Well they're causing the size of government to grow dramatically.
Fearful that they're -- they're not enabling us to get our arms around our fiscal problems.
Government employee unions.
Are basically coercion corruption feather bedding.
All those things and that's what may come up and it's not the workers.
I mean the union -- you right -- -- masquerade as somebody who care of cares about the workers but they really don't RE workers have very little to do.
I wanna get to the union bosses and just a second but first let's talk about this billion dollars in subsidies.
The taxpayers use say are giving the unions house so I don't say the federal government has a number.
That comes in the Office of Personnel Management we paid government workers.
To do government work instead they do union work.
And it's written really is Rick I don't -- -- time on my son my -- right if you look at the at all up its 23 million man hours a year at a cost of over a billion dollars that's a subsidy to private organization.
Called the union.
And -- paint -- nobody even realizes it so how with the that they can get away with doing that well they're supposed to be working for us because the bought and sold politicians -- it into the code.
It's like it's legal it's legal it's in the federal cold so they can what.
Raise money what is -- they do on my dot com we don't know seventy somewhat percent of the time they spend is for general administrative purposes we found one case in the military what they do they filed a grievance.

Dollars on private air travel on private planes in a year and a half.
His members don't realize that the easier than one per senators these are the top guys they give money Occupy Wall Street.
But these are truly the 1% here's.
And -- union members have nothing to say about don't even know that seems to like union members the actual members not the leaders in the should be leading the charge on turning amount they can't.
Less than 10%.
Of union members voted for their union and in 22 states you can't keep your job unless you remember of the union.

A little bit about that.
Is that gonna happen.
Well you saw what happened in Ohio.
Governor case it got its head handed -- they put in its tens of millions of dollars in you have to understand.
The government unions.
Have become the piggy bank for the Democrat party.
They spend hundreds of millions of dollars just the teachers' unions alone taken two billion a year induce.
And all a lot of that.
Money and huge proportion of -- goes to political campaigns right 1984%.
Goes to Democrats and the union workers tonight seem people complain about this they don't have a say in who gets chance they don't -- know.
