One For The Good Guys?

This is G-R-E-A-T news, but with Obama in the White House, there is always a ‘but’.


Tuesday saw a huge victory for American employers and workers, as Congress rejected the nomination of radical union activist Craig Becker to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

Your grassroots response to our Monday action alert made this victory possible, as thousands of you emailed your Senators in opposition to the Becker nomination.

As you recall, Craig Becker is a former union lawyer whose out-of-mainstream views would have tilted the NLRB far in the direction of Big Labor — and posed a direct threat to American jobs.

If nominated, Becker could have allowed the unions to achieve their entire agenda (including their dangerous “Card Check” legislation) by “administrative fiat” — without the approval of Congress.

Unfortunately, some are now concerned the White House will bypass Congress by sneaking in Becker as a recess appointment.

Becker’s radical views would disrupt years of established precedent in current labor law. We urge the White House to respect the democratic process and nominate a new bi-partisan candidate to replace Becker.

How would you feel about a recess appointment of Becker by the White House? Please take a few moments to vote in our quick poll below:

Recess Appointment of Radical Union Activist Craig Becker?

Thanks, again, to so many of you for making your voices heard.

This is good news. I’m thinking that The Traitor’s days of trying to slide things through might be limited. The Blue Dog dems are scared and Tea Partiers are united. Just my personal opinion…
