Chicago Mayor and former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is under attack by some of President Obama’s top political supporters.
The SEIU has committed half-a-million dollars to a new, anti-Rahm effort. The money was approved by a state council as part of a document titled “Taking on the millionaires’ mayor.” The document says SEIU will brand the Mayor as “the national poster child for Neo-Liberals who are hell-bent on adopting regressive policies.”
The SEIU also alleges the Mayor is adopting the tactics of “Right Wing” employers:
Mayor Emanuel is using the city’s procurement process to take advantage of a loophole in Obamacare to jettison the health care costs of many city contract work [sic]. Essentially, Rahm is doing the same thing to city contract workers that Applebee’s, Denny’s, Papa John’s Pizza and so many other Right Wing national employers have announced they are doing to their workers in the lead up to the implementation of Obamacare.
I hear you. I'm also enjoying watching the cons consume themselves after the US voter declined their vision of a corportist America. The Teabagger DuhMint leaving the Senate in frustration brought a tear of joy to my eye. It was gratifying to see some cons turn on fools like Akin and Mourdock who obviously failed Biology 101 to excel in Mythology 101.
The difference is I'm rooting for the proletariat. The uber wealthy don't need cheerleaders, incentives or tax cuts. To me, a prosperous society is the key to strong, healthy nation. Some cons believe a plutocracy is the answer. Others believe a theocracy will save us. The battle goes on and on and on...
