Big Labor's Manchurian Candidate: Rep. Thad McCotter
The Republican presidential field continues to grow but the recent announcement that House Rep. Thaddeus McCotter would join the race left most people scratching their heads. What does McCotter bring to the race? The most pro-forced unionism voting record of any of the candidates is what.
McCotter voted for the Card Check Forced Unionism bill.
McCotter supports legislation that seeks to bail out union pension funds and put taxpayers on the hook for $160 billion in unfunded union pension liabilities.
McCotter supported the Big Labor bailouts of the car companies.
And in return for the favors, Big Labor PACs have contributed nearly $80,000 to the McCotter campaign.
Folks who are concerned about the forced unionism power of Big Labor can do a lot better than McCotter, but perhaps they can not do much worse.
