UNION DUES COLLECTED FROM MEDICAID BENEFITS
By Brujo Blanco

In Michigan the SEIU, which is a union that represents government employees, has been collecting $30.00 per month from people who take care of adult patients in their homes. These home caretakers are the family members of the patients and they do not receive compensation for taking care of these patients. Michigan has allowed this to occur based on the premise that government employees have a contract to provide such services and if a parent or parents decide to take care of an adult patient in their home then they are government employees and must pay dues. Instead of them paying dues out of pocket the money is taken from the coffers of Medicaid. This money is then taken and provided to the Democrats so they can elect their candidates.

You have read this rant correctly. Government funds are taken from the government coffers and they end up in the coffers of a Union. This has been identified as being OK in the eyes of the court. Gee I wonder if that judge was appointed by a Democrat or a Republican.

In this day and age of alleged “affordable health care” we cannot afford to have our money put into the coffers of anyone. This is a non government organization receiving government funds for services not provided. In this instance we have a union placing a tax on government.

Let us think about this for a while. How about the Volunteer Firefighters throughout our country? If there are paid and Volunteer outfits and the paid pay dues why not charge the Volunteers dues on top of it?

This situation gives one political party a serious financial advantage over another. It is not surprising in that the Democrats have been using union thugs as storm troopers to intimidate the “opposition.”

Quarterback Cam Newton plans to take more ownership of the Carolina Panthers' offense without his top four receivers from last season.

''I'm excited to take this challenge to be this team's leader,'' Newton said. He said he was ''surprised'' when he learned the Panthers had released Smith, one of the team's most popular players.
