No, I am sorry to inform you that I am not wrong. Ive seen you before, you twist and manipulate information to best suit your argument. Classic
actions of a troll~
Some people you cant help~ ( shaking head )
Your original statement:
I have a problem with people making to much money, especially when those funds obtained by the Unions in Fact pay over 90% of the Democratic
parties lobbying agenda.
You are saying: Unions pay over 90% of Democratic parties lobbying agenda.
To prove it, you provided this source:
Union political support for Democrats is a trend that has been in place for decades, and it shows no signs of abating. In 2010, America's top 20
labor unions gave more than $68 million in campaign contributions to federal candidates -- with 94 percent of the total going to Democrats and just 4
percent to Republicans. Most of the total -- 88 percent -- came from political action committees (PACs) associated with those 20 unions, and the
remaining 12 percent came from individual union members. A similar trend can be seen in state and local political campaigns. Fifteen unions gave at
least $1 million to Democrats during the 2008 and 2010 campaigns. Combined, their donations totaled more than $206 million, of which fully 91 percent
went to Democrats.
This says that out of contributions Unions give, over 90% go to Democrats. However it does not say that Democrats get over 90% of their funding from
Unless you think that Democrats only got 226 million (91% of 226 is 206) in contributions for the 2008 and 2010 elections
I know it is hard to admit you were wrong...but it is the right thing to do.
