Union bosses are quaking in their boots. Federal government employees, the most coddled sector in the American workforce, are fretting a republican administration will act upon a righteous anger citizens have at Washington D.C. and its bureaucracies.
For J. David Cox, national president of the American Federation of Government Employees, the stakes could not be higher this year, however.
“God help us all,” Cox told reporters on Monday of the possibility of a Republican winning the White House to succeed President Obama. “This country will be in a serious, serious situation.”
“There is not a Republican candidate that’s running that hasn’t said they would annihilate federal employee unions and virtually every union in the country,” Cox said.
The firebrand leader cited Florida Sen. Marco Rubio’s legislation to ease the firing of employees at the Veterans Affairs Department, Donald Trump’s experience in the private sector and Cruz’s general anti-government rhetoricas evidence of the Republican field’s anti-federal workforce policies.
We all know Washington D.C. is incapable of reforming itself, republican president or no republican president. What these people should really fear is an Article V convention of states. When that happens, these federal government employees and all their cronies will truly feel the wrath of the American people.
