#TXLEGE: The case for THREE Legislative Priorities (in less than a sentence)

"Who among you will give ear to this?
Who will listen and hear for the time to come?"
Isaiah 42:23

Ken Zafiris is a local Trotskyiste gadfly.  The Sean Penn look-a-like is, basically, the Fidel Castro of the Austin ISD teacher's union.  Given this background, Zafiris' recent comments about the relationship between the Austin ISD budget and next legislative session are very interesting.

Specifically, Zafiris wants to force upon Austin ISD taxpayers:
 Prioritizing compensation increases for all employees, not just teachers; and 
 Proactive lobbying of lawmakers during the critical legislative session.
Zafiris wants to use classroom teachers as human shields to demand payoff to the bureaucracy.  Then, he wants to outsource his lobbying costs to taxpayers!  All while his union has their dues collection subsidized by taxpayers.

"For the children," natch.

Bottom Line: Should we congratulate him on hitting the anti-taxpayer trifecta?!?
