The word is out the AFL-CIO (or big labor – Socialists Democrats) is going to burn $300 million of the member’s money (dues) to run ads to defeat the Republicans in the Fall 2014 election. What a waste! I can see why their membership is slipping and a sliding. This money could be put to better use by putting it in the member’s retirement or sick-time funds. They need to remove themselves from politics and return to representing the people instead of representing influence (corruption).
