#TXLEGE: Abolishing Labor Union Subsidies OUGHT to be a Primary Season Issue

"So teach us to number our days,
That we may gain a heart of wisdom."
Psalm 90:12

There's an issue that, for whatever reason, died behind the scenes before last session began: Eliminating subsidized dues collection for public sector labor unions.

There are plenty of rumors as to why that happened.  Unfortunately, they're all speculative.  Like it or not, the truth is we'll never know.

However, time marches on.

Seeing as how we're now in the middle of primary season, this would be a good issue about which to ask candidates: "Do you support eliminating subsidized dues collection for public sector labor unions?!?"

Responses might be interesting.

Obviously, many politicians who tell you what to hear are lying.  But there's still merit to the exercise.  Especially on this issue.

Bottom Line: This issue shouldn't be controversial.  Yet, apparently it is.  Which means ask now.
