If all the dems/libs in a union want their money going to the dem party via the union, don't have a problem with that. However, I'm with TC on this.....people shouldn't be forced to have their dues money go to a party they don't support. Let the unions have fundraisers for that kind of thing.

With both sides it is all about politics and getting elected/reelected and nothing about doing the work of the American people.
Sadly true.
