Bloated Budgets

NLRB does less, but wants more

July 11, 2013

At a time when many Americans are having to tighten our belts and do more with less, President Barack Obama thinks government should be an exceptio....

If you read my comments WN, I no longer engage the minion directly. Clearly, he has a partisan agenda of spreading the propaganda put forth by others. My comments are a public service meant to counter his inaccurate statements.

AaronS, I believe I told you this before, don't bother asking Denver questions. He usually won't answer your questions but he tries to bully you into answering his. He rarely has a clue what he's talking about but he likes to talk anyway. Just let him prattle on. He doesn't know any better. So sad.

I see a lot of huffing, puffing and name calling but I don't see any comments that would hint to signs of intelligent life out there.

It's a shame, I really wish there were someone who could offer a decent debate from the liberal perspective.

Little man, how are you going to educate anyone when you can't even make a de end argument using your own source?

Section 7805 of the IRS code gives the Treasury Department the authority to enforce law through issuance of rules and regulations, which is how the Obama Administration is delaying the Employee Mandate. There is speculation though about whether he move is valid due to the timing based on Wording in paragraph 2. Regardless, Congress can withhold funding for the ACA if it is not enacted as the law passed, which was with the Employee Mandate.

Were you smart enough to research just a little, you could have explained what authority the delay fell under.

Instead, you huffed and puffed and tried to play tough.

Sorry little man, I don't live in a stick house. Take your tripe elsewhere.

Aaron: You are not worthy of my time or effort to educate and improve your ignorance. Perhaps, you can have someone else explain the rules & regulations of IRS 7805{a} to you. Political POWERS are very clearly defined in 7805{a} And sense 7805 is IRS Rules & Regulations, I have to assume that ""SOME"" CONGRESSIONAL BODY {in the past} has LEGALLY ADOPTED those rules & regulations and modifications to implementing new laws. GET OFF YOUR STUPID BENGAZI TYPE, RIGHT WING/TEA BAGGER LIES..... DUH!

Now try again little man. Article and Section of the Constitution that authorizes the President to edit current law.

If you can.

Little man!!!

Sorry dude but section 7805 applies to rules and regulations, not laws which have been passed by Congress and signed into law by the President.

I know the Treasury department is trying to cite that extinct but it doesn't meet the standard. If Boehner had a pair, he'd refuse to fund ONLY the ACA as it was signs into law and nothing less.

Thing is, I don't think he has the cahonas to do that. I think he's as cowardice in challenging the White House as you are MD.

Aaron & Random, As for the Presidents AUTHORITY question that you continuously harp upon. Which I have tried to ignore your STUPID and OUTRAGEOUS LIES. I refer you to the longstanding administrative authority to grant transition relief when implementing NEW LEGISLATION like the ACA, Administrative authority is granted by section 7805{a} of the Internal Revenue Code. This authority has been used by ""MANY"" PAST Administrations to delay or postpone the implemention of new laws. NOW SHUT YOUR RAMBLING LYING TRAPS....

I wasn't even aware of the illegal tactics of the Food and Commercial Workers Union until this story. What I find most fascinating is despite the fever pitch of hysteria trumpeted by the minions of the fanatical left of how horrible Wal-Mart is, their associates by and large reject representation from the UFCW. I mean, really, when Herr Marx NLRB tells the union they've went too far, how bad must it be.

By the way MD, I'm still waiting on the Article and Section of the Constitution that allows the President the authority to edit law. Does your righteous indignation. And moral outrage prevent you from looking.

Thanks for proving my point there little buddy! See, we wouldn't even need the National Labor Relations Board, if you didn't have big greedy corporations like Wal-Mart, now would we?

While presidents can refuse to enforce laws that they believe are unconstitutional, they cannot do so with laws that they consider constitutional. This White House went to court to defend the ACA's constitutionality and won, which makes this waiver even more suspect. Obama must go to Congress in order to amend the statutes in question, which would create an even bigger political problem, considering that the House will have to OK these changes. With Obama's ever lowering poll numbers, Ol' Bumbling Boehner could really be a stick in the mud on this. Read a synopsis of how this bill was passed(without be read). It's almost as outlandish as the election of your beloved ONE.

It appears another poster is mistaken. The only interaction between the NLRB and Wal Mart was when the NLRB essentially sided with Wal Mart during the United Food and Commercial Workers illegal picketing of Wal mart stores last year. The NLRB held the charges in abeyance and will dismiss them in 6 months so long as the union ceases their illegal picketing, according to NLRB General Council in a press release dated Jan 31.

Wonder why a liberal would make false statements regarding the NLRB.

I’m still waiting on the Article and Section MD that allows the President to edit current law. I’m familiar and all I can find is Article 2 Section 3, which states, among other things, the President “shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” How is ignoring part of a law fall within those guidelines. You’ll have to provide us a link with the hidden Article you must be referencing.

Hey Denver, here's an idea. Go build a 100,000sqft building, finish it, and stock it 70,000 different items, hire a crew to do the stocking, run the registers, do the cleaning, and the maintenance. Then you can pay all your workers as muck as you can and you too can be a major corporation and fend off bankruptcy with hopes of catching on and winning the battle. Wishing that entry level jobs paid enough to provide the American Dream is the liberal pipe dream. Vote with your pocket book and see if Walmart cares.

Here's an idea! If big corporations like Wal-Mart wouldn't treat their employees so poorly we wouldn't need such a large budget for the NLRB. Now would we?

If we're going to have the Agree & Disagree buttons, maybe we should have line-item Agree & Disagree. Manydems, Suttle, I was reaching for the Agree button; but then I read through to the end & I couldn't. An experience I often have; you 2 just pushed me into saying it.

While you're finding the Article and Section of the Constitution MD that authorizes the President to edit current constitutionally passed laws, perhaps you can answer one other question.

Below, you've feigned outrage over Republicans blocking Obama appointments to the NLRB. I’m curious, were you as equally outraged during the Bush years when Democrats blocked numerous Bush appointments and prevented recess appointments by having Jim Webb and other local Senators bang the gavel daily, sometimes for as little as 10 seconds to keep the Senate in session.

I also wonder if you realize the difference between the Bush recess appointments, the Obama recess appointments and why the latter are unconstitutional.

So you will have no problem quoting Article and Section of the Constitution that grants the President authority to edit current laws MD.

Do you agree with the President in that Obamacare is flawed and the mandate should be delayed despite the Presidents unconstitutional actions or do you believe the law should be enforced as it is written? I absolutely stand with the President in his extension and not implementing this portion of this law at this time. The ACA {OBAMACARE} is in it's "INFANCY". Any new legislation of this size takes MANY, MANY, years to refine and revise. It has never been touted or proclaimed to be perfect in it's original form. I realize that you and other Right Wing/Tea Baggers are getting more and more desperate to uncover some great political tragedy of the Obama administration, SO TRY AGAIN Aaron.... I don't want to hear your CRAP about the President has usurped his Constitutional responsibilities in in delaying that mandate. THAT'S STUPID!

I'll take your response to mean you agree the ACA is law, passed by congress and signed by the President in accordance with the Constitution.

One section of that law requires, dare I say MANDATES, that employees with 50 or more employees who work 29 plus hours per week "affordable" health insurance or pay a fine per employee.

As you have bemoaned Congressional actions regarding Obamacare, I am confident you are aware that the President has usurped his Constitutional responsibilities in in delaying that mandate.

Do you agree with the President in that Obamacare is flawed and the mandate should be delayed despite the Presidents unconstitutional actions or do you believe the law should be enforced as it is written?

It should be no surprise that Obama wants to strengthen the NLRB if their actual caseload has decreased in the last 20 years as the article says. Additionally, the article fails to mention that our US industrial base, that was a great portion of the NLRB'S caseload 20 years ago, has been EXPORTED to foreign countries by the slimy corporations, intent on raping the American Workers. The abuse of the American Worker by these greedy, corrupt, giant corporations is a well known fact today. Of course this BIASED RIGHT WING article will never admit the corruption and abuse of the "WORKING CLASS"

This editorial fails to tell the whole story. The Nation Labor Relations Board has been hindered by the Republicans who are refusing to vote on President Obama's appointees...and via a recent court ruling, the decisions of the current Board may not stand because of the legality of President Obama's recess appointments. The result is that justice has been denied to the American worker. Big money lawyers and big money political contributions have cheated the American worker out of fair treatment at the work place. It is now almost useless to seek justice from the NLRB by those who feel they have been mistreated or that their employer may have broken the law. The American worker and the middle class will soon join the have nots. The majority of Americans will never live the American dream. The American worker now can only look forward to misery and a minimum wage.
