Sen. Harkin Promises Return to Card Check


The Hill is reporting that Iowa’s leading Democrat, Senator Tom Harkin, is promising that the lame-duck Senate will again take up Big Labor’s favored Employee Free Choice Act, (EFCA), the famous card check act that is neither good for employees nor one that facilitates “free choice” of any kind.

Apparently, what’s bad for the nation is easier to push when Democrats already feel that the 2010 election will erase their giant majorities in Congress so they want to launch a last ditch effort to sneak this through before the people can speak at the ballot box.

And isn’t that just the thing, here? The people did speak in 2006 and 2008, after all. They spoke in favor of Democrats. Yet, even with all that support Harkin and his far left cronies couldn’t lead their overwhelming majority to pass the jobs killing bill. Even their fellow Democrats were against it because they knew the voters stood against it.

Yet now, when they feel that many of them will lose their seats anyway, they want to go back to pushing this bad policy? Isn’t that an admission that Democrats do not care what the people want?

Plainly it is.

Yet, Harkin is claiming that the lame-duck Senate will take this up anyway.

“To those who think it’s dead, I say think again,” Harkin said on the liberal Bill Press radio show.

Harkin is unashamedly saying, “Damn the people, we have big money donors in Big Labor to satisfy.”

Those of you that stand against federal control of our worker’s wages, benefits, and pensions and those of you that stand against union bosses being given the color of federal authority to place their iron boots on the neck of our struggling economy should call your senators and representatives and again urge them to steer clear of the EFCA.
