Obama TOTALLY blew EFCA. The Unions spent almost 500 MILLION dollars to elect Democrats to Congress and Obama in order to pass EFCA. Had it passed, union membership would have doubled in 4 years, contributions to Democrats would have doubled in the 2012 election and the Democrats with Union money would have achieved power that they had not seen since the 1940’s.
Instead, through sheer incompetence, the Unions got NOTHING for their money. Pelosi played chicken with Reid and refused to pass EFCA until Reid acted in the Senate. Obama just sat on the sidelines trying to pass Obamacare.
The Unions got NOTHING but the shaft. How can the Union Leader’s go back to their members and say “We blew 500 MILLION dollars on these clowns?”
No wonder the Unions are upset! I am surprised they turned out the vote for Reid who did NOTHING for them but take their money! Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Or as P.T. Barnum said, “there is a sucker born every minute.“
No matter how you describe it, the Union Leader’s got taken to the cleaners. The only swindle that was greater was Bernie Madoff.
Obama made every dirty deal in the book to pass Obamacare. Name me ONE deal he cut to pass EFCA!!!
We might want to classify the Union Leader’s under Einstein’s definition as insane, since the Union leader’s keep doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result!
The Unions will probably not have another chance to ever pass EFCA again. Call them suckers, insane or just plain foolish; the bottom line is they keep expecting the Democrats to do something other than just take their money.
Did I mention the Union Leaders may be insane?
