Sidhu on Defined Benefits


Just in case you missed the recent OCGOP showdown between Shawn Nelson and carpetbagger Harry Sidhu, we generously share a video clip showing Sidhu trying to to talk about defined contributions versus defined benefits.

Since this is the major problem contributing to government unfunded liabilities you would think a competent supervisorial candidate would be all over this – especially at a Republican nominating meeting.

Well see if you can understand what Yahoo Harry is talking about before stammering that he really doesn’t know anything about it! Enjoy this quintessential Sidhu moment.

    Give him a break. All of his employees made minimum wage flipping chicken. He doesn’t know anything about benefits.

    Don’t ask a general contractor about pensions; you see what can happen. They are used to sub-contracting which means they never need to worry about paying benefits to employees.

    Jayzus, that guy can barely speak English. This is some sort of joke, right? For the love of God please tell me it’s a joke.

    Yeah, that was pretty embarrassing. That’s what Cunningham called a “comparatively poor” performance.

    Comparative to a mentally incompetent Kharakhastani circus clown.

    Okay, I have now listened to that clip seven or eight times. Whatever language that dude is speaking it ain’t English.

    I’ve been told this joker has been elected twice to the Anaheim City Council. I don’t see how this could be.

    Are those people even dumber than the voters in Fullerton?

      Yes. Barely.

    He must have given that answer at his interview with the Sheriff Union. No wonder they are backing this guy. Get a candidate who has no idea what the issues are and doesnt really understand english that well. Perfect union candidate.

    Was anyone thinking ” Bada beep bada beep bada… that’s all folks!” as you listened to this? Man I miss those old cartoons.

    Anonymous hit it square on the nose. All his employees are minimum wage, no pension, no benefits (illegal aliens?), and those costs are pushed onto the backs of society at large (sort of an unfunded mandate type TAX on the rest of us).

    The issue of government employee pensions structured as defined benefit versus defined contribution is just the most BASIC consideration regarding pensions in large scale operations in industry or government which has been at or near a government fiscal crisis for over a decade, and has periodically been a crisis issue for employees of and investors in (stocks and bonds) American industrial companies for fully forty years!

    But ignorance of such a profoundly important issue is no bar to government union members’ political campaign support, because those are the typical go along with (i.e. take orders from) the unions candidates who created all of these crises.

    The entire issue of lopsided campaign contributions-financing for Leftist big-government School Boards and City Council candidates for local government offices is the result of JFK Democrat creation of government employee unions, and removal of barriers against politicization of government “workers” at all levels of government.

    This is what turned public schools “teachers” into mere Leftist propagandists, which in turn produced another generation of Feminist-Abortionists who have now “succeeded” in electing the Socialist Totalitarian destruction of America.
