Welfare queens

The New York Times did a revealing article on General Electric. On $5.1 billion ($5,100,000,000) profits it made in the US, its federal tax ball was... zero ($0).

A teacher or prison guard making $40k with good benefits enrages American society but grotesque welfare queens like this are barely a blip on our radar.

A good example of political bribes... I mean... "donations" well spent.

Fair enough, but there are real problems with public sector unionism, including their domination for many years of the New York State Legislature, to which they pump in campaign support and in return get pension sweeteners and similar bills passed every year with virtually no debate or opposition, except for the occasional gubernatorial veto.
