Craig Becker's Rejection by Senate Shows Why the Senate Sucks
We won.... sorta....
We knocked on doors for Obama and talked about EFCA. It helped get our base excited and got them out to vote.
Craig Becker is Change to Win, via the SEIU. He's basically a Teamster. The Senate didn't allow his nomination to come to an up and down vote. The GOP is holding him hostage.
This should be a big deal. Teamsters should be on the radio, in print, and on TV blasting the Senate for this. They are losers, the people that voted against him. They shouldn't be allowed to have a stranglehold on government. It's obvious that the economy needs demand economics to restore value to the middle class, unions do this, and they do it as a Non Government Organization. The anti-unionism that exists in the minority's circles is disgusting, and it should be brought out for everyone to see.
Here in Kentucky we see "I support coal" messages all the time, but there are few pro-union commercials, basketball team lodges, etc. I believe this is a grave mistake - as is bowing to a party that doesn't bow to you - two Democratic Senators voted against taking an up and down vote.
When the labor movement was most successful, it had it's own party. It's time to do it again.
