    The Dems must be proud of their union friends putting 14k people out of work.

    Don’t have to be unemployed very long to become fodder for the oddballs ConserveGov serves.

    And I ’spose if they could be kept there until the next election that would be good?

    Tell me that again after January. I bet you unemployment will be 8.5 or higher.

    Why would anyone but a penny pinching R be happy about unemployment?

    Until Pres. Obama stops being a Con and becomes a Liberal we shall still be in financial straits.

    Yes 18k jobs lost because union bosses told their employees not to accept a paycut during O’s continuing horrible economy.

    If the Republican Tea Party types in Congress continue to refuse to compromise, you may very well be correct. However, the American people will NOT be blaming President Obama, but the kinds of people that you support!

    Actually I’m neither, but if people choose to eat twinkles or cheeseburgers or whatever they want, so be it. People risked their their lives to have those freedoms. If you want a government that holds your hand, you have plenty of places to move to.

    “The Dems must be proud of their union friends putting 14k people out of work.”

    You’re wrong on both accounts. I read it’s around 18,000 workers. The unions had agreed to pay cuts and other concessions each time the company went into bankruptcy protection. How many times did the senior management take pay cuts to keep the company afloat? What is the cost of executive pay versus that of the union workers? You just don’t know, do you?

    Hostess has clearly been mismanaged in recent years after having grown through the previous decades in ways that make its structure, including its labor force, especially complicated. But the end game is that private equity firms came in to do what they do: squeeze profits for their own multimillionaire investors at whatever cost to workers and to the company itself. Who cares if tens of thousands of workers are left unemployed and without the means to retire? Not Silver Point or Monarch, as long as they get their money. Who cares if Hostess exists tomorrow? Not Silver Point or Monarch, as long as they get their money.

    “What’s happening with Hostess Brands is a microcosm of what’s wrong with America, as Bain-style Wall Street vultures make themselves rich by making America poor.”

    @Robert Landers

    So you are still going to blame an R for Obama’s so called leadership? The guy is not and never has been a leader. If he was he would work with the R and not the my way or highway. That is why I believe Obama should get everything he wants in the next year, just like he did the 1st 2 years. then maybe the dumb masses like you apart of can see what a failure he is!

    I didn’t realize you were gay.

    @ConserveGov

    Really? Where did you get that number? Every where I see the Unions gave up hard won and earned items to save the businesses and still had them move off shore.
