PRESS RELEASE – TEA PARTY OF LOUISIANA CALLS FOR the Immediate Approval of the Paycheck Protection Act HB 418
May 12, 2015 For Immediate Release
BATON ROUGE - The Tea Party of Louisiana (TPoL) calls for the immediate approval of HB 418 – the Paycheck Protection Act.
TPoL's call for immediately approving the Paycheck Protection Act (HB 418) is based on three indisputable facts that every Legislator needs to come to terms with:
1) In Louisiana, taxpayers are forced to pay for the accounting of government labor unions. We bear the cost of deducting their union dues from state employee paychecks.
2) Legislators have an obligation to the tax payers not to let unions force us to help pay for their political agenda!
3) Even worse, the union dues we pay to collect are used for political causes—causes you may not support and the vast majority of Louisiana tax payers do not support.
TPoL and its 13,733 activist members and the citizenry we represent expect our legislators not to let these pro-government union special interests take precedence over the taxpayer. TPoL feels that our tax dollars have no business subsidizing government union politics -- on causes we may or may not like! We want this legislation passed this session and urge you to VOTE for the Paycheck Protection Act (HB 418).
