The controversial Card Check Scam Bill is causing a “quandary” for Barack Obama, according to his hometown newspaper, the Chicago Tribune.
Calling the bill one of the “thorniest issues his administration will face,” Obama is being squeezed between his union benefactors and the business community “which also contributed heavily to his campaign and his party and will be crucial to his efforts to fix the crippled economy and overhaul the health-care system.”
Frankly we are suspicious. There are no overt signs that Obama is backing away from the union bosses. Barry Broad, a Teamsters’ lobbyist, said: “Unions spoke with a nearly unanimous voice: This is their No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 priority in the next administration.” Obama and his Pro-Big Labor team know it.
