AFSCME to Spend $2 Million on Democratic Agenda

We are not sure what is more outrageous — the fact that the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) will spend in excess of $2 million in workers’ dues in the first few hours of the Democrat-controlled Congress, or that the AFSCME Boss, Gerald McEntee, believes $2 million “is not a whole lot of money.”

Because he is spending workers’ money and not his own, $2 million may not be a lot of money, but it gets worse for rank and file union members. McEntee brags that the $2 million is only “a down payment” on a broader economic populist message that he hopes to see take effect after the first 100 hours of the new Congress are up.

If you do the math, Boss McEntee is spending $20,000 of dues money every hour.
