Statehouse Live: Committee chairwoman says business-backed, anti-union bill needs more study

"As a school teacher." Well, let's see. Is he a teacher? Yes. Then he's speaking as a teacher. Did he say, "as every teacher in the state?" Umm, no.

Really? You know the reason unions, including the KNEA, are going ape is because they don't want to have to do exactly that (which as I said before, is perfectly acceptable according to the bill.) They know donations would plummet.

So union dues being used to support unions... and political money being used for political purposes and not to support fat union bosses. Say it ain't so!

I was probably not allowed to have a proper education because all the money went to payroll changes.

Yes, KNEA represents 100% of their members. "All teachers?" Not so much.

The bill doesn't prevent that. An employee could set up a deduction from their checking account once a month just like someone contributing to an IRA. There's nothing preventing that in the bill. But liberals will never accept that because they know the vast majority of the people they collect money from would never do it.

From the actual bill:

(b) Should a member of a professional employees' organization want to donate money to such organization for the purpose of the professional employees' organization engaging in political activities, such member shall do so by a personal payment which notes that such payment is donated for the professional employees' organization's political activities. Moneys received by the professional employees' organization for political activities shall be deposited by such organization in a separate fund for political activities.

Listen to yourself, "Me, an anonymous nobody, can say whatever I want, as long as I rely on my anonymous nobody 'sources.' Meanwhile, because I don't like what a public figure has to say, I'm going to hold him to a completely different standard."

Where's your outrage when the KNEA speaks for "all teachers." As you say, not all teachers are in the union, so where's your outrage then?

Your problem isn't that he's "speaking for all teachers", which he isn't. You're problem is you don't like what he has to say.
