Barky buys a lot of trouble if he tries to do this right now.
In the House, a number of Democrats from marginal districts pressured Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama to move the bill to the Senate rather than have the House act on it. And it’s worth noting that the Obama Administration has not made any public comments on this bill lately. I think Big Labor has overreached. They claim to have the votes to override a filibuster in the Senate (as Al Franken appears more likely than not to be Senator), but there is nervousness in their ranks now.

Good. Hope this stinking legislation doesn’t even get close to being voted on.
NO - it is coming soon. Barak Mugabe still has the numbers in Congress, and this is high on his list.
This will put many businesses out of business.
The Democrats will pass this. They have promised their supporters they will. They just need to hide in some other bill that they can pass in the middle of the night without anyone reading it. Or they will let this bill die and then rename it something else and then pass it. Don’t get optimistic about this. It has already been bought and paid for.
He can just ask the Nancyperson to call up the bill and move on it and it will be done.
Just what IS the supposed rationale behind this laughingly misnamed “Employee Free Choice Act”? As long as there has been elections, it has been recognized that the secret ballot is what prevents intimidation and allows anyone to vote his or her true choice.
Take away the secret ballot and it become obvious who the dissenters are, thus allowing those with less-than-pure motives to apply pressure — all KINDS of pressure — to ensure everyone votes the way they “are supposed to”.
I know this is their ultimate goal. Anyone with half of a semi-active brain cell can see that. But they can’t actually put it that way, so what IS their supposed motivation.
Anyone know? I can’t figure it out.

The other day, George McGovern, biggest liberal on earth, ran a radio ad AGAINST card check. Hard hitting ad too.

If the democratic party continues on their current trend of making laws and taxing everything not nailed down; there will be no Congress. Your time is almost up, Ladies and Gentlemen. There will be no further need for you. Your useful uselessness has expired. If for some magic reason; you get to stay and I doubt it very much; your job will be changed into a community service one probably with very little or no pay. That’s the rules our new President set out. Community work is what it’s all about.
Boy, are you being led over the clift.
