Budget Cuts, Democrat-Style
Posted by: McQ on Tuesday, July 17, 2007

According to John Fund, the Dems have actually found one agency whose budget they're happy to cut:
The new Democratic Congress has finally found a government agency whose budget It wants to cut: an obscure Labor Department office that monitors the compliance of unions with federal law.

In the past six years, the Office of Labor Management Standards, or OLMS, has helped secure the convictions of 775 corrupt union officials and court-ordered restitution to union members of over $70 million in dues. The House is set to vote Thursday on a proposal to chop 20% from the OLMS budget. Every other Labor Department enforcement agency is due for a budget increase, and overall the Congress has added $935 million to the Bush administration's budget request for Labor. The only office the Democrats want to cut back is the one engaged in union oversight.
Heh ... yeah, "oversight" is important, except when that oversight works against a favored special interest, huh Dems?

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

You’d think, since this agency has helped out the rank-and-file union workers, that the Democrats would fully support it. I guess the Dems aren’t so much the party of union workers as they are the party of union bosses.

Check the collective back pockets of the AFL-CIO President, Teamsters President, etc, and you will find the Democratic Party.
