Big Labor Confident of Card Check Passage

In an exclusive interview with the Washington Times, the government-affairs director of the AFL-CIO said he is certain that organized labor’s top priority — the Card Check Scam Bill — will pass Congress and be signed by President Barack Obama. “I have no doubt it will pass and will be signed,” William Samuel told reporters and editors of the Washington Times.

Mr. Samuel also said that the more than $300 million spent by labor unions to educate workers was crucial to the Democrats’ success in key battleground states, such as Ohio and Michigan — and as such, Samuel expects a return on his investment of the forced union dues money of thousands of workers.
