    Of course you have and your union gives some of that to the national. Are you sure none of the money going to national isn't spent on campaigns?

    Now with regard tot he thread topic, do you know the difference between a public union and a private sector union and who pays for the benefits in both?

    Here ya go conservative,right in your neighborhood.Give till it hurts.

    <Teamsters Local Union No. 988>
    < 2010 D.R.I.V.E. CAMPAIGN >

    “Big Business spends big money in Washington to influence members of Congress and push their anti-worker plans. They outspend working families on politics by more than 15-1.Through grassroots political action and aggressive lobbying on Capitol Hill and in State Houses and City Halls across America, Teamsters have stopped some of the worst attacks on working people. But Big Business is pushing their agenda harder than ever. That means we have to fight back stronger than ever. And we have to move forward with our own programs, like improving job safety, fighting for affordable childcare, and stopping abuses by corporate health providers and insurance companies. You can take a stand for working families by contributing to DRIVE – the Teamsters’ political action committee. Your contribution will support grassroots action by Teamster families to stand up to Big Business interests. ” IBT D.R.I.V.E Department

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Last I checked tax dollars don't fund the Teamsters salaries and benefits. Those are funded by the company. Let's run a few more out of business ok?

    Ok, just goes to show we have a lot of ignorant union employees that fund PAC's that fund Democrat candidates so that those candidates can help put your company out of business. They destroyed the auto industry and most of the other manufacturing businesses but that isn't enough. Now they are working on bankrupting the states. I couldn't care less if the UAW puts you out of business for you are to blame if that happens. Are your benefits and salary paid by the taxpayers?

    Read what I posted, I don't care who pays your salary and benefits because it is handled by private industry. If your union puts your company out of business, so be it, although it then becomes the taxpayers' problem. Not so with public unions, our taxdollars fund their pay and benefits and thus are their employer. Seems like a hard concept for those supporting the Wisconsin union protests to understand.
