I get emails like this all the time at work:

Dear 357mag,

Last week, politicians in Washington passed a jobs bill WITHOUT critical fiscal relief for states and local governments. Without this money, states will slash hundreds of thousands of jobs and gut education, health care and public safety services even more.

However, there is still a chance to get this aid in the Senate version of the bill. Please call your senators right now. Tell them to include state aid in this jobs bill.

We think we're in a world of hurt now, but this will be nothing short of catastrophic for the already dire budget crisis in most states if this Medicaid funding does not get put back into this jobs bill. This funding (known as FMAP) would provide is $26 billion for in badly needed funding for state and local governments.

As public service employees, there is pretty much nothing more critical to save our jobs and public services right now than this money. Please click here to call your senators right now.

In solidarity,

Charles Loveless
AFSCME Legislative Director

Fuck AFSCME, and fuck unions.  Everybody is hurting.  The government isn't saving MY ass, they are RAPING my ass.  Solidarity - everyone together to push the State to take more money out of our wallets.  FOCK YOU!

AFSCME is right up there with SEIU––they're blood sucking leaches.
