Public Employee Unions: Democrat Funding Machine

Following up to our earlier post, Michael Barone describes in detail in today's Washington Examiner why the Dems are pulling out all the stops in the Rust Belt to choke off any attempt by the states to cut off the public employee union feedbag:
In effect, public employee unions are a mechanism by which every taxpayer is forced to fund the Democratic Party.
Ties in rather nicely with the stories in our earlier HazZzMat post, eh?

There's a lot more coming out on this in the blogosphere. Perhaps at long last the American taxpayer--and the Republican Party--are undertaking in earnest the long and arduous process of de-funding the institutional left that is ruining this country.

Hint: check out the politicized 501 (c) (3) non-profits next. A substantial number of them effectively launder money for Democrat political campaigns by using subsidiary organizations to thwart IRS rules against non-profit funding of political activities. There's plenty of information on this at David Horowitz' Discover the Networks.
