Union Bosses Threaten Elected Officials — Toe The Big Labor Line

Leo Gerard, the boss of the United Steelworkers Union, warned Democrats not to compromise at all on the fiscal cliff. Gerard said any Democrats who does get weak knees isn’t a “real Democrat.” and suggested they will suffer the same fate as former Democratic Senator Blanche Lincoln. Lincoln lost the general election in 2010 after she wasted a lot of her resources fighting off a more liberal challenger in the primary earlier that year.  And any Democrat that gets weak knees on that isn’t a real Democrat. And they ought to remember what happened to Blanche Lincoln,” Gerard said.

So much for bipartisan compromise.
