How do public union employees get paid? My guess is from taxpayer dollars. Instead of lobbing to raise my taxes why not lobby for all politicians to take a pay cut, or get ride of some entitlements. I choose to work in the private sector, and have not got a raise in years. So How can I afford to give unions more? I pay a good portion of my health insurance, I accept that I'm not asking for some else to pay more. So why should you. All Republicans are tiring to do is not to raise taxes. All democrats want to raise taxes. I said once I'll say it again unions are nothing but a slush fund for the democratic party. Just my 2 cents,like yours.
