Unions Get $10 B To Help Pass ObamasCare

via Brain Shavings

Hey, somebody has to pay for all those "volunteers" that will be manning the "spontaneous" pro-health reform rallies, information booths and theatrics for the cameras. Now we know how it will be paid for.

$10 billion payoff to unions from taxpayer funds (go read and follow the links)

Astroturfing doesn't come cheap. I wonder what and how much the main stream media is getting?

Throw in unions, progressive groups, illegal aliens, campaign money and Obama's campaign and you have a "grassroots" effort, at least "grassroots" to Democrats hell bent on shoving their so-called reforms down the throats of Americans that do not want it.

Below are the spontaneous outbursts of support from the "grassroots" in central Ohio.

You can find out about their spontaniety in your area by clicking HERE.

The OEA, who teach our children, is part of this faux people's movement, but then they are a union and the unions are in the bag for socialized medicine.

Maxine, always good for a chuckle, has added a new word to the lexicon of anti-socialized medicine names. Neanderthal. (see poll left)
