In 2007, Senator Arlen Specter voted for the Card Check Forced Unionism bill when he was a Republican. Then, in 2009, he helped block the Card Check Forced Unionism bill when he was a Republican. In the first session of this congress, he announced he was going to oppose the Card Check bill as a Democrat. Now as a Democrat running for reelection he has worked overtime to carry the union boss agenda in the Senate. Now, this current posture is paying dividends as he racks up endorsements of big labor including the SEIU, the PA AFL-CIO, the Teamsters and other big labor unions.
But, it appears that rank and file voters may reject the insider deal as polls of Democrat voters now show a majority rejecting Specter.
