Chuck Schumer just got some extremely bad news about his next election
Chuck Schumer and the rest of the Democrats are gearing up for the 2020 election.
They think that is when they will win back the White House and the Senate.
But Schumer just got some extremely bad news about that election.
Public union dues – money ripped from the paychecks of government workers – is the number one funding source for Democrats.
The Supreme Court dealt the Democrats a serious blow last year when it ruled that government unions could not force members to pay dues as a condition of employment.
The results were staggering.
In less than one year, two of the largest public unions that fund Democrat campaigns and causes lost over 90 percent of their non-member fees.
Two powerful, left-wing public unions lost over 90 percent of non-member fees after the Supreme Court ruled against forcing non-members to pay union dues.
In other words, until June of 2018 we lived in a country where public sector workers who chose not to join their respective unions were still forced to pay union dues, which are called agency fees.
These agency fees represented 70 to 80 percent of union dues and were forcibly removed from the pay checks of public workers who wanted nothing to do with far-left unions that spend billions of dollars every year to elect Democrats.
Liberals know their ideas and causes are unpopular.
That’s why they rely on forced union dues to fund their candidates and issue advocacy groups.
Conservatives have long argued compulsory union membership is unconstitutional and un-American.
They were vindicated by the Supreme Court last year.
Depriving the left of this money could break their back in electoral politics.
