Do you remember the violent and disgusting demonstrations over Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker doing away with the collective bargaining for teachers’ unions?
Some school districts went from a $400,000 deficit to a $1,500,000 surplus as a result. Why is that?
It seems that the insurance company that provided all the "so-called benefits” to the teachers was an insurance company owned and operated by the teacher's union . Since they were guaranteed to get the insurance business from the teachers, and the State had to pay for it and not the teachers, they were increasing the annual costs every single year to become the most expensive insurance company in the state.
Then the insurance company was donating millions and millions of dollars to their favorite (DemocRat) politicians, who when they got elected, guaranteed to keep funding the unions’ outrageous costs.
In other words, the insurance company was a "pass through" for Wisconsin taxpayer money directly to the democratic politicians who kept the whole scandal going.
Nice racket, and this is the racket that is going on in every single State that allows collective bargaining. No wonder the States are taking it away.
Now that the State of Wisconsin is free to put the insurance contract out for bid, and lo and behold, they have saved so much money it has turned deficits into surplus amounts. As a result, none of the teachers had to be laid off, everyone got a raise, etc, etc., and the taxpayers of Wisconsin don't have to pay more taxes to fund the union's political ambitions.
Thank goodness for the Tea Party and their hard work are electing respectable candidates or we would have even more coruption from the Democratic Party and the unions. It is the unholiest of unions. The students and tax payers are the ones that always get screwed. It's time we get rid of all these public unions. If this isn't proof enough for the corruption of the public unions and the Democratic Party then you are a fool. Public unions are making billions of $ off the back of the working tax paying class.
Liberals are going to save the world no matter what it costs and the rich are going to pay for it. Guess what! If you've got a job, you're the rich.
