CA Teachers' Union spends $20,961,399 on its "No on 32" campaign

You've got to ask yourself what the union sees as the return on its $21M investment. How many Sacramento politicians are getting greased by this union, and by other unions in the state? Imagine what would happen if union members had a free choice on spending their hard-earned money on political spending like this. One study showed that two-thirds of Teachers' Union members would opt out. Influence is bought and paid for with cash, less cash equates to less influence, and less influence means that politicians might not continue to pass as much pro-union legislation as they do. No wonder it's worth $21M to the union to try to prevent this!
Vote YES on 32!
