White House considering naming SEIU's Andy Stern to deficit reduction panel

At the state level, public sector unions are a large part of the reason many state governments facing massive deficits, and in some cases, possibly default.

So I find it troubling that the White House is considering naming Andy Stern, president of the Service Employees International Union, to serve on a deficit reduction panel.

Stern is a prominent backer of ObamaCare, and boasts that his union, which counts many government employees among its dues-paying members, spent over $60 million to get Obama elected president.

He is part of the problem.
