The taxpayers pay taxes. The taxes go into the Stimulus from Washington D.C. The bulk of the Stimulus bucks go to unions to keep their members employed. Union members thus employed then pay their dues to the unions. Union dues go then to the Democrat Party. The Democrat Party uses the money received to help elect Democrats to office at all levels of government. So you have a money laundering scheme that uses taxpayer funds taken from even those who oppose Democrats. Sweet deal.
