AFL-CIO Chief: Raising Taxes Creates Jobs

According to AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, the best way to create jobs is to raise taxes, specifically ones for gas.

I guess that’s still the same solution from the left……… raising taxes and big government. :doh:

How did that nearly one trillion spent on the "stimulus" work out? Didn’t Barry promise big government would mean unemployment wouldn’t go higher than 8%? Didn’t exactly work out that way.

Raising taxes on gas actually hurts the poor and middle class, since it malkes everything from food to clothing cost more.

Isn’t the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result? :wall:

What’s the best way to get Americans back to work?
Raise taxes, according to AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. Specifically, he wants to raise the federal gas tax as a means to fund infrastructure spending. "We need a dedicated source of revenue to create infrastructure in this country," he tells Aaron Task in the accompanying clip.
