    I didn't know ActBlue led the pack. Interesting. That's a very left-leaning PAC. Looks like the Dems really outraise the GOP. So much for the theory that Republicans buy elections.

    Gimmie a break, the Koch Brothers spend more than double of the top ten unions combined.

    Post a credible link then proving your assertion.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d 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.

    Between 1989 and 2014? Post a link to show that.

    move to my state. the Republicans forced through "right to work" nonsense, gutting the unions.

    meh, anyway, most anti-union people have secure, legacy jobs. "i've got mine, **** you," basically. what they don't consider is that their kids are going to have to work in that union-free dream world. that's the part that really sucks.

    there will always be people on aid.

    college or job training is just the first step in a long mile. it helps get a job but it doesn't mandate one will get a job.

    again you want to pay for it go ahead. you can give out college money to as many people as you want to. I have my own kids to try and put through college.

    ok, i'm only going to explain this to you one more time.

    you're already paying for it (and you're probably paying more) in the form of long term entitlements for those who don't get an education or job training. if we guarantee access to college and job training, there will be fewer people drawing public assistance, and we'll all benefit from having one of the most educated populations in the world. this is the smart way to address the problem.

    do you understand?
