Many Americans, conservative or not, should be angry that unions now hold so much influence over elected officials and Joe Biden that the Teamsters Union, long fraught with ties to the U.S. Mafia and organized crime, is receiving a $36-billion bailout, under the $1.9-trillion American Rescue Plan, after years of mismanaging and stealing from their members’ pension fund and the new revelation that the fund was essentially insolvent. This is an act by the executive that takes the hard-earned tax dollars of private citizens to give to a group of collectivists, socialists, and outright criminals whose leadership should be placed behind prison bars.
Please recall that in 2020, labor unions donated $27.5 million to Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.

Look at the timing of this, taking place on December 8, 2022, just a week after forcing a deal on the railroad unions that soured many union workers against Biden. Sean O’Brien, Teamsters president; Liz Schuler, AFL/CIO president; and Marty Walsh, U.S. secretary of labor, stood by his side during the announcement. It’s clear as day that this was Joe Biden rewarding his political allies, at the expense of ninety percent of Americans who are not members of any union. It also forces conservatives and independents to pay for the sort of collectivism that goes against their conscience and beliefs, as well as the very principles this country was founded upon.
