SEIU and AFSCME defeated in Illinois

Rod Blagojevich and Patrick Quinn tried to swindle thousands of home health care workers--as well as the 13 million people of Illinois by having a government-workers union, either SEIU or AFSCME represent state-subsidized home health care workers.

Most of these people were caring for family members. What was in it for the unions? More dues money to advance their political agenda.

Pam Harris, who looks after her disabled son, sent me an e-mail with the results of the election that would determine which union, if any, would represent people like her:

The unions lost, the people won:

SEIU received 293 votes
AFSCME received 220 votes
NO UNION received 1018 votes

Michelle Malkin has more.

Praise the Lord! All the home health care workers dodged a big bullet on this one.
Great work, everyone.

Love you in the video MP from Mill Park Sat!
I wanted to go, but was tied up, glad the weather finally cooperated. God Bless
