“Irked at Democrats, Firefighters Suspend Contributions” (TIMES, 4/27/11)

It is good to read that the International Association of Fire Fighters has indefinitely suspended “all contributions to federal candidates out of frustration with Congressional Democrats” who have not been fighting harder “against budget cuts and antiunion legislation.”

In 2010, this union “donated $1.9 million to Democratic candidates in national elections” (and $408,500 to Republicans!).

Question to Harold Schaitberger, the president of this union, why did you give any money to the Republican Party, an organization which consistently votes against unions and legislation that assists working people?
