GOP Hypocrite of the Week: Elain Chao
Buzzflash has a website gophypocrites.com and I found a posting on her continued hypocrisy in terms of the American worker and the policies and practices of the Bush Regime.
Enclosed is the post and the URL. Have fun!!
Welcome back to the BuzzFlash.com GOP Hypocrite of the Week.
The slogan you'll find on the home page of our Secretary of Labor, Elaine Chao, would be enough -- in and of itself -- to make her our Hypocrite of the Week. It reads, "Getting people back to work is what this Department does. Giving people hope in their future is our job."
The Bush administration has the worst job creation record since Herbert Hoover, yet Chao marches on like some Soviet poster extolling a worker's paradise.
In addition to her cynical cliche duties, Chao is also another lackey shoveling the Bush daily pile of hypocrisy. For instance, this week, her department warned unions not to use pension funds to oppose Bush's social "insecurity" plans. The unions were also warned not to "hire or fire service providers primarily on the basis of their positions on Social Security legislation."
Are you finished laughing yet?
Here's an administration that used taxpayer money -- our money -- for more than 60 days to sell a plan designed to enrich stock and mutual fund brokers at the expense of American workers. The Busheviks have spent millions and millions of our dollars hiring public relations firms to sell their bait-and-switch S.S. poison bullet, including the public financing of illegal video news reports that are just more White House propaganda.
Bush's Press Secretary refuses to respond to inquiries about the amount of taxpayer funds that they are spending on their partisan initiative. But, if you include the travel costs of Bush and his minions and the event expenses, we are probably talking well over $100 million in total costs. And, we repeat, that's our money -- yours and mine.
So for Chao to tell the unions to watch their step about how they spend the money earned by workers concerned about their own retirement, well that's enough to make you barf.
And for that reason, we present Elaine Chao as the BuzzFlash GOP Hypocrite of the Week.
Until next week, remember our motto at BuzzFlash.com: So many Republican hypocrites, so little time.
Catch up with you soon.
