Employee Free Choice Act - Tyranny of the Majority?

Just when the last of the dirt was thrown onto the grave of the misnamed Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA), it is resurrected by the likes of Harry Reid.

Not happy that the Republicans have been able to stymie his plan to create the United States of France through use of the filibuster, he has a new plan -- do away with it.


Discussed in detail in this week's Time Magazine,,8599,2008012,00.html, the plan goes something like this . . .

Wait for the lame duck session after the elections in November when the lame ducks have nothing left to lose and then amend the Senate rules to limit or eliminate the filibuster in Senate which has been a political delaying tactic since the adoption of the Constitution.

If they can pull this off, we will know first hand what the "tyranny of the majority" really means. We'll also see the unionization of America. EFCA is a sure thing to pass the House between now and the time a new House is seated next January. The only hold-up has been the Senate which may no longer be the case. We shall see.

Stakes are high.

Suggest you consider contacting your Senator and let them know how you feel.
