O is for Obfuscation

Lee Wishing’s blood started to boil when he heard President Obama’s speech before the AFL-CIO praising the Card Check Forced Unionism bill and rightfully so:

The reason I was angry is that President Obama pulled off a rhetorical sleight of hand. If a majority of workers want a union in the United States, they get a union. That’s been the law of the land since the National Labor Relations Act was approved in 1935. Today unions want the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) because union membership has been on the decline in the private sector for years. The EFCA would make it easier to form new local unions by virtually eliminating secret ballot union formation elections and replacing them with a “card check,” or card registration, process.
