Obama & the unions The union boys lined up to vote for Obama. How did Obama repay them you ask? Oh, he didn't repay the rank and file, Obama repayed the Union Bosses. You know, the guys who herded the membership to vote en masse for Obama. Here's what the average union guy got out of the deal: Obama will Implement 'Card Check' in the Workplace. The unions helped elect Obama and expect some payback. The union bosses are demanding approval of the Employee Free Choice Act, which, naturally, being a government program, seeks to take away workers' free choice. The act would eliminate the confidential balloting in which workers now determine whether they want to be unionized. Even former Democratic presidential candidate George McGovern warns that the measure could deny "freedom to many Americans." Get it? The union bosses and employers get to CHECK the way you vote on union issues! Of course, since the union bosses are SUPER HONEST people, this won't have any affect on your job if you don't vote the way THEY want you to vote, right? Oh, this is fun to watch! The union boys who voted for Obama screwed themselves! Yee Haw!
