“I think we have to get the money out of the teachers unions going into campaigns. It’s the wrong way for us to go. We’ve got to separate that.”

- Context: Speaking in New York at a forum sponsored by NBC, Education Nation, Romney said that although he is not against the right to strike, he is against teachers unions giving money to political campaigns. Romney, however, has no problem allowing corporations and the wealthy from donating unlimited sums of money to Super PAC’s. Super PAC’s supporting the Romney campaign will be spending hundreds of millions of dollars on advertising attacking President Obama. Donor’s such as the Koch Brothers and Sheldon Adelson have pledged tens of millions of dollars of their own money to defeat the President.
