Union Honcho: Spending Cuts Retarded

Some ‘new civility’ from the American Federation Of Government Employees, via YouTube:

Union Boss John Gage Calls Those Who Believe in Cutting Spending "Mentally Retarded"

"When people say: well, we just have to pay less in wages, whether it is private sector or public sector — I think they are  mentally retarded to say something like that."

And we thought the ‘R-Word’ had been banned from polite society.

But bear in mind, Mr. Gage is the president of the largest union representing public servants government employees. The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) represents over 600,000 employees of the federal government, and about 5,000 employees of the District of Columbia.

It is affiliated with the AFL-CIO, which of course is headed by that other deep thinker, Richard Trumka.

One Response to “Union Honcho: Spending Cuts Retarded”

  1. wardmama4 says:

    Perhaps it is Mr Gage who is umm, retarded – as spending cuts are 1) necessary to balance the budget, 2) necessary to cut a economy destroying deficit, 3) necessary to lower taxes so that businesses can actually keep/hire workers and 4) who but a Union Thug would classify ‘spending cuts’ to wages? At. All. Ever.

    The Unions – another group that I pray rots in hell.
