Our friends at the Commonwealth Foundation tallied the totals:
They found that the four largest government unions, the National Education Association (NEA), American Federation of Teachers (AFT), American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), and Service Employees International Union (SEIU), spent $708.8 million on politics during the 2021–22 election cycle, with 95.7 percent going to Democrats.
The Democrats that the unions elect of course then turn around and agree to even more lucrative union contracts at taxpayer expense. Rinse and repeat.
FDR warned us when he wrote:
“All Government employees should realize that the process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service… The very nature and purposes of Government make it impossible for administrative officials to represent fully or to bind the employer in mutual discussions with Government employee organizations. The employer is the whole people, who speak by means of laws enacted by their representatives in Congress.”
