Question Of The Day

Why should Democrats be funded by taxpayers?

Michael Barone:

“Taxpayers, present and future, . . . are the source of every penny of dues paid to public employee unions, who in turn spend much of that money on politics, almost all of it for Democrats. In effect, public employee unions are a mechanism by which every taxpayer is forced to fund the Democratic Party.”

  1. Once taxpayers pay non-union or union-workers for a job the funds paid no longer belong to citizens. At this point the funds belong to the person being paid. What non-union or union employees determine to do whith their private funds is non of your business.

  2. Wrong: the taxpayer is their employer. If you do not like your employer get a different job. That is what our private sector employees do.

    Union employees do not get to decide which political candidate or party their union dues support.

    No tax payer funded job should fund any political party or campaign. There is what we in the real world call a conflict of interest. In the real world this would be called bribery and jail time might be a consequence.

    If the tax payer sees fit to hire them there is no way they should be soliciting politicians with the money we pay them, for raises, benefits, and pensions that we can’t afford our selves.

  3. Try reading the Constitution whatever! In case you missed it, America workers are free to redress government regardless if they be private or public employees. Hate to break it to you but Lincoln freed the slaves!

  4. Right: Lincoln did free the slaves, so why should unions have the power to enslave the tax payer!

    It is the unions that charge the employee their hard earned $ to be a member then line the pockets of their slave masters (politicians) pockets. Do employees get a choice to be union or not, pay dues or not? Do they get a choice of where their money is spent?

    The government is being redressed and marched right out of power. In a very peaceful fashion called elections.

    Of course union beer bellied thugs would like it differently. We are sick of their belly aching. This is America and the Constitution protects all of us.

    The tax payer has been more than fair to public sector unions. If they don’t like us for their master get another job. We promise not to let the door hit them in the ass as they walk out.

  5. When Obama tells ACORN he will meet with the union before he negotiates deals as president, it is clear there is a big problem. The union gives money to the politician, and the politician pays the unions back 100 fold using taxpayer money.

    Besides that obvious conflict, there is the issue of these bought and paid for politicians not only paying high wages, but promising golden pensions while not bothering to fund them.

    So Illinois had a law requiring they be funded, but union friendly Democrats found other uses for that money, and now we face some $80 billion in unfunded obligations.

    Despite that they still only know one chant … “screw everyone else, give us MORE”.

  6. Well stated Bill, So RedState who’s the slave? Last time I checked the Constitution limits government not the liberties of the tax payer. (When was the last time you read the Constitution?) Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

  7. As long as the First Amendment guarantees “the right of the people peacefully to assemble” taxpayers regardless of private or public are granted the right to freely associate.

    The Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution also assures: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of… petition the government for a redress of grievances”.

  8. What does redress of grievances have to do with unions demanding excessive pay and exorbitant pensions? Is it really in the Bill of Rights that unions can strike and shut down a school system if their demands are not met by the taxpayer? The right to extortion? What about the right to fire people that under-perform and over-demand?

    People have the “right” to not work for me if I don’t pay them enough. They don’t have the right to demand I pay them whatever they want. These “rights” to a high paying job with pension and early retirement, a house and health care are invented by the socialists and communists, not the authors of the constitution.

  9. You would think that from listening to the left that our money isn’t our money, it’s a national resource.

    Look, I’m all for paying workers fair wages. I’m all for taxing people what they owe. But at a certain point, I do think that people have a right to say enough of the taxing, enough of the over spending and enough of the power grabs.

    If the rich don’t have a right to their money, then who says that the little guys have a right to theirs?

    Union thug locksteppers are helping to give away our most basic freedoms all for the sake of jealousy.

  10. Once your tax dollars are paid to the government it is no longer your money, but the governments. If you don’t believe that try to get it back.

  11. Who “owns” the government?

    And why do they put up signs that say “YOUR tax dollars at work?”
