And you thought Congress was maybe the branch of government to write and pass laws. Right now, it looks to be a toss up between Andy Stern, the Apollo Alliance, and Richard Trumka, President of the AFL-CIO.
Another fine ‘how-do-you-do’, as the CHAOS continues inside our government. Smart Americans know what to expect next when the country becomes rudderless – look to history and Jimmy Carter.
Congress will move to pass controversial “card check” legislation this year, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka predicted Sunday.
Trumka said that lawmakers would pass the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) as well as healthcare reform this year, despite Republicans having picked up enough votes in the Senate to sustain a filibuster.
“I think we’ll get health care done and I think we’ll get labor law reform done before the year’s up,” Trumka said during an appearance on CNN.
I personally believe that the EFCA is as dangerous to the republic as Obamacare’s fascist mandate, bureaucrats standing between you and your doctor, the penalties, and the access the government has to your bank account.
“The Employee Free Choice Act, John, is not just good for unions; it’s good for the economy because it will bring more money into people’s pockets across the board, so that everybody can spend a little more and create an economy that really does work for everybody,” Trumka said. “And that’s where we’re going to go to.”
This proposed law will only continue the ponzi scheme of union legacy costs which at some point will collapse just as Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security are destined to.
Senate Democrats had reportedly been working on crafting a compromise version of the “card check” bill in order to get 60 votes in the upper chamber. But with Republicans’ 41-vote bloc and a competitive election cycle for Democrats expected this fall, it’s not clear what path EFCA faces going forward.
I freakin’ detest liars, thieves, and the squatters in the District of Criminals.
