Controllers Boost Giving to Democrats
By BRODY MULLINS and ANDY PASZTOR
The nation's biggest and most powerful unions are usually among the most generous givers to Democrats. This year there is a newcomer among the top ranks: the low-profile association that represents air-traffic controllers.
So far this election, the National Air Traffic Controllers Association, with 20,000 members, has emerged as the second-largest union donor to the major pro-Democratic super PACs. It is surpassed only by the Service Employees International Union, which has 2.1 million members.
NATCA has donated $1 million to a super PAC working to re-elect President Barack Obama, Priorities USA Action, and another $500,000 to a super PAC trying to keep Democrats in control of the U.S. Senate.

An obvious press release from NATCA trying to raise their profile. $1.M is nothing in union donations. Case dismissed.
Reagan = PATCO is to Romney = NATCO? We can only hope.
So, two government unions lead the pack in donating to the president.
As the philosopher Burt Reynolds said long ago, this isn’t America, its Guatemala with color television.
The only way the commie union thugs can continue to shake down American workers is if the DemocRATS are in charge of the country. Of course they’re going to spend big bucks keeping the communists in charge of the “government”.
I’m so glad our goverment banned donations from both corporations and unions.
