Go read this great post by my friend Tula Connell of the AFL-CIO.
If you don't know about the HUGE vote coming up on The Employee Free Choice Act, Tula, writing at FDL, will fill you in.
Unions are the staple of a healthy democracy (see Solidarity Movement helping bring down Communism in Poland), they allowed this country to build the strongest middle class in the world during the golden years (1930s-1970s), before the idiocy of voodoo economics, deregulation and union-busting became the order of the day.
Just another thing that conservatives are too stupid to understand. Much like they have assaulted a truly free media, independent judiciary, academia and other institutions essential to a thriving republic, so the Right has made a mission of destroying unions.
This is our chance to move the ball back in the other direction again. It is good for democracy. Good for the Democratic Party. And good for working Americans. As I said, go read the piece on what is going on with this issue and what you can do to help this bill pass.
Oh yeah, and it will probably piss Rush off. And I want to continue my good week that way.
