Donald Lambro of the Washington Times details Sen. Barack Obama’s support for the Card Check Scam Bill. Obama is ready to force millions of Americans into unions.
Speaking to the AFL-CIO about the bill, Obama said, “We’re ready to play offense for organized labor. It’s time we had a president who didn’t choke saying the word ‘union.’ A president who strengthens our unions by letting them do what they do best: organize our workers. . . . I will make it the law of the land when I’m president of the United States. . . . ”
Sen. McCain, on the other hand, opposes the Card Check Scam Bill. His campaign issued a statement saying the bill is “a poorly-disguised attempt by the labor unions to swell their ranks at the expense of workers’ rights and employers. John McCain strongly opposes the efforts of the labor unions to strip working Americans of their right to a private ballot in deciding whether or not to organize as a union. . . .”
At least on the issue of forcing millions of Americans to join unions without votes, the American people have a stark choice, not an echo.
