Controversial legislation that would make it easier to organize unions will pass this year, Vice President Joe Biden said today.
Appearing at a Labor Day rally in Pittsburgh, Biden praised the role of unions in building the middle class and said the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) will make it through Congress before the end of the year, the Associated Press reports.
That's a very optimistic timeline, considering that Democrats are already putting all their legislative muscle behind healthcare reform.

Sounds like a way for the Obama administration to change the subject. Obamacare and Capntax may be dead letters, so try card check (or some other sort of gimmick with the same effect) again. Liberals are nothing if not persistent. Hopefully, the country will eventually wake up and stop electing so many of them.

The idea that unions built the middle class is preposterous. American small businesses and capitalism built the middle class. The unions built the democrat party and all its corruption!
