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

Why shouldn't he be allowed to speak? Or is the only way teachers are allowed to speak is if they agree with the KNEA? I'm pretty sure what you meant to say is he doesn't represent "union teachers", not "teachers."

Yes, the bill does say any public employee is banned forever from donating to a union for political activities... oh, wait... all it actually does is make the unions collect their own money instead of getting the state to do it for them thru payroll deductions.

Oh, gee, sucks that has nothing to do with the first amendment at all.

Where's your "proof", since everyone here is so big on that?

Get real, if someone came forward all you would do is attack them as well. There's no proof that would ever be sufficient for you.

And it's also not the job of the state to deduct union political slush funds for them. If they want the money then they can collect it themselves, just like everybody else.

Where was your outrage when Democrats in the House were teachers and being paid by their districts? Or better yet, how do you know he's paid for both semesters? You don't. Take your fake outrage somewhere else.

The comments attacking Smith for being a teacher and a legislator are comical.

Just how does he get paid for being in Topeka? He shouldn't be allowed to vote because he's a teacher!

Too funny. Odd I never heard anyone complaining when other teachers were elected. Of course, they were Democrats. I'm sure his party affiliation and prior votes has nothing to do with the "outrage."

Or better yet, where were all you people when John Vratil was in both the Senate and on a local school board? No conflict of interest there. Of course, he was "for the children" so that makes everything okay, doesn't it?

Silly people, don't you know only Democrats are allowed to work for the government? It's everybody else's job to support their paycheck.

So funny.

Stop wasting my tax money on school district lawyers to sue taxpayers.
