Columnist Scott Reeder is at it again, going after workers and unions. In his Aug. 27 column he again uses the Illinois Policy Institute as his source for “facts” about unions in Illinois.
The institute is a right-wing organization that engages in anti-labor, anti-union, anti-health care attacks under the guise of factual research.
Mr. Reeder is simply a mouthpiece for this so-called nonpartisan research organization. Anything he says needs to be taken for what it is, right-wing propaganda. It’s about as reliable as organizations run by the Koch brothers or Karl Rove.
Dear U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, please note the correlation: Chicago crime stats are down and Cook County Jail is overcrowded. Maybe the right people are in custody.
