DNC: What Exactly DO You Stand For?

After the U.S. Department of Labor released the latest jobs and unemployment numbers, DNC Chair and former Labor Secretary Tom Perez made the following statement:

“With slow wage growth, rising health care premiums, and skyrocketing gas prices across the country, Donald Trump’s reckless policies are hurting millions of hardworking families. Trump and Republicans in Congress have been so determined to undermine workers that they held a Supreme Court seat hostage for nearly a year in order to nominate an aggressively anti-union justice, who became the deciding vote in last week’s disgraceful decision in the Janus case.

 

“This is all part of the Republican playbook. For decades, Republicans and their wealthy corporate allies have been chipping away at workers’ rights, weakening unions, and depressing wages – all while giving massive tax cuts to the top 1%. And Janus is their most dangerous attack yet.

“Trump and Republicans in Congress are trying to build a winner-take-all economy that enriches their wealthy friends and saddles working families with the bill. Democrats want to create good-paying jobs and build an economy that works for everyone. And we will continue to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with workers and with our brothers and sisters in the labor movement as they fight for the wages, benefits, and livelihood they deserve.”

So… Faster wage growth, but fewer employed is what they want? And Unions, of course. They LOVE Unions – but, wait: don’t Unions hinder faster wage growth by requiring the same for all?

And what, exactly, are “workers’ rights”? Don’t “workers” enjoy the same rights that every other citizen in the US enjoy?

And gas prices…

When Øbama was in office, their rallying cry was the government had no impact on fuel prices; that it was all controlled by OPEC. Now they appear to believe the government DOES have an impact. Huh. I can understand that, though. Oddly, I saw gas prices go up when Øbama did things like… Oh, I don’t know… preclude any new drilling on US soil or waters, decline to allow the Kesytone XL pipeline to go through, etc.; and I saw them go down when Trump announced an end to Øbama’s war on energy, when he negotiated with certain of the OPEC nations, etc. So I guess they finally figured out that the government DOES have an impact on fuel prices. Great! Learning!

And just who are these downtrodden “workers” who have fewer rights than those who aren’t “workers”? Wait! I know! The “workers” are those who actually have jobs and earn a living, but don’t have the right to the entirety of their wages! But who is oppressing these “workers”? Who are the evil bastards stealing their hard-earned pay? Ah! It’s the government. But how does the government oppress these “workers”? Why, by giving their money away to those who DON’T work while withholding the benefits they freely give away to those who aren’t “workers” from those who earn the benefits for them. By spending the “workers” hard-earned money on ridiculous “scientific studies” which ultimately only benefit those performing the studies. Or paying other countries to hate us (my favorite!). All things the DNC also likes.

And how come all of these DNC politicians always bemoan the millionaires? I mean: they’re ALL millionaires. Why do they hate themselves so?

I guess I have to say it: either the DNC is a front for socialists who cannot STAND to have the people of the US succeed, or I smell bullshit.

Wait! It’s both.
