 12 weeks and the GOP
propaganda comes out in full swing once
again to remind the voters of these certain
congressman who supported this bill.

Sorry


at least I'm glad we got it figured out

Hmmm I do not know why they are talking about it then. I really have no idea where they came up with the billions of dollars either. Could be some blogger just found it started talking about it so they just tossed it on the air. I think that is pretty much a staple of all the 24 hour news channels at this point. They do not want to bother looking for news themselves so they find some blogger or other random group and put them on the air. If what they say turns out not be true, who cares its just an opinion piece anyway. Just seems a simple search for the bill would have told them what was in it and that it was old and dead anyway. Then again with elections coming up it could just be a way to rile people up.


Edit: looks like we came to the same conclusion lol

this is a prime example of a News Network
following a propaganda agenda if I have
ever seen one.

And I apologize to ATS for playing into
that propaganda as it was unbeknown
to me when I posted it. I'm sorry

Okay. I see this is old new news.

But hey, while I'm here...I know what it's like to lose a pension after 25 years working under a contract that guaranteed me one and having no one step forward to help. I don't wish that hell on anyone. So instead of being bitter about losing mine and mad that the government is bailing someone else out and not me, I'll choose to be glad that there's a chance that others are not going to lose their pensions too. And glad there's some focus on in-country problems.

And if that also keeps a few more dollars or jobs from going overseas, even better.
