The fact is, government employee unions have very powerful incentives to expand the size of government. A larger government requires more government workers. And with more workers, unions capture an ever-larger stream of revenues from the mandatory union dues they collect. More revenue means more lobbying power for unions and more sweetheart deals from politicians.
How does government finance this inevitable expansion? Through taxes and debt.
More taxes on you today, and more debt for your children and grandchildren to pay off in the future. ~ From The Illinois Policy Institute
