    When one party( union) uses it influence to put another party(political candidates) in a position where the second party is to negotiant a contract with the first party, leaving the taxpayer holding the bag?

    Corruption.

    This is my biggest problem with Public Sector Unions and their pals in the Dem Party.

    You often have Government people appointed by Democrats negotiating contracts with Unions who support Democrats.

    A recipe for raping the Tax payers.

    You'd probably call it the same thing that you would call corporate lobbies who spend obscene amounts of cash in support of GOP candidates to alter the laws of this country to benefit them at the expense of the taxpayer.

    Or..........you could call it the same thing as a Supreme Court judge whose wife takes lots of cash from a bunch of teabaggers, and who supports his old lady's viewpoint who won't recuse himself from a ruling (which will in all probability support the teabaggers).

    It's called racketeering, and there was a time in this country when people went to prison for it.

    You're wrong again. Corporations are private industries that can give money to whomever they wish to. Whereas the Democrats have been taking tax payers money and giving it to the unions for the unions to then turn around and funnel that money back into Democratic campaigns.
    Do you understand the difference in the legality of it all now? Let me explain further for you. I as a private citizen can take my money and give it to whatever candidate I want to, that is my right to do so. But a politician has no right to take my tax dollar and give it away to someone in order for that someone to turn around and launder it back to that politician for campaign reasons.
    Understand yet?
    Corporations can legally donate to a candidate with there own money.
    Democrats are committing racketeering crimes when taking tax dollars to give to unions to have it given back to the Democrat for elections.
    Private money given is legal, public money through taxes being taken is not.
    I cannot think of any easier way to explain this.
