The Troubling New Direction of Unions

I come from a family that was staunchly pro-Union in the past.

I remember when unions were vitally concerned with dealing with the management schmucks who made the union members’ lives difficult through overbearing decisions and work changes.  Then the unions stood up to fight for their members and for what was right.

Now the unions appear hell bent on putting those same schmucks in charge of our healthcare.

It is a sad day for the unions in this country that they have embraced a plan that will screw everyone else in the country and, eventually, themselves.

Below the fold are the latest action alerts for Congressmen hiding from their constituents behind the unions that are in their pockets:

Even if Anthony Weiner is NOT your congressman you still have a vested interest in letting any congressman know your concerns.

=====================================
Tea Party Action Alert

Since June Congressman Tim Bishop has been avoiding any public appearances where he might be exposed to dissident opinions on healthcare, cap and trade, stimulus spending, etc…
He has no interest in hearing from his constituents on their fears and concerns over the radical changes he is helping to implement in American society.

His disdain for his own constituents has led him to schedule an appearance outside his district in what he considers to be a safe venue, the offices of the radical SEIU Union in Hicksville, Long Island.

To let Congressman Bishop have an opportunity to hear those concerns, he has so studiously avoided, the Tea Party Patriots of Long Island have scheduled a Tea Party outside those offices to coincide with his appearance there.

Mr. Congressman, You can Run, But You can’t Hide.

Who: Tea Party Patriots of Long Island (multiple groups)
What: Hands Off Healthcare Tea Party
Where: 100 Duffy Avenue, Hicksville, NY 11801 (one block south of the Hicksville LIRR station)

When: Thursday, August 13, 2009,  12:30pm to 3pm

Bring flags and your wonderfully creative signs to express your views on the measures this Congress is undertaking to undermine America.
Tell your friends, neighbors, co-workers and those who would be most at risk under those measures to come out and join us.
Feel free to pass this email on to like minded individuals and groups.
Even if Tim Bishop is NOT your congressman you still have a vested interest in letting any congressman know your concerns, the fact that he has come outside his district makes him fair game for your expression of free speech.
We have only the month of August to put public pressure on our congressmen to halt the juggernaut of socialism descending on our nation.
Is protecting the ability of your parents, grandparents and children to enjoy the finest healthcare system in the world worth a day off work?  Only YOU can decide!

For our report on the June Tea Party at Tim Bishop’s Town Hall that started this movement in action go here and here.

  1. What is critically important is that Americans have an open debate on healthcare reform. No matter which side of the debate you are on, it is important that the debate happen. It is a hallmark of the American system – freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, freedom of speech.

    The name calling and various invectives diminishes the stature of the debate. This is what freedom is all about. This is what so many have lost their lives fighting for and defending!

    The debate on health care itself must resolve three critical issues:
    1) The right of the people to decide what form of health care delivery system they want;
    2)Understanding the real cost of what they are agreeing to — and that it isn’t a cost shift and a series of hidden taxes
    3)That access is provided to people who are willing to contribute to the system in whatever large or small way they can
    4)That there is serious thought put into how we maintain and improve the delivery of care.
