Republicans just don't like union contributions to Democrats

February 26, 2011

The recent op-ed piece by Jonah Goldberg ("End the mistake of government unions," Feb. 25) was so laughably one sided that no one could even take it seriously. Mr. Goldberg's main criticism of government unions seems to be that most of the union money goes to Democrats. I don't hear him whining about the recent Citizens United ruling from the Supreme Court that opened the floodgates for campaign contributions from big business. Why not? Because, of course, almost all that money goes to Republicans, the party that Mr. Goldberg supports.

So basically, Mr. Goldberg's objections boil down to the fact that he doesn't like Democrats and will support anything that takes away their money. He is nothing more than a shill for the Republican Party.
