Trumka Says He Talks to Obama Weekly
Many Americans are just coming to realize the power partnership between the Democrats and the unions.
You'll remember that in the first year Obama was in office, former SEIU chief Andy Stern was the most frequent White House visitor.
This is from 2004, when John Kerry was the Democratic presidential nominee.
At that same convention, Stern and SEIU pledged to spend $40 million for more than 2,000 organizers to work full time against President George W. Bush's re-election bid in 17 key battleground states. That figure was later augmented by an additional $25 million which SEIU spent on voter-registration, voter-education, and get-out-the-vote initiatives. At Stern's behest, the union also supplied some 50,000 "volunteers" from its member rolls to aid the aforementioned organizers during the days and weeks just prior to Election Day.
The information isn't new, but it takes a while for folks to absorb these alignments and accept how corrupt our government has become.
