Mixing it Up

Mark Mix, President of the National Right to Work Committee, lays out the political landscape as union bosses smash every political spending record on the books trying to elect “yes men” in the House, Senate and the White House:

The 2008 elections may represent the high-water mark of Big Labor’s political ascendancy. Although union operatives have already announced $300 million in national campaign expenditures, union political spending could exceed $1 billion after factoring in PACs, 527s, and state and local outlays.

What does Big Labor want? A sympathetic president and a filibuster-proof Senate majority mean less federal oversight for corrupt unions and new government-granted special privileges for union bosses.
