Federal Unions Back Kerry

I know you’re as shocked and appalled as I am that federal employee unions are officially backing Kerry for President. American Federation of Government Employees President John Gage said, “as the current administration has pursued its scorched-earth policy against federal workers and middle-class Americans, Sen. Kerry has stood against the wholesale dismantling of the federal government through contracting out and underfunding.”
