During the Wisconsin protests, along with other commentators, I pointed out that overnment unions serve as something like political slush funds for Democrats.  Democrats vote ever-higher benefits for government unions -- using taxpayer money -- and unions repay generously by taking their members' money (with or without their approval) and using it to subsidize Democrats' reelection campaigns.

piece by Tim Carney points out that the whole Democrat-Planned Parenthood axis works much the same way.  Democrats use taxpayer money to subsidize Planned Parenthood, and in return, Planned Parenthood fights hard to re-elect Democrats.

Don't you think it's about time that the Democrats stopped using your money and mine to fund this cozy little kickback system?  Say what you want . . . but when Republicans advocate tax cuts, they're not using tax money that, by right, belongs to other Americans in order to pay off those who, in turn, will pony up for their campaigns.
