Evenly apply disclosure rule
Commentary writer Drew Cohen’s piece on the need for the government to implement rules demanding that companies disclose their campaign contributions was conspicuously lacking an equally anguished cry for the government to do the same in regard to unions (“Make companies disclose campaign contributions,” The Forum, April 4).
Cohen is probably too busy pursuing his joint degree in law and business at George Washington University to be aware that many union members pay political contributions out of every paycheck, contributions that go almost exclusively to the Democratic Party to help elect candidates who pledge to advance unions’ agendas.
If it is any comfort to Cohen, these union contributions level the playing field against evil corporations, one of which perhaps will hire him one day.
