I'd like to respond to the letter by teacher Deb Kuhar, "The real story". This was boilerplate disinformation. The whole of the 2-page bill, one in the House and one in the Senate, deals with this question, "Should taxpayer resources be used to collect union political money?" My answer is an emphatic no. In 2012, Pennsylvania government unions spent nearly $5 million from members' dues on lobbying and politics and government union bosses gave nearly $4 million in campaign contributions via their PACs to candidates.
