    You mean Koch? Did any of Koch's money come in the form of taxes paid by the taxpayers? Keep trying to defend the indefensible.

    By liberal standards that is good use of taxpayer money.

    Really ???

    Post a comparison of the Koch Bros. campaign contributions compared to the unions.

    Go ahead, I dare you. But I won't hold my breath since it will reveal the size of the lie you told.

    He can't nor will he, but the site is quite telling. Keep running, Donc!

    Civil Servants/Public Officials $236,615

    Then look at the union contributions over and above the public officials. 43,000 for Koch and over 500,000 from unions and public employees. Sounds quite fair to me, LOL

    No wonder labor is really upset, a very poor return on their investment.

    Not sure what that means, but the point which your not acknowledging is that the "taxpayer funded" is an accurate statement - whether or not the money changes hands or owners from the tax payer dollar, through to the public coffers, into the teacher and then back out to the union and ultimately back to the politician (Republican or Democrat it doesn't matter), if you follow the money it's a fairly easy discussion to have.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Not much. I'm not really hurting because of unions as much as I am because of improper government.
