Barack Obama voted to rob the American people of about two trillion dollars and give it to incompetent bankers. Want to tell me how that’s good for workers?
Don’t fool yourself. Obama is bought and paid for, just like any other politician.
And don’t forget, that when the AFL and the CIO were started, they were whites-only. It was the IWW that led the way on racial equality.
