New Jersey SEIU Boss Exposes Himself: Why, Yes, We Do Use Union Dues To Buy Politicians
October 2nd, 2012
Back in July, ACORN-aficionado James O’Keefe exposed New York union bosses caught on tape showing their appreciation for the concept of taxpayer-funded “shovel ready” jobs–that is the idea of digging holes only to fill them back in and getting the government (taxpayers) to fund the make-work project. Well, Mr. O’Keefe and his hidden camera team have been at it again–this time exposing how how beholden Democrat politicians are to unions like the SEIUs.
In his latest video, O’Keefe catches New Jersey SEIU boss Rahaman Muhammad explain doing business with Democrat politicians like New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez.
According to a press release from O’Keefe’s Project Veritas explains:
In a previous report released in July, top New York union bosses were caught in candid discussions regarding a federally funded program known as “Green Jobs, Green New York,” with one leader calling much of the $112 million program “bullshit.”
“This is significant because labor unions are some of the biggest beneficiaries of taxpayer-funded jobs,” says O’Keefe. “If they’re intentionally propping up paper jobs, then they’re complicit in the fleecing of taxpayers.”
The latest video from Project Veritas captures Newark SEIU President Rahaman Muhammad laying out in explicit terms the nature of the relationship between his union and lawmakers like Democrat Senator Robert Menendez.
Project Veritas: “So that means you’re going to get the union dues…”
Project Veritas: “…to your campaign.”
SEIU: “Exactly! It benefits them.”
Language Warning: If you are offended by union bullsh*t, you may not want to watch this video. However, if you are not offended, be sure to watch the whole thing.
O’Keefe’s video is just another example of how far union bosses have gone in buying the Democratic party and, in part, why the SEIU is putting 100,000 boots on the ground to re-elect Barack Obama.

ObamaCare’s New Public Health Workforce Corps
Lurking within the recently-released Reconciliation bill is a brand new corps of government workers.
Page 911 of the 2010 Reconciliation PDF. Section 2231.
‘‘Subpart XII-Public Health Workforce
2 ‘‘SEC. 340L. PUBLIC HEALTH WORKFORCE CORPS.
3 ‘‘(a) ESTABLISHMENT.-There is established, within
4 the Service, the Public Health Workforce Corps (in this
5 subpart referred to as the ‘Corps’), for the purpose of en-
6 suring an adequate supply of public health professionals
7 throughout the Nation. The Corps shall consist of-
8 ‘‘(1) such officers of the Regular and Reserve
9 Corps of the Service as the Secretary may designate; ….”
It’s not Nationalized Health Care. It’s a Health Corps!
“Them what comes in with me now, get a big piece of pie.Them what come in with me later, get pie.Them what don’t come in with me, will get good government.”
A trusted blogger emailed me the PDF of the reconciliation bill above, which we now know is but a placeholder. The Universe turns out to have a wicked sense of humor; the Corps begins on page 911 of the Bill.
It speaks of regular and reserve Officers, scholarships, loans, obligated service, individual contracts, training centers, the traditional income redistribution scheme of grants and grant proposals, etc. The debt repayment provisions are especially attractive to certain sectors of our population. It appears to be an indentured servitude gig. You sign up, do your part for nationalizing health care and the Corps will get the American taxpayer to foot the bill for your training and educational costs and retire your debts. Of course, if pinned down, I’m sure this will be characterized as a draft, a proposal, need to modify, hasn’t been reconciled yet or any of a number of ways to weasel the simple truth that until Nancy Pelosi votes on it she won’t have any idea what’s in this ‘Bill’.
Do YOU think that SEIU supports Communism? NO? Think again…..
Why Are Andy Stern and Anna Burger of the SEIU Partisan To China’s ACFTU (Ties To Chinese Communist Party)?
Do YOU belong to the AARP? YOU might want to rethink that too.
Obama Administration Spends $20 Million Dollars to Hire PR Firm Porter Novelli to “Sugar Coat” Obamacare. Who is Bill Novelli?
AARP and SEIU are connected to United We Fail; an advertising push to advocate Obamacare
Novelli is a recognized leader in social marketing and social change and has managed programs in cancer control, diet and nutrition, cardiovascular health, reproductive health, infant survival, pay increases for educators, charitable giving, and other programs in the United States and the developing world.
William D. Novelli is CEO of AARP.
William Novelli is co-founder and president of Porter Novelli.
Bill Novelli is tied to Andy Stern of SEIU as co-producers of “United We Fail” Campaign
From the Divided We Fail website:
Andy Stern, president of SEIU, Bill Novelli, CEO of AARP, and John Castellani, president of Business Roundtable, joined Mike Cuthbert, host of Prime Time Radio (all pictured here) for a discussion of these issues.
“AARP, Business Roundtable and Service Employees Union (SEIU) launched Divided We Fail to engage the American people, businesses, non-profit organizations, and elected officials in finding bi-partisan solutions to ensure affordable, quality health care and long-term financial security – for all of us.
The need for health and financial security is something we all share, not just for ourselves, but for future generations. It is the promise of America.”
To Seniors Worried About Healthcare: Wonder WHY AARP Supports The Obama Healthcare Bill? It’s Connections HERE
But what Americans don’t know is… that the AARP brand dominates the private Medicare insurance market.” American Spectator David Catron March 30, 2011 The American Association for Retiree Plunder
“For those of us who toil in the vineyards of health care finance it has long been obvious that the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) is, for all intents and purposes, an insurance company disguised as an advocacy group. Thus, it was something of surprise when AARP announced its support for ObamaCare in the fall of 2009. Why would a financial conglomerate so dependent on insurance-related revenue endorse a bill that promised to wreck the health insurance industry? Then, the penny dropped. One of the ways the Democrats proposed to “pay” for their health care law was by cutting the Medicare Advantage (MA) program by $200 billion. This would inevitably drive many carriers out of the MA market and herd millions of seniors back to the more expensive coverage of traditional Medicare.
How would that benefit AARP? Traditional Medicare imposes much higher deductibles and co-pays on its beneficiaries than does MA, and the vast majority of AARP’s revenue derives from sales of “Medigap” policies that purport to cover those out-of-pocket expenses. In other words, the AARP endorsed a law that does real financial harm to seniors in order to reap a crop of new customers when ObamaCare guts Medicare Advantage. And it gets worse: Most of the victims of this cynical strategy will be low-income and minority seniors. According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), nearly 60% of MA beneficiaries have annual incomes of $10,000 to $30,000. Moreover, nearly 30% of Medicare Advantage enrollees are minorities, compared to about 20% for traditional Medicare.
AARP received “an $18 million grant in the economic stimulus package for a job training program that has not created any jobs. ” More to the point, the Democrats granted AARP a long list of special dispensations from the most onerous features of ObamaCare. As Chris Jacobs of the Republican Policy Committee has noted,AARP received exemptions from the prohibition on pre-existing condition exclusions and the $500,000 cap on executive compensation for insurance industry executives.
Jacobs also points out that the Democrats exempted AARP from the tax they imposed on insurance companies in general, “even though according to its own financial statements AARP generated more money from insurance industry ‘royalty fees’ than it received from membership dues, grant revenues, and private contributions combined.”
