Trumka Continues Wake Up Call to Democrats

One thing Progressives have been trying to give Democrats, a wake up call. We are sick and tired of voting for the lesser of two evils simply because we have nowhere else to go. We work our hands to the bone at election time and contribute our hard-earned money. For what??

To be stabbed in the back and treated like the illegitimate stepchild when it is time to fight for policy. We are completely disgusted with the cowardice and complicity that insures that every single time we are the only folks who are not represented . . .

"For too long, we've been left after Election Day holding a canceled check, waving it about-'Remember us? Remember us? Remember us?'-asking someone to pay a little attention to us," recalled AFL-CIO union leader Richard Trumka, who like many union leaders was frustrated with the failure of the Obama administration and Democrats in Congress to pass the Employee Free Choice Act and other needed labor law reforms. 

Trumka added: 

"Well, I don't know about you, but I've had a snootful of that shit!"
