Unions Spending $400 Million in Dues to Fight for the Right to Collect More Dues

Of course they are:
Unions say they are gearing up to spend more than $400 million to help re-elect President Barack Obama and lift Democrats this election year in a fight for “labor’s survival,” according to the Associated Press.

Having recently come under close scrutiny around the country — and fearing the consequences of a Republican in the White House — union leaders say they have little choice as they try to beat back GOP efforts to curb “collective bargaining rights” and limit their ability to collect dues.
They'll be supporting the same president who publicly chastised the Supreme Court for allowing corporations to contribute to political action committees.
