Haven't we been told for years that the Democrats are the Party of the working man? Of the average Joe? Poppycock.
Michelle Malkin has done a wonderful job exposing just how interested Barack Obama and the Democrats are in helping the working man who doesn't belong to one of their chosen groups (Big Labor):
Consider the real-life horror story of 20,000 white-collar workers at Delphi, a leading auto parts company spun off from GM a decade ago. As Washington rushed to nationalize the U.S. auto industry with $80 billion in taxpayer "rescue" funds and avoid contested court termination proceedings, the White House auto team schemed with Big Labor bosses to preserve UAW members' costly pension funds by shafting their nonunion counterparts. In addition, the nonunion pensioners lost all of their health and life insurance benefits.
The abused workers - most from hard-hit northeast Ohio, Michigan and neighboring states - had devoted decades of their lives as secretaries, technicians, engineers and sales employees at Delphi/GM. Some workers have watched up to 70 percent of their pensions vanish.
After citing the gut-wrenching accounts of actual people who have been targeted and left high and dry from these corrupt actions, Malkin explains how it happened:
Obama's team of auto-crats - stocked with Big Labor-friendly appointees and self-admitted know-nothings about the car industry - decided to "cherry pick" (one Obama official's own words) which obligations the new Government Motors company would assume and which they would abandon based on their own political whims and fealty. Due process and equal treatment of union and nonunion workers be [darned].
Party of the working man? Hardly. This is but one example of the manipulative, corrupt and crooked regime that now governs us.
