Next week Congress is expected to introduce legislation that will eliminate the secret ballot in union elections, effectively legalizing union intimidation. Apparently, the unions are already celebrating the passage of this radical agenda and the financial windfall it will produce. Today, they opened up their annual winter conference at a swanky Florida beach resort, while American workers across the nation worry about losing their jobs.

Recently, there has been widespread outrage directed at Wall Street executives, corporate CEO’s and auto leaders for wasting money directed towards saving jobs and rescuing the American economy. We suspect the AFL-CIO leaders will say they had nowhere else to hold this meeting.
