1% vs the Teachers Unions

From EIA:
The union coalition spent $30 million – a third of it from NEA and its Ohio affiliate – or about $15 per “no” vote. Somehow the One Percent control all of the nation’s wealth, but never seem to be able to come close to outspending the teachers’ union. Maybe that’s how they stay so rich.

Dang. $15 per vote! Unbelievable. Being an Ohioan with sense, I voted "yes."

Funny thing is, the unions won. The union members will soon find out they lost as layoffs and cutbacks are already planned in many places if the "nos" won. Approximately 2 thirds of all school levies and other tax issues lost across the state. So, there won't be enough money available to meet budgets and keep the current staffing levels many places.

Have you heard of the Koch brothers?

Yes, the latest leftie bugaboo. Have you heard of George Soros?

Anyway, the Koch Brothers, whom no one had ever heard of before the last election, are like #87 on the list of political donors. Teachers unions own the top of the list.

So what's your point?

Correction: unions own the top of the list.
