Yes, it’s not enough for the Michigan legislature to get rid of the Right-to-Work laws in Michigan and make non-union employees pay union dues. They also want those union dues, which are in effect, political donations to the Democrat Party, to be 100% refundable on their taxes and have introduced HB 4235 to make it Michigan law.
The unions are foaming at the mouth at the prospect of letting the taxpayers foot the bill for their political donations. It’s just another in the long line of scams that the party has got going to win elections – literally at the expense of the American people.
Sarah Anderson, executive director of the Michigan Freedom Fund, a conservative political organization said about the bill, “This proposal from Democrats legalizes money laundering with your tax dollars to benefit those in power and solidify their control.”
If the legislation passes, and it probably will, the union dues would undoubtedly go up. And up. And up. Rep. Andrew Beeler (R-Port Huron) says, “If this would become law and you’re the union, what would you do? You’d automatically raise your dues.”
Former Michigan House Speaker and Republican Jase Bolger calls the proposal “stunning” and says, “They’re just seeking to give the unions as much payback as they can.”
