Or is he just very, very, tired? We know how much Obama and the democrats support unions and their right to strike for more money, better hours, more benefits, whatever reasons the members choose. The President supports unions’ right to strike and shut down any work place, doesn’t he? He believes that workers have a right to walk off the job if they want something more and management won’t comply with their demands. Right? In his remarks today he seems to belie that attitude:
“Everybody here just does their job, right? If you’re working here and in the middle of the day you just stopped and said ‘you know what, I want to get something, but I don’t know exactly what I’m gonna get. I’m just going to stop working till I get something – I’m just going to shut down the whole plant until I get something’ – You’d get fired, right?
Cuz the deal is, you’ve already gotten hired. You’ve got a job. You’re getting a paycheck. ..And so you also are getting the pride of doing a good job, and contributing to a business, and looking out for your fellow workers. That’s what you’re getting. It shouldn’t be any different for a member of Congress.”
Congress is working everyday. The House has passed many bills over the last three days so I’m not sure what he’s trying to say. Perhaps he’s just really, really, tired. Or something. More here and here.
