    Teachers Unions to hammer their members with another fee just for Obama. If this wasn't so stupid I almost dismissed it as a joke.
    Didn't we just go through several months of the Unions screaming about "fair treatment"? Don't teachers cry about buying school supplies with their own money?
    But now, "without consent or asking" the union will now "take" more money from teachers without a second thought in support of Obama.
    If you ask me shouldn't Mr O stand up and say "i will not stand by why you are forced to contribute from your already small pay check for my benefit"

    Have and display some dignity Mr O.

    Teachers would donate one of their kidneys to the re-election campaign. After what happend to collective bargaining in Wisconsin teachers are running scared of any republican.

    More examples from the New Right of their hypocrisy. Always willing to take other peoples money, but hysterical when they suffer a simple tax which benefits all.

    from the linked piece...
    UNless you have another piece that states this 'crisis fund' is going to ads that promote Obama's re-election, it's supposition. You know... the stuff some conservatives accuse the liebrals of all the time?

    So the teachers have no choice but to support obama.

    nice

    More tyranny from the left.

    If you won't willingly support big 0, you will be forced to.

    pfft

    And this is what happened to the people that supposedly were the only authors of the Constitution.
