    New York State Teamsters Rally Against Soda Tax

    Job Losses, Higher Costs for Working Families Would Result

    (WASHINGTON) – Hundreds of Teamsters from throughout New York State rallied today at the capital in Albany to oppose to the proposed soda tax. A soda tax would result in declining beverage sales that are delivered by Teamster members in the state, causing wide-spread job losses.

    The Governor’s proposed soda tax is the wrong fix,” said James P. Hoffa, Teamsters General President. “Not only does the soda tax hurt consumers, it will hurt small businesses and result in further job losses.
    We are encouraged that the legislature has stood strong in the fight against this job-killing tax, but we know the fight is not over,” said George Miranda, President of Teamsters Joint Council 16, New York, N.Y., which represents Teamsters working in New York City, Long Island, Westchester and the Hudson Valley.
    More taxes will not make our economy healthier,” said John Bulgaro, President of Teamsters Joint Council 18, Albany, N.Y., which represents Central New York Teamsters. “In fact this tax will eliminate jobs and increase costs for families on tight budgets.
    I wonder if the Dems got the memo?

    James Hoffa? Did they finally find him?
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Actually, I'm glad they are. Of course, Oblahblah won't listen. Real people don't matter to him.

    Teamsters are the one union not solidly in the Dems pocket. Teamsters not always but usually back the conservative candidate.
    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    It's James P. Hoffa and not James R. Hoffa.

    OT: I campaigned for Hoffa in 1996 and 1998 against Carey and met him at a rally in Philly. The man is passionate about what he does. That said, there is no more corrupt organization on this earth as the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. Well, the NEA maybe but not by much.
    The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.

    ahh...ok...that's why my local Teamsters backed Obama and blew over $1 million on his campaign when the people who paid the dues (my fellow employees') jobs where in jeopardy and didn't lift one fucking finger to help us when the plant closed.

    Fuck Teamsters and all Unions
