Report: Nancy Pelosi’s PACs have reaped over $1 million from teachers unions

Public school teachers have for years insisted they are indispensable. That’s a hard sell when teachers’ unions — along with help from Democratic politicians and lots of members’ dues — have fought to keep schools closed during the pandemic.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi raked in over $1 million from political action committees associated with teachers’ unions, Fox News reported. This money was pouring in as many unions were fighting for schools to stay closed during the coronavirus pandemic.

The House Majority PAC associated with Pelosi was flooded with the seven-figure donations from the American Federation of Teachers PAC union money. The funds were meant to bolster campaigns for House Democrats who sparred with Republicans over school openings. The take is expected to carry those politicians through the 2022 midterm elections.

The totals are staggering as is the timing of the donations. The AFT funneled $1.6 million to Democrats between Jan. 1 and March 31 of this year compared to only $45,000 during the same period in the 2020 election cycle.

Notably, AFT president Randi Weingarten held the line against schools reopening in person until only a couple of weeks ago. This was in direct contradiction to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations, but somehow both Weingarten and Pelosi echoed the same “real concerns about ventilation” that would justify keeping the schools empty.

Other unions like the National Education Association’s PAC also contributed record amounts in the first quarter of this year. Democrats received $371,000 in donations, accounting for a year-over-year increase of 38% compared to the $269,000 collected in the first three months of last year.

Meanwhile, many students are only beginning to return to in-person learning for the first time since the pandemic began over a year ago. While many districts had been offered live online instruction during that time, some had none at all, the Washington Post reported. It was mostly the non-white students who suffered from this, giving lie to Democrats’ supposed advocacy for minority Americans.

Parents are rightly concerned about the impact of having their children isolated and learning from computer screens for months on end. Even as other facets of life returned to normal, the teachers’ unions held out as long as it could. They’ve tried to convince parents that public school is vital, but that’s hard to believe in light of how much money and effort they spent to keep teachers from teaching.

Too bad that mainstream media will not report this truth. Shame on them. Pelosi is a money grubbing power hungry communist. Just think how she sat behind Biden with her nose stuck up in the air. She will blame Trump. So sad for Americans.

Your subject may have made that much money. But, with bidumb in office, expect to return 50%+ to the IRS after audit. Expect an exponentially increased as time goes on.

Teachers unions don’t give a damn about students, the only thing they worry about is collection of union dues so they can lobby morons or spend big money on politicians who don’t give a damn about children getting a good education.

Where do you think the teachers unions have huge investments, China is a good place to look. So you may see why they don’t want to go against Biden.

AS a retired teacher I agree. Also many teachers are FORCED to join these large unions brfore being allowed to join their state union. Even if you do not agree with their stance you have NO SAY IN WHERE THE MONEY GOES> . One reason I retired in 1991 .

Has anyone else noticed that the very first post every single time on this website is about making scam money? Probably the ones who owns this site doing it. If it is, get out. We are being taken for a big enough ride as it is from Biden/Harris and we do not need this. Let it be known that whatever thousands you may make on this scam, Joe Biden has a plan to confiscate all of it. This could lead to the owners of this site to be sued and taken down.

When are the citizens of this country going to really wake up and open their eyes wide open and see just what the democrats are trying to do to all of our kids in schools. What the school unions are doing to our kids. The people of this country need to put senators and congress people in office who will do just what the American people elect them to do for this country. You know it states in out constitution , “WE THE PEOPLE” that means this country is for the people not the people in our governments. All the people in this country really need to vote people into office that will do what the American people elect them to do for them and this country.

Pelosi, you must be looking in your own pocketbook, not theirs. We will never believe anything you have to say again. You’ve shown America your true colors, and they’re not Red, White, and Blue.

It is hard to imagine that the government and trade unions pay huge taxpayer money to teachers to ensure that these teachers never teach the children of these same taxpayers. – Animal Farm – George Orwell!

I know several teachers. All of them are spending much more time doing remote teaching…..12 to 16 hours a day plus weekends…….and as a whole, the students are falling behind because of at home distractions.

The parents are distressed about the schools being closed, but enlighten me as they fuss, they head to the polls and reelect the same folks keeping the schools closed? Why? Useful idiots is the answer. A school board was taken over and a new board was elected in one state. They need to do this and if the teachers will not work, then fire them and hire new ones, there is NO shortage of teachers coming out of college. It is the easiest degree to obtain.

This is why Biden wants everyone to have a union! They rake in “dues” which get funneled to Democrats! They don’t do a darn thing for workers anymore but steal their money! They’re the mob in disguise and just as vile. Do you want the mob in your state violating your rights to vote as you want? Because they tell you to vote democratic or else.
