Why government employes’ unions back Michael Bennet, Ed Perlmutter, John Salazar, Betsy Markey
Unions that represent teachers and other employes of municipal, state and federal government agencies back Democrats who let the unions make sure that organized government workers can overpay themselves and give themselves expensive health benefits and pensions that are bankrupting cities, states and the U.S. government.
That is why unions are pouring millions into attack ads against Republicans. That is why unions are backing appointed Obama Democrat Michael Bennet (D-Washington, DC), and Democrats Diana DeGette, John Salazar, Ed Perlmutter and Betsy Markey.
Like all Democrats, Colorado's Congressional Democrats and Democrats in the state legislature let government employes set their own wages and pay themselves the most expensive pensions in the world.
The Democratic Party is owned by government employes' unions. They run governments for their employes, not for taxpayers.
The only way taxpayers can regain control of their governments is to vote Republican.

No, you have it wrong. Those unions are NOT run for the benefit of employees, but for the union leaders.
