President Biden’s $3.5 trillion spending plan has a lot in it that is supposedly for helping America. But everyone wants their piece in it. Now the Democrats are trying to use Biden’s spending plan to also benefit the unions. If this goes through, unions will be able to get a $250 tax reduction on their union dues.
In The Washington Times, they quote National Right to Work Committee Vice President Greg Mourad:
“This union dues tax deduction is a blatant handout to one of the Democrats’ biggest political backers, big labor, a group that’s already well-funded thanks to its unique power to collect dues from workers who would lose their jobs for refusing to pay,” said Greg Mourad, vice president of the National Right to Work Committee.
Mr. Mourad said the move was “nakedly political,” as evidenced by the fact the deduction only applies to full-fledged union members. Workers who are [must] pay union dues because of state and local laws but who are not actually members would not be eligible.
