Bernie Sanders Hammers Scott Walker and Rips The Republican’s Attack On Unions

bernie sanders scott walker madison rally

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders stood up for workers and hammered Scott Walker’s back to the past plan of federal union busting.

In a last gasp effort to save his dying presidential campaign Gov. Scott Walker announced that if he is elected president, he will take his union busting national.

Scott Walker plans to elimination the National Labor Relations Board, and he supports a federal right to work law. Walker also would enact the same union busting measures that he put in place in Wisconsin. The sinking Republican candidate said, “Many of the nation’s federal labor laws and regulations have stood as a roadblock to fairness and opportunity, and instead have created rigid, top-down workplaces that don’t really work for Americans.”

In a statement, Sen. Sanders reacted to Walker’s plan to attack unions:

At a time when the rich are getting richer, and everyone else is getting poorer, Gov. Walker’s attack on the trade union movement would lower wages and the benefits that working people receive while making the wealthy and large corporations even richer.

Workers have the constitutional right to form unions, to collectively bargain and to participate in the political process. If we are going to rebuild the crumbling middle class we need a stronger trade union movement, not a weaker one. Gov. Walker’s proposal would move us in exactly the wrong direction.

Sanders was correct. Walker’s plan would decrease economic opportunity while lowering wages and benefits. The only opportunity that Walker’s union busting would create is the opportunity for corporations and billionaires to make even more money.

The plan the Scott Walker unveiled today should be called Koch Increasing Income Inequality Act. One day after CNN’s Jake Tapper exposed Walker’s Koch ties; the candidate unveiled a proposal that is a Koch fantasy come to live. Scott Walker’s vision is of a country with a non-existent middle-class. In Walker’s America, there are two groups of people, the billionaires and everyone else.

Bernie Sanders ripped the mask off of Walker’s agenda and revealed the billionaire puppeteers who are pulling the struggling candidate’s strings.

  1. Non and Anti Union is Un American!! So are the Republicans…UN American! Like I’ve said before and it bears repeating…It’s not Democrats vs. Republicans any more..It IS AMERICANS vs. Republicans!!

  2. Scott Walker is a Kochservative.

    Completely bought and paid for. He’s down to Rick Perry levels in the polls, and I can only hope he’s put down, and for good.

    Piece of schidt.

  3. “Many of the nation’s federal labor laws and regulations have stood as a roadblock to fairness and opportunity, and instead have created rigid, top-down workplaces that don’t really work for Americans.”

    Such as worker’s compensation, wages and hours, workplace safety, whistleblower protections…

    In any event, we probably shouldn’t be taking advice from someone who terribly managed his own state…

  5. Karma is waiting for these Republican scumbags & we must vote these turds out of our government because we cannot allow the Koch Bros to get the keys to the White House & less, we are all doomed except the 1%. Together We Stand. WE MUST VOTE and this is the most important election in our lifetime because when a black man became president all of the ugliness of the former sheep in wolf’s clothing,got naked.

  6. I agree that unions are necessary to keep wages and job positions competitive, but you also have to agree that some of these really big unions become somewhat like the Koch brothers when they begin supporting individuals running for president. Unions need a few regulations to make sure they are keeping the ones the represent in mind when handing over money, but other than a few bad eggs in the basket you can’t deny unions are a part of America and needed to protect the middle class worker

  7. So, if Super-rich Republicans can feed unlimited cash to their ‘Kochsuckers’, why can’t unions support people who will help all Americans, not just the rich???

  8. Bernie Sanders Warns Christian Millennials: Republicans Idolize Money

    “When you talk about issues of children, understand the Republican budget threw 27 million people off of health care, including many children, at a time when many families cannot afford to send their kids to college. At a time when children in America are going hungry, the Republican budget cut billions of dollars in nutrition programs, including money for the WIC program, which goes to low income pregnant women and their babies. And to add insult to injury in that budget, the Republicans provided over $250 billion over a 10-year period in tax breaks to the top two tenths of one percent.”—Bernie Sanders

  9. WTH is wrong with people who still believe in the Koch mantra? I spent a half-hour yesterday trying to explain to ignorant Michiganders that a flat tax was regressive. Have they no common sense? The scary part is that there are a lot of people who just believe whatever Faux News tells them.

  10. Well look like Sen. Sanders has accomplished whatever he was trying to accomplished

    General Electric Co. will move around 500 U.S. jobs overseas to avoid losing business to foreign rivals, a decision the company said was prompted by the lapse of the U.S. Export-Import Bank earlier this summer.

    Thousands to jobs will follow. The US Ex-Im Bank has never lost money for taxpayers.

  11. There was a reason democrats supported FDRs Ex-Im for decades.

    The fringe are so delusional about how the world works and are so dangerously idealistic as they continuously bite the very hand that protects them.

    They are clueless, they yell corportations as they buy cars, computers, furniture, windows and toilets – made by corporations.

  12. …must vent…
    …”Fk” Ayn Rand, and all of her GD STUPID-assed MFing blind followers…”FK” Lyin’ Ryan, for changing the rules so the NON-partisan agency tilts the data toward what HE wants…

  13. Oh, please. Grifters hawking a book, what else is new? My father said, after watching that 90 minutes unfold, live, “Watch the conspiracy lunatics come out of the woodwork on this one”, & of course he was exactly correct.
