AFL-CIO leader Richard Trumka told reporters yesterday that their is no fiscal cliff.
Current TV reported:

“Digging in for the looming battle over deficit-reduction, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka will make organized labor’s case Thursday against cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, declaring the doomsday debt talk in Washington a “manufactured crisis.”

“There is no fiscal cliff,” Trumka says in prepared remarks to the National Mediation Board Conference in Washington on Thursday. “What we’re facing is an obstacle course within a manufactured crisis that was hastily thrown together in response to inflated rhetoric about our federal deficit.”

    Trumka is living in an alternative world. Sure tell that to the chinese who owns us.

    Trumpka’s brain is as fat and out of shape has his body. I loved it when this bloated idiot was talking tough about TEA Partiers a while back. Yeah… I’m terrified of some union fatty who can’t do one overhand pull up and who can’t seen his own “manhood” without the aid of a mirror. What a putz!

  • rolling thunder

    Of course not! America is in fine financial shape. Gorbachev said the same thing about the Soviet Union in 1987. Today the Soviet Union can only be found in history books. In about ten years, without rectifying the present financial precipice, the USA will be history as well.

    2-Good one!
    BTW,if it is trumped up,why the demands by Obama that taxes be increased?

  • Granny

    Tell that “manufactured crisis” bit to your union members at Baker’s Trumpka . . . . what part of no more money on the money treee does he not understand?

    And BTW, the CHINESE may be buying our air force base in the Azores, now that Obama has shut it down.

    another child abuser speaks. I call trumka and all libes child abusers because the are piling up huge debt for our children. they are putting in regulations to crush growth and initiative. they are happy for illegal aliens to come in and lower wages to get the votes.

    there actions are abuse and they should be called on it.

  • Mahdi Al-Dajjal

    Great! Then Boehner has absolutely NO REASON WHATSOEVER to raise the debt ceiling one stinking dime.

  • Look-Out

    He’s a LIAR like all the rest on the left. It’s what they do.

  • retired militaryq

    Since there is not fiscal cliff then they wont mind if we go over it.

  • Noovuss

    What a block of communist lard!

  • democraps suck

    That coming from a fat coomie thug…what a brainless twit

  • SeniorD

    The Boss has spoken. Since this pint sized Socialist bully commands Obama’s domestic economy, only non-Union, Freedom Loving Conservatives need worry. Makes one wish for the days of Lane Kirkpatrick.

  • Maria

    Yeah just like Hostess wasn’t going to close up shop.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    “There is no fiscal cliff,”

    All the more reason to sit back, do nothing, and let it happen.

    Video: ‘Investigative Journalist’ Warns Banksters:
    ‘Tonight We Will Pay, But Tomorrow We Will Slay’

    November 7, 2012

    Obama Administration Facing Massive Federal Lawsuit

    [A lawsuit seeking the return of $43 trillion (with a “t”) and an audit
    of all the TARP programs by an independent receiver has been filed
    against senior members of the Obama Administration and the New
    York group known as the “Banksters”.


    The Plaintiffs have established the location of the $43 trillion
    of laundered money in a criminal racketeering enterprise
    participated in by the following individuals:

    Eric Holder

    Tony West

    Kamala Harris

    Jon Corzine

    Robert Rubin

    Timothy Geitner

    Vikram Pandit

    Valerie Jarrett

    Anita Dunn

    Robert Bauer

    The lawsuit alleges that the Obama Administration actively borrowed
    money from these “Banksters” to fund his political campaign in this
    2012 Election and has not pursued any criminal charges against them.]


    Krim murders: Nanny kills children of CNBC executive – report

    CNBC Exec’s Children Murdered, 1 Day After
    CNBC Reports $43 Trillion Bankster Lawsuit

    [Since this information was surprisingly revealed by the mainstream
    news organization there has been a very suspicious and deadly
    fallout at the CNBC headquarters.

    Within hours the original page for the article was taken down, and
    CNBC senior vice president Kevin Krim received news that his
    children were killed under very suspicious circumstances.

    It seems that the murder happened first
    and then the page was removed later.]

    i know a few gay men were silenced for
    Obama, but children?? can this be true??

    Oil Executive and Renewable Fuel Researcher Assassinated

    [Nicholas Mockford, a 60 year old British executive for the oil company
    ExxonMobil has been shot dead in front of his wife in an assassination
    – style killing in Brussels.

    He was shot three times after leaving the Da Marcello
    restaurant in Rue de Beyseghem at around 10pm on
    Oct 14.

    The reason why news of this murder is just breaking now is because
    Belgian police imposed a news blackout and the areas government
    kept the story tightly under wraps.

    The fact that such a high profile figure can be assassinated in a public
    place without any news appearing for two weeks just goes to show
    you how easily it is to manipulate public perception, hiding things from
    the media as well as the general population.]

    Baghdad Bob had more credibility that this Trumka goonion di-k.

    To be in a union, one must never have taken an economics course, hell, not even an algebra class.

    So how many jobs are the unions now going to create to show just how magnificent they are? Oh wait, they’re bloodsuckers not creators.

  • Marcy

    All righty then….nothing to worry about. No need to raise taxes on anyone. Bush tax cuts are working just fine. Job numbers are just a figment of our imagination. 23-24 million un or under employed….move along nothing to see here. No need to raise that debt ceiling either. This is great news. Best news I’ve heard in 4 years! Thanks Trumka.

  • dwd

    This is the same genius blaming Romney and Bain for Hostess shutting down.

    HELLO?! Unions want too much, more than Hostess can give, period. Businesses cannot operate like the government, with a continual trillion dollar deficit and tens of trillions of dollars of debt. It doesn’t work.

    Good for Hostess for not backing down. Watch the unions and Democrats spread the blame and point the fingers at everyone but themselves.
