Hey, big spenders…

Teachers Unions Spent Big, Lost Big

Record-breaking spending wasted on lost Senate seats, govr’s mansions
BY: Bill McMorris – November 7, 2014 | WFB

The nation’s largest teachers unions blew about $60 million of their members’ money on the disastrous 2014 midterms elections.

The record-breaking campaigns waged by the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers, which represent more than 4 million educators nationwide, did little to stem the Republican wave.

The NEA was the second-largest Super PAC donor of the 2014 cycle, spending more than $22 million to aid Democratic candidates for federal office. The federal spending was on top of an estimated $28 million push at the state and local level. The NEA declined an interview request to discuss the election results and its political strategy moving forward.

The AFT had said it planned on spending $20 million during the 2014 cycle, a ten-fold increase from the $2 million it spent on 2010, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. The AFT did not return request for comment. AFT President Randi Weingarten said that Democratic candidates suffered from President Obama’s unpopularity among the electorate.

If they just had a little mo’ money! Haha Now they know where their union money is going. They were determined to spend to defeat their opponents, which are us the American taxpayers. And this was just a midterm. Note the 2010 spending by comparison.

So their objective was to spend as much as they could to overcome Obama’s unpopularity. And they lost. Maybe his unpopularity cannot be compensated for? They were campaigning against Obama, I like that.

Here’s to you teach’s, and Randi Weingarten.

Maybe they need to spend a little time with the common folk. (not the common core)

This Saturday, the Midwest Marxist Conference was held at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism. The event was teeming with teachers who spoke about the new found bond between the radical socialists and their Teachers Union. The all-day event, which collected money to support Chicago Socialists and featured a communist bookstore, provided students on-campus along with the radical left community to plan the next phase in their activism.

 

Becca Barnes, a Chicago Teachers Union teacher and organizer with Chicago Socialists, proclaimed at the beginning of the conference that “the struggle here in the United States has entered a new phase. Nowhere have we pointed the way forward more clearly than here in Chicago with the teachers union strike.”

 

After the opening plenary, breakout sessions…
