CTH: Richard Trumka, Dead.
AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka rose to power in combination with President Obama. Trumka became president of the AFL-CIO at the same time President Obama took office in January 2009.
The Chicago machine organized a pact between the revolutionary communists (RevCom) and labor unions in 2007; specifically to assist the installation of Obama in the 2008 presidential election. The AFL-CIO (Nicholas), SEIU (Andy Stern), UFCW, UAW and AFSCME labor unions all agreed to assemble their foot-soldiers in common cause. That union army defeated Hillary Clinton in a brutal 2008 presidential primary. The communists won. The rest is history.
It was around the time of Richard Trumka’s 60th birthday celebration when the deal was signed.

This is the origin of ObamaCare; by any means necessary. More
