Inside Today's Bulletin Obama, Dems Are Friends Of Labor Bosses, Workers' Enemies By: Herb Denenberg, The Bulletin 09/12/2008 email this storyEmail to a friendpost a commentPost a Commentprinter friendlyPrinter-friendly The Democratic Party and its presidential nominee, Sen. Barack Obama, like to pose as the friends of workers and their unions. In fact, they are the friends of the labor bosses, but are enemies of the workers and their unions. They blindly support the teachers' unions and their policies, which have assured that public education so often fails. This means that instead of being a real friend of the teachers and their unions, the Democratic Party assures pressure for school choice and pressure for less support of a failing public education system. The teachers' unions and the Democratic Party are only assuring the continuous shrinkage of the public education system and jobs for teachers in that system. They claim to be friends of workers and their unions by supporting restrictions on trade, but history demonstrates that protectionism only means less trade, fewer jobs and a weaker economy. Right now it is our international trade that is most important in keeping our economy afloat.

And how does Obama feel about the Workers Party? Sure would like an answer to that one.

And here's another example relating to the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA). This legislation now being considered by Congress is one of the top priorities of the bosses of organized labor. But it is anti-democratic (with a small "d") in the most fundamental sense, as it would deprive workers of a secret ballot in deciding whether or not to form a union. That means also that it is deceptively named. There's no "free choice" in the act, but only the end of the secret ballot in union elections. This is one of the most common forms of fraud, courtesy of the U.S. Congress - giving a bill a noble sounding name, when it is actually designed for totally different and often totally undesirable ends. The bill should be named the Abolish the Secret Ballot in Union Elections Act.

Barack supports ending the secret ballot in union elections. How long before Democrats end the secret ballot for President? If you vote wrong, a community organizer will send some activists with baseball bats your way.
