This blog post and video from FreedomWorks are very revealing about the supporters of the so-called “Employee Free Choice Act” (H.R. 800). Then again, when is robbing workers of the secret ballot an act that favors “free choice”? Few bills debated by Congress have had such an Orwellian name.
Amidst the intense interest in the immigration debate, the U.S. Senate votes tomorrow to close the debate on H.R. 800. While it appears highly unlikely that the threshold of 60 votes will be reached, it will be interesting to note who sides with common sense and worker privacy, and who sides to give privileges to special interest groups at the expense of an individual’s power to choose.
