In yet another controversial quote from the secretly taped video (filmed at the Plutocrat fundraiser) that keeps on giving, Plutocrat in Chief Mitt Romney talked about how he’d like to fire masses of federal workers, and his anti-union sentiments:
“I wish we weren’t unionized so we could go a lot deeper than you’re actually allowed to go.”
I have a high degree of doubt that union contracts would stop him.
The AFL-CIO Blog chimed in, emphasis mine :
Romney teases his high-value, campaign cash-cow audience with this: “But we can find a way.” Maybe he would dust off his old Bain Capital playbook.
Here’s a question for Romney. If it weren’t for those darned union contracts, how many job safety or food inspectors, border patrol agents, air traffic controllers, Veterans Affairs doctors and nurses and other hardworking federal employees would you fire?
