The Lavender Lapeled Lord of Labor, Andy Stern (the boss of the Purple People Eaters Union aka the Service Employees International Union [or SEIU, for short]) is hinting that the job-destroying union bailout bill known as the oxy-moronically named Employee Free Choice Act may be rigor mortis in the making.
According to The Hill, Stern (who is known for projectile vomiting whatever is on his mind) stated during a panel discussion that 2010 is going to be the year for EFCA…or not.
“The Democrats really have a historic and decisive moment, for anybody who runs a business there are moments where you sort of make big choices,” Stern told the audience. “They have 60 votes for the first time and probably the last time they’re gonna have it. They have to decide if they are an army of one or an army of 60.”
Stern said that card check would be a testing ground for the Democrats in 2010, and “a question of whether the Democrats can act as a functioning, effective team.”
The SEIU chief seemed less than optimistic about the party’s ability to pull together to support the legislation, though.
“They just have to decide, if not I think they’re going to miss a historic moment that won’t come back for a very long time,” Stern said. “And so far I wouldn’t bet with them.“
This is an important video to watch of the exchange.
Correction, Mr. Stern: This is more of a question of whether the Democrats will put their party and special interests (like union bosses) ahead of their country.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES It has long been the conventional wisdom that Republicans and conservatives just don’t “get it” with respect to popular culture. It was actually a relatively fair critique as Republicans often railed about popular culture and attempting (incorrectly) to blame it on the downfall of society. It paid, electorally, to shun and mock mainstream pop culture rather than engage and | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES You know what I have really gotten sick of? The ridiculous petty bickering between Cruz and Rubio as the two of them jockey to be the last guy standing to take on Trump. They are both operating from the unproven (and likely erroneous) assumption that they can duke it out forever without taking on Trump in the process, and | Read More »
