But it gets worse. In states like Wisconsin, far from the automakers and their union workers, 80% of stimulus funds “went to public unions.” That means these unions received $600 million in funding which they are now using to fill the coffers of Democrat candidates and to pay for ongoing opposition to Gov. Scott Walker. As a matter of fact, public employee unions have already spent more than $8 million in their effort to recall Walker. What this does, in effect, is remove the advantage Walker had achieved in fundraising by placing the weight of the national purse behind Walker’s opponents.
This is not the first time I've come across this comparison. It is true that much of the money that saved GM and others ended up in the heads of unions. They get part of every union employee's check. It is true that labor unions lean heavily toward Democrats. I think it is time to ban unions from participating in elections at all. They would still have collective bargaining and cover their union member's asses. They would just loose the support of the ones running the government.
What do I know? I'm just a well read citizen of the U. S..
