"Union fat-cats...myth or reality?"

So...you think labor unions are run by cigar chomping "Union Fat Cats", who receive outrageous salaries and benefits, while living a life of luxury comparable to Saudi Arabian Princes, lording their unrestrained power over the entire United States of America... all on the backs of the union-enslaved workers they represent. Here's your chance to prove it.

The real problem facing the Republican Party’s mantra today is that the coal industry itself says that there is no war on coal, and they are behind the President’s plan, albeit with slight reluctance, to reduce carbon emissions from plants and invest more money into so-called “clean coal” technology.

Boehner has fallen into the “those who don’t understand history are doomed to repeat it” trap. As it turns out, the coal industry and their lobbying groups have already admitted that the 2012 “war on coal” talking point was an abject failure.

A spokesman for the National Mining Association recently lamented the following in the industry publication “Coal Age” (courtesy of The Huffington Post):

Anyway, ‘war on coal’ never resonated with much conviction among ordinary Americans. For them, the EPA keeps the air and water clean, their kids safe.

More republican crappola and tiredbrain drinks the kool-ade ! Surprise ! Do you ever actually look things up or do you just blindly repeat what you hear from your republican propaganda ? The phasing out of fossil fuels has been on the books for years , time just ran out !Power generating stations were supposed to use the time they got from buying pollution credits to up-grade to clean coal but instead they screwed the pooch and ran them till the time limits ran out !Now just what do you suppose the politics of the owners of these power plants is ! I'll give you 2 guesses and the first one doesn't count !

No#1 Tiredbrain , I haven't admitted to anything ! No# 2 I'll take my education over an ill bred redne ck any time or anywhere ! No#3 You and your red brethren can hope all you want but the fact are your republican obstruction is glowing for all to see and working people everywhere aren't happy with that strategy ! No#4 Union folk all know that greedy companies and management are the cause of our decline and there wouldn't be any unions left if not for them fighting like heII to protect workers everywhere not just the union shops ! As usual you have shown your own social shortcomings and have tossed your own ignorance out there for all to see !
