Mine workers screwed by Trump and Republican Congress

Health care cut-off notices mailed to 22,600 retired coal miners, widows as Congress fails to act to fulfill America?s promise to them - UMWA

I have much respect for coal miners and am sorry they are going to loose their benefits but they voted for trump, they fell for the lies of the Republican Party, now they will have to suffer the consequences of their ignorance and gullibility.

This is an example of someone so stupid that not only can he not read his own article properly before making an idiot of himself, he then celebrates his own libtardation by creating yet another thread highlighting his own idiocy.

This SHIT happened before the GODDAM election, Walter Mitty. The article never mentioned Trump nor the Republicans. If Walter Mitty had an honest spine, he would have mentioned this has been an ongoing situation for a entire generation.. Yet, he chose to use the plight of others to infuse his own fantastical agenda bitching about Trump where it did not exist.

Perfect example of TDS, fake news, and stupidity of one giant snowflake all gathered at a crossroad and the damn idiot thinks he is on to something about Trump. Back in the days, we used to called such a challenged person a "clown" or referred to him as the ""village idiot".
Thanks from Sabcat

Black Lung Disease Benefit used to be paid to coal miners, wives and children as a lump sum to spend how they please. My Kentucky girlfriend bought a brand new convertible Super Sport Malibu with her cut so many years ago, exactly what she didn't need. Her Dad bought Boy Scout Knob (a knob is bigger than a hill but smaller than a mountain), exactly what he didn't need.

That benefit should still be active today.

The Miners Protection Act of 2017 was introduced into the House on January 3 of this year, and govtrack gives the bill about a 2 percent chance of passing.

Its a union pension. Why on earth should the federal government take over and fund a union pension program? The answer is that they should not start funding private pension funds.
