Democratic motivation

The Democrats want to keep Sunnyview Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and the Republicans want to sell it.
The Democrats reason that it’s a long-standing tradition. They fear for the jobs of Sunnyview’s SEIU-union employees and the patients living there.
The Republicans want to privatize it because it’s losing money and costing the county taxpayers close to $1 million a year to keep it open. Makes sense to me.
If the sale goes through, chances are very good no one will lose their job. The patients will still have a roof over their heads; the care will be the same that they get now; and the SEIU eventually might not have any union dues to collect, which will give those employees a raise, and less money for the SEIU to donate to the Democratic Party.
Sounds to me as if the Republicans have a win-win proposition.

Controls go here
