Here’s a troubling email I received today from the anti-union, League of American Voters…

Thought I’d share with you an email I received today from The League of American Voters who claims there were “threats of violence from union thugs.”  In this email, employee organizations were called, “bloated unions” that are gouging the taxpayers and need to give up their outrageous pay demands, lavish benefits and fat pensions.

As a teacher with a Master’s degree and 10 years of experience, I make about $44,000.00 a year. Is that now considered “outrageous pay” in America? Under my health plan with the school district, it would cost me over $1000.00 a month to insure my 3 children. Many union teachers end up having to buy subpar health plans for their children because they cannot afford their own health provider’s family plans. Some teachers just don’t insure their kids because they simply cannot afford to.  Are these the “lavish benefits” that The League of American Voters is complaining about?

As for my pension, by the time I retire, I will probably make between $15,000 – $20,000 a year.  Is this the “fat pension” that The League of Voters feels is too much for a highly educated person who has worked hard (often times, in fear) for 25-30 years in below standard working conditions earning lower pay compared to equally educated professionals in the private sector?

When I signed up to teach, I was under the impression that my pension was in the form of deferred pay, which I agreed to sign on to because I wanted to secure my future when I retired. I also accepted lower pay than what I would have made in the private sector.  There was a trade off made. Now, Gov. Walker and his posse want to renege on that and paint me as greedy.

I sure hope the American people wake up to what’s really going on.

Here is the email I received….

From: League of American Voters

Dear Reader,

Bill O’Reilly was absolutely right last night.

As he said on his Fox News show the other night, the Democrats know that if they lose in Wisconsin and that if Gov. Scott Walker wins, it means that all across the country the public employee unions will finally have to give up their outrageous pay demands, lavish benefits and fat pensions.

And, as Bill O’Reilly said, this will be bad news for the Democratic party which depends on these unions.

Worse, he said, it is bad news for President Obama and his 2012 election plans, because he desperately needs these liberal unions to win re-election.

This is why team Obama continues to throw everything but the kitchen sink at Governor Scott Walker.

This is why the work of the League of American Voters campaign to support Gov. Scott Walker is critical.

Despite raging protests and even threats of violence by union thugs, Governor Scott Walker is standing firm.

But already there are demands by some that he “cave”.

Frankly, according to my sources in Wisconsin, the pressure on Gov. Walker and the legislature is extraordinary.

You have to remember, this is not a local Wisconsin fight. It’s a national one.

That’s why Obama has brought to Wisconsin the full weight of every radical activist group in America.

That’s why the Obama allied unions are pouring millions into TV and radio ads in Wisconsin.

He’s dispatched his allies from the Democrat National Committee, Norman Lear’s leftwing People for the American Way, and even Obama’s own group “Organizing for America.”;

Another Obama crony liberal group, Moveon.org is mobilizing an “emergency call for rallies in every state capital this Saturday… demand that the rich and powerful pay their fair share.”

Governor Scott Walker needs every single ounce of our support. We can’t leave him alone in the arena to fight. You and the League must join him.

We urgently need help for our radio ad blitz to support Gov. Walker – PLEASE GO HERE NOW

This is why the League of American Voters is urgently launching a national effort to help Gov. Walker and to stop these bloated unions.

The League has prepared a powerful new radio ad to air throughout Wisconsin in support of Gov. Walker.

With your help we plan on exposing the Obama-Labor machine in ads across the nation.

The League of American Voters is at the forefront of the battle in Wisconsin defending Scott Walker.

Dick Morris, the famous Fox News analyst, says “The League is the most effective grassroots organization in America.” Dick credits the League for having stopped Obama’s “public option” healthcare takeover. The public option would have destroyed private health insurance, and we stopped them.

The League also led the fight to force Pres. Obama to renew the Bush tax cuts. Our national TV effort with Sen. Fred Thompson worked. Obama caved.

Now, the League has prepared a powerful new radio ad to air throughout Wisconsin in support of Gov. Walker.

With your help we plan on exposing the Obama-Labor machine in ads across the nation.

Our ad encourages Gov. Walker to stay strong and exposes how public employee unions are gouging the taxpayers.

We urgently need you to help the League in the vital effort to support Gov. Walker and expose the unions – Go Here Now

Help the League to end Big Labor’s ability to hold taxpayers, school students, and emergency services hostage to the lavish demands of public unions.

Governor Walker is under intense pressure. Team Obama wants to break him.

One Congressman who backs Obama even suggested violence is OK: “Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary.”

This is disgusting and this Congressman ought to be held accountable!

But it underscores the truth, Obama and his public union cronies are desperate.

They’ll do whatever it takes to keep power.

That’s why Obama says “Punish our enemies… Reward our friends”

But together, you and I can help Scott Walker do what’s right for Wisconsin — what’s right for America.

Help the League to support Gov. Scott Walker. Go Here Now

Yours for Freedom,

Bob Adams
Executive Director

P.S. -Moveon.org is organizing an “emergency rally” in all fifty states for Saturday. Millions of dollars from far left groups are pouring into Wisconsin. The League of American Voters urgently needs your help. Dick Morris, the famous TV analyst, says “The League is the most effective grassroots organization in America.” We stopped Obama’s “public option”healthcare takeover. We forced Obama to continue the Bush tax cuts. And we can save Gov. Scott Walker. But we need YOUR HELP today. Time is critical. Please DONATE HERE NOW.
