Something for the National Agenda....

Michael Barone:
"Even more important is the political reality that, as New York union leader Victor Gotbaum said in 1975, “We have the ability, in a sense, to elect our own boss.”

The anomalies don’t end there. Public employees’ union dues and contributions to union PACs come directly from taxpayers. So if you live in a state or city with strong public-employee unions, you are paying a tax that goes to elect Democratic candidates (plus, perhaps, a few malleable Republicans).

The problem is that, as Roosevelt understood, public-employee unions’ interests are directly the opposite of those of taxpayers. Public-employee unions want government to be more expensive and government employees to be less accountable."

Somebody, please, stand up and start some legislation to outlaw public sector unions!!!!
