An incredible story tonight out of Michigan Robert and Patricia Hanes struggle to care for their two adult children who have severe cerebral palsy.
But and -- the law in that state classifies them as quote.
Home -- healthcare employs simply because they they take care of their own handicapped kids in her own house.
As a result they are forced to join the Service Employees International Union.
Carl Paladino who is beside himself.
And anger about all -- and that you would support.
This look they've got this family.
Who's your heart goes out -- them because they're working hard to help their kids.
This family got about a 30%.
In the in the money's the public monies that they get because of this the union.
That part of that money goes back to sustain the union so they benefited.
From the union activities.
There was an election that said we want the union for this group workers this is industrial democracy at its best it benefits real people and it benefited this -- but.
Carl they are not union workers and they said and I'm quoting mister -- as we take care markets at home there aren't any union issues involved in our care taking.
But the money keeps being taken out of our checks anyway Carl.
Incredible Richard I don't believe you're saying these things you can't make this stuff -- You wanted to be an elective representative is that the way you protect the taxpayers.
These are Medicaid money's.
What is -- The these monies are there to provide funding for.
People who provide professional care to to either their families or others they are employees of the state.
For that purpose.
These are all the technicalities -- parents spent much disabled child and watches it enabled you of that because of this union that they got.
More money to care for their -- -- yeah I -- six million dollars last year.
In -- from from health care workers who are independent contractors.
Pretty don't know we're gonna see you're gonna want them to -- unionized people's tax freedom Yahoo! did tax returns they -- take good news for people getting a tax return all you know that they the residual on the toolbar anytime they want.
This isn't the data pick on unions call we have elections yesterday we don't -- -- -- rejected these kinds of attacks and unions this union help this family.
And as part of that process the union that they become members Richard.
Registered I think he's Richard -- these is this family terribly misinformed because they say were not even a home health care workers were just.
Parents taking care of our kids.
They see money taken out thirty dollars every month that's.
About 400 dollars a year that they could use specifically and they're not spending money on cadillacs are wasting money they're spending their money and their kids they desperately.
Need this -- it's taken out.
-- they should get more help and the reason I got even the amount of help they got is because the union demanded increases in the amounts given to the car -- You were talking about hello record if this issue was -- about ballot Carl.
What do you think the people would vote for for the -- for those people or for the position of Richard -- And we think people would vote for better representation.
From their legislative leaders by the way.
These are Republicans all right that are supporting this Salinas.
Is a Republican elected representatives.
Who should be protecting these people who should be raising are seeking to raise this -- -- for disabled children.
Not the union what does a union doing lobbying union has no business.
I'm in the lobby all the time by the way Richard and I -- -- right yesterday the unions want a big win in Ohio but if this issue was on the table -- this issue.
-- describe to people would your position.
And with a position a coral and I were -- how do you think the people would vote.
Without sorority so I think they would vote to help the families and the -- helps the family but I don't think that connection is easily made it may not be easily -- but the truth it's not as many as LM has not made it a couple let's taking care of their -- we want your children and they're the ones that matter the most -- We saw in Ohio was the American people believe in industrial democracy they believe the right to people organize and even when the unions are wrong and that wrong quite often.
They represent an.
An aspect of American like that's worth preserved -- total lack of transparency here and they did it with with secret meetings.
-- all of a company that was formed just for the purpose of taking these dues and handing these -- over to the FC LU and what do you think the money went to Richard.
It went to lose a political campaign -- -- of the -- b.'s owners were allowed it went to Richard.
