Obama May Try Get Card Check Through In Jobs Bill

As we've said many times, EFCA isn't over.

Word is Obama's jobs bill will include “card-check.”

According to U.S. News, labor unions are claiming the long-delayed Employee Free Choice Act might be wrapped up in a second jobs and stimulus package the President could offer in his State of the Union Address Wednesday.

Even putting it in a popular job-creation bill won't insure its passage. Some democrats in the House representing conservative districts are already wary of endorsing the Obama agenda in light of recent Republican victories and the growing influence of the Tea Party movement.

But, Democratic leaders like Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi reportedly believe folding card-check into jobs legislation is the easiest way to get it passed, and are confident that Republicans will feel compelled to vote for the jobs legislation or face criticism at home.
