Through No Fault Of Their Own!

Why didn't the democrats make butch lewis retroactive to before 2014? Didn't the members of the 70+ MEPF's that went bankrupt before 2014 deserve their full pension Too?

Democrats didn't give a rats ass about MEPF's. All they cared about was votes so they could turn America into a socialist hell.

I suppose you think democrats care about Black Lives. Trivia question. What has been around longer? The national debt clock or the death clock in Chicago.
You seem to know more about what the Democrats believe than anyone else? Are you envious (Envious means feeling, full of, or expressing envy—a mostly negative feeling of desire for something that someone else has and you do not. Envy is not a good feeling—it can be described as a mix of admiration and discontent. But it's not necessarily malicious. Envious is very similar in meaning to jealous) of them?

I think when you are faced with an unpleasant truth you are suppose to laugh like an idiot. State that you haven't been to Europe either.:1036316054:
 
Are you saying you intend to leave this socialist hell and move to Europe?
I live in paradise, no need to move to Europa. I'm saddened the PENSION WARRIORS hate Americans inner city dwellers so much they voted for biden/harris. Defunding the police/carnage in the inner cities was a small price to pay for butch lewis. After all how can the dems get gun control unless they run up the death count.

If I had a dollar for every lie that comes out of your mouth I would be a rich man and probably wouldn't need my pension. Go spew your political opinions in the right forum, I am almost positive you will get the feedback you are looking for. :6781:

As you know ROADI every time you get correspondence from your pension fund, you are informed of your maximum insured benefit. 100% of the first $11 dollars, 75% of the next $33 dollars for a total maximum benefit of $35.75 dollars. For the last 7 years the PENSION WARRIORS have engaged in selling their vote, in exchange for an insurance amount they didn't pay for. Strait out vote buying by the dems. The big loser in this political graft is the average American taxpayer.

Boy, those "PENSION WARRIORS" you speak of must have super human powers of mind control to be able to sway a USA Presidential Election in their favor. Fortunately for all of us here on Trucking Boards, we have you to inform us of this radical group to keep us in the loop. LOL!!!

Ok I have to respond. Yes you are right I do get correspondence from my pension fund and it states what you said. As a matter of fact I just received one Saturday telling me the fund is insolvent and as of July 1st my pension will be cut 66%. Am I happy,no. Did I sit back and cry about how am I going to survive,no. I got involved with other Teamster brothers and sisters and for the last 7 years tried to get the people in Washington D.C. who are supposed to be there to look out for the American workers who elected them to represent all of the American people not just the corporations that donate million of dollars to their reelection funds to see what was happening to millions of workers who were about to lose their hard earned pensions because they turned over our pension funds to Wall Street firms to protect our money from the "so called mob". How did that turn out? Seven years is a long time to plead with Congress to at least come up with an idea to help with this urgent matter. All we got was a lot of lip service and no action. If they moved on the Grassley bill instead of constantly stalling with excuses it might have passed. But in reality the Republicans in the House and Senate didn't want to touch any legislation regarding the pension issue. Again 7 years my friend. I didn't sell my vote to the Dems, I vote my concience and my concience told me to vote for legislation that would help me and millions of other people keep their pensions and live the rest of their lives with dignity. If that's wrong so be it, but I don't think so. Haters will be haters and that's what you are my friend. In your next life find a job that pays you a pension and you won't be so enraged that we got to keep ours.

Your employer paid insurance premiums for $35.75. The reason your pension fund went broke is because the Teamster and company trustees didn't do their job. The ultimate cause of failure of your pension fund is you. You would never vote for a Teamster officer who told you, you would have to take less! They knew 25 years ago the pension funds would go broke without changes to accruals to suggest otherwise makes you to be a liar or a fool.
 
VERY WELL SAID there Roady!! And I will be the first one to say THANK YOU for everything you did as well as the others to find a solution for this pension crisis that hundreds of thousands of working Americans were facing. By the way, are you one of the one's Bubba was talking about that used Jedi Mind tricks to turn the Presidential Election to the Democrats favor? If so, are you for hire? I would like you to use your powers on Bubba to guide him to the appropriate forum for his political crap he keeps spewing on here. Quote me a price and I will let you know if it is within my budget. On second thought, it probably won't work on him as I assume you must first have a brain to have mind tricks work.

No Steward of the Rock, no Jedi mind tricks here. I and most of the people affected by this injustice being done to hard working people just did the best we could to educate any Senator or Representative in our Congress to at least come up with a solution to our problem and put it up to a vote. Nobody did until the Butch Lewis Act was voted on in the Reconciliation Vote. I am an Independent voter who votes for people who look out for the middle class workers who keep this great country going. The Democrats came up with a plan to right a wrong and they got my vote and I for one am very appreciative towards their actions. If that's drinking the kool-aid then I'll have another. Remember people your vote counts use it and let those in Washington D.C. know why you sent them there and you can remove them if they ignore you for 7 years.

And there it is!! Our problem, not the taxpayers problem. Why is it our problem? Because millions of us did nothing to secure our future. Depending on others to pay your bills is never a workable plan. Why is it not a taxpayer problem? Because the taxpayer was not a party to our union contract. The taxpayer promised us nothing.
Teamster members and negotiators have always had a choice. Money for health insurance or money for pensions. You always choose insurance. You demand no premium, no deductible, no personal responsibility health insurance and then complain because pensions are underfunded.
Banned for Life said, "They knew 25 years ago the pension funds would go broke without changes to accruals". Absolutely correct. Investment income in the '80s and '90s forced trustees to raise pension payouts to outrageous levels. $3500.00 a month is more than $20 an hour to not work. Add $2500.00 a month Social Security and you are at $35 an hour, more than I made working. 30 and out so you can collect for more years than you worked. What could possibly go wrong?

Another disgruntled teamster. Or at least you think you are a teamster. You got yours so screw everybody else. Nice guy, I wonder how you would feel if the shoe was on the other foot. I pay my own bills my friend, actually I have a pretty good credit score. Haven't missed a payment my entire life. Big deal I know. Guess what I'm a taxpayer too. I didn't cry when my tax dollars are sent to other American workers or companies that needed help or as you say bail outs. There is plenty of blame to go around for the conditions of many multiemployer funds but don't blame just the teamsters for it. You know the truth even though you won't admit it. I really think you know many teamsters don't get $3500 a month pensions. And I am also sure many do not get $2500 a month social security checks. Anyway you seem to be a little jealous of those who do. That's a shame, you and your buddy Gump need to live your own lives and not worry about other peoples. Jealousy puts a lot of stress on your heart, be careful my friends, oh I forgot you have that terrific teamster health plan.

You have been retired since 1995 if I remember correctly, and drawing a pension for your 30 years in the freight industry. So, I certainly hope today's pension payment and Social Security pays more than you were making when you retired 26 years ago. And, I am pretty sure you had that same full paid insurance plan back when you were working. In other words, your speech mostly falls on deaf ears as it is hard to prove your point when you yourself are enjoying the benefits of formerly being a Teamster in the freight industry. If it is so wrong, maybe you should donate your monthly pension to a charity to ease your conscience there hipocrite!!!

Bubba, since you said you paid less tax than me, you didn't lose too much, did you?

Bubba, I think we may have finally found the man of your dreams. I don't know if he dresses up like a cowboy or not, but he seems to have your same thoughts and ideas. I won't tell you his name, but I will give you a hint. It starts with "Razor" and ends with "blade".

BINGO, we have a winner!

It's your progeny that will be paying for butch lewis until the end of recorded history. A little inflation and deficit spending will in no way affect my spending habits and quality of life. My only goal as a retiree is to die broke.
