After 40 years as a Washington politician, California Democrat Congressman George Miller has announced he is retiring.
Miller, a staunch ally of today's union bosses (and large recipient of union contributions) was one of the main architects of the hallucinogenically-named Employee Free Choice Act--a bill sought by union bosses to effectively eliminate workers' right to vote in a secret-ballot election for or against unionization.
Although the card-check bill passed the House of Representatives in 2007, it failed in the Senate.
Following Barack Obama's inauguration in 2009, Miller again introduced EFCA--only to watch it die in the Senate a second time.
Over the course of his career, Miller took in nearly $2.4 million in union campaign contributions--not counting the money spent on getting out the vote efforts--and often rewarded his Big Labor friends by doing their bidding in Congress.
According to Politico, "Miller’s decision is a personal loss for Pelosi and is sure to be seen as a blow to Democrats."
Although Millers's retirement may be a loss for Pelosi, there is certainly no shortage of union-bought Democrats who will line up to take his place.
"Truth isn't mean. It's truth."
