I Was Listening To MSNBC On Sirius XM Radio In The Car.....

some RW woman - don't know who it was - said something to the effect that the NRA spent $500 mil on the 2016 election but the unions spent $1.6 billion. I found that union number hard to believe. Did they spend so much?

1. If it was a right winger, they don't know what the truth is on any subject.

They make it up as they go.

2. What if they did? Unions deal with more issues than the NRA and have a broader swath of...

population they represent.

Some things unions care about are:

Federal and state safety regulations and employee qualifications

wages, hours and working conditions

Retirement and pension security

Health care

Now, even if they don't do such a bangup job on these, a more relevant question may be why the NRA spends fully a third of that on simply shilling for more guns

4. Next time, just remember this when you hear a RW make a claim.

If their goal is to make us and our allies look bad, divide what they claim about us by 20 to get to an accurate number.

5. A big difference between the two is that unions are trying to help people.

Thanks
