Mitt: "The teachers unions are able to contribute tens of millions of dollars to the campaigns of politicians, and then those politicians when elected, stand across from them at the bargaining table, supposedly representing the interest of the kids. I think its a mistake. I think we gotta get the money of the teachers union out of the campaigns."That flies in the face of Citizens United, a decision that gave free speech rights to businesses and unions. How is corporate money different from money donated by unions? Anyone?

Romney open about attacking Teacher Union Contributions to Democrats.
Here's Ed Schultz dissecting comments made by Mitt Romney about privatizing schools and bashing unions. Few in the media have pointed out, that when the Mittster makes the claim politicians are "tools" of the unions because of campaign donations, he's also admitting that corporate money has the same kind of influence. (Note: It's a false premise anyway.Union money does not effect teachers or influence their professional dedication to educations and our kids. Democratic politicians support teachers with or without unions money. It's Republican projection)
