Starting June 20, the Freedom Foundation will began airing TV spots in the King County/Puget Sound cable market from three home-based caregivers.
The Freedom Foundation has an outstanding video production team with a keen ability to capture the stories of the real people harmed by the union financial shakedown racket. Despite union rhetoric about “the workers,” the truth is the union bosses are building an empire of money and power by exploiting their ability to siphon resources from the people who actually earned it.
Rosetta Horne, a Tacoma minister caring for her disabled mother, opted out with the Freedom Foundation’s help in July 2014 – immediately after the Harris ruling was issued. In her commercial, she explains that, as a person of faith, she was appalled to learn the union was using her dues to fund causes like Planned Parenthood.
“Luckily, I learned the truth and took back my freedom,” she tells viewers.
Julie Roberts, a resident of Grays Harbor, has been caring for her disabled mother for the past 15 years and, like Horne, resented the union using her money to fund MoveOn.org, the Inslee and Obama campaigns and a laundry list of other candidates and causes she doesn’t believe in.
“The unions are always politically involved,” she said. “It’s always where they can make the most money, and it never benefits the members.”
Michelle Peterson, is an Everett resident who provides care for her daughter and was angered that SEIU 775 was raking off a percentage of the funds earmarked by Medicaid to provide that care.
“The union has been using my money to fund lawsuits in order to keep us in the dark about our rights,” she explains in the commercial. “I don’t think the union is honest about how they use our money. They use it to fund their own agenda.”
