4/23 Outrage of the Day

UnionBenefitsTaxExpenseThe federal government is directly paying the salaries of some union employees at taxpayer expense. It has done so for years.

Before the Obama Administration, the federal government did at least issue an annual report telling the taxpayers how much of their money it was spending on salaries for employees who should be paid by the unions they report to, but ever since Obama was inaugurated, it has refused to do even that.

Government unions are organized to work against the taxpayer. The taxpayers should not be forced to pay their bills.
