From The Gateway Pundit
It’s always about power.
Democrats are pushing tax breaks for union political activity so the far-left groups can harass Republicans without worry.
Labor Unions spent $2 billion in the 2020 election going after President Trump — the greatest jobs president in US history.
Today Biden policies are shredding any gains the country made under President Trump. The Biden inflation is devastating for working-class Americans. Democrats don’t care. It’s always about power.
The Republican Party is silent to this latest threat against American workers.
They really are not up for this fight.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
House Democrats are fighting to give a tax break to workers, but only if they agree to subsidize union political spending, which pours billions into Democratic campaign coffers.
The proposal, which is part of the $3.5 trillion reconciliation package, allows union members to write off up to $250 worth of union dues annually. The tax deduction excludes dissenting workers who pay partial fees that do not cover political spending. Republican leaders and labor watchdogs said a tax write-off should include all labor union fees, not simply political ones, and should be debated as an individual piece of legislation rather than tucked into a massive funding bill.
Rep. Virginia Foxx (R., N.C.), ranking member on the Committee on Education and Labor, said Democrats want to reward labor unions for their consistent political support.
“Democrats’ incestuous relationship with union bosses is harming hardworking taxpayers,” Foxx told the Washington Free Beacon. “This proposal blatantly discriminates against workers who choose not to join a union or don’t subscribe to the left’s socialist ideologies. Union bosses aren’t getting a tax break, they’re getting repaid for their loyalty to Congressional Democrats and the Biden administration.”
Labor unions spent nearly $2 billion on elections and lobbying in the 2020 election cycle, with millions in additional spending that watchdogs say is illegally classified as charitable on federal labor filings.
