Communist Party Joins Mark Udall in Support of Anti-Secret Ballot Bill

Boulder liberal Mark Udall, Big Labor bosses, 20 percent of the American voting public, and now the Communist Party are all in agreement. What's the issue? Why, the so-called Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) - which deprives workers of a secret ballot in union elections.

What's the connection?
  • Mark Udall took $75,000 from union leaders to put his name as a co-sponsor on the Employee Free Choice Act, despite admitting to "serious reservations."

  • 8 out of 10 American voters, including 8 out of 10 Democrats, believe the EFCA's approach of robbing workers of the secret ballot is wrong. Opposition to this bill includes majorities "of every age, race, geographic group and both genders."

  • Today's big news? Communist Party USA has given its hearty endorsement to EFCA, saying the upcoming elections "must be about working people’s vision — our vision of a new direction for our country." A new direction that apparently includes no secret ballots for workers.
I guess this website's humorous theme isn't quite so far off base, after all.

Hilarious! Udall and the Commies both support a bill that will take away rights from the workers! The communists love it because there will be far more unionization once you take away the free ballots of workers and submit them to the union intimidation that will surely acompany "card check". And Udall loves it because the Union bosses will continue to line his pockets, and will be able to give him even more ducats as their ranks swell with newly intimidated workers who have no determination which candidates their hard earned wages go to. Terrible bill. Bad Mark Udall, bad.
