Taxpayers May Bail Out
Fat UAW Benefits

... with Obama administration intervention to package a Chapter 11 filing for Chrysler (and maybe GM soon enough), money from taxpayers who enjoy nothing comparable to the lifetime health care benefits, layoff protection, and retirement pay of the UAW, will be funneled to the UAW's labor aristocrats.
It is precisely these lavish benefits which drove the American Big Three into the corner they find themselves in.
It is bad enough when the Democrats screw the taxpayers to save the huge home funding corporations that have been lavishing campaign contributions on the Democrats (first time Senator Barack Obama being the biggest recipient of all - now how did someone who has just become a Senator rate such huge contributions?). Now the Democrats are going to pay off the UAW and their labor buddies with taxpayer money (of course labor too lavishes huge campaign contributions on Democrats, again focusing a disproportionate amount to the junior Senator Barack Obama!).
See a theme here? Barack Obama is the most corrupt politician who has ever been elected President. Of course his adoring minions do not see it as corruption since it is all out in the open. When did stealing become okay if you do it openly?
