    Does that hold true of those corporations that the left seems to hate? How about public unions that live off the taxpayer dollars? You don't see a conflict of interest in public unions backing candidates that spend taxpayer dollars freely?

    My wife belong to a union, and would fall under this category. To opt out of a portion of the dues (the portion used for political contributions) you have to write a letter (has to be handwritten) to request the necessary form. She's written two letters to request the necessary documents and both were ignored. I have a feeling this is probably on purpose.

    bls is data that is collected, hardly opinions regurgitated as fact. You seem to buy liberal rhetoric as fact and ignore actual data which is indeed factual.

    How is forcing people against their will to belong to a union just to go to work a beautiful thing?

    Sounds pretty communistic to me.

    it's the flip side of allowing employers the right to simply ban unions alltogether.


    so i'll be happy to trade you full private sector legalization of union shops in return for full legalization of employer freedom to ban collective bargaining.

    I can guarantee that the lady involved Union dues wasn't used for political purpose.It is a separate PAC and the money donated to the PAC is on a voluntarily basis.
