When You Pay Your School Property Taxes......
When you pay your school property taxes does all that money go to the schools? HECK NO!
That money also goes to union dues. What do the unions do with that money? The Education Intelligence Agency recently documented where 30.5 million dollars of people's property taxes went. Here is a sampling......
Democracia USA - $150,000
Democratic GAIN - $10,000
Democratic Leadership Council - $25,000
Working America - $200,000
World Outgames - $5,062
Yes on 1A and 1B - $3 million
Zimbabwe Teachers Association - $10,000
MediaMatters - $100,000
Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund - $30,000
NAACP - $55,000
NAACP National Voter Fund - $200,000
National Action Network - $10,000
How do you like 100,000 dollars that should be going to schools going to Media Matters? Your property tax dollars working against you.
For more information as to where the 30.5 million dollars that should be going to your local public schools went, visit the Education Intelligence Agency's website.
Spelling and grammar errors as well as typos are left as an exercise for my readers.
