Senate smacks down Obamunist labor thug

Lurch to the center an 'In Your Face' to Obama

The nomination of union attorney Craig Becker to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has been rejected by the full US Senate, which last week returned the nomination to President Obama for reconsideration after failing to act on it before the close of the legislative session. By unanimous consent agreement on December 24, the Senate waived a standing rule that all nominations upon which no actions are taken before the Senate adjourns are essentially rejected, so that all pending nominations will remain in status quo notwithstanding adjournment. However, Becker was among seven Obama nominees who were deemed "exceptions" to this agreement.

'Don't think we aren't keeping score, brother.'

Becker, a former law school professor and attorney for both the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and AFL-CIO, was formally nominated by the President in July, but his nomination has met with fierce resistance by the business community and Republican lawmakers. The US Chamber of Commerce, in a July 24 letter, urged the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee to hold a hearing on the nominee, citing concerns over Becker's "out of the mainstream" views on the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) as well as concerns that his SEIU ties would "lead him to advance 'card check' organizing through administrative action by the NLRB, regardless of what Congress does" with the Employee Free Choice Act. Other employer groups and industry associations have opposed Becker's nomination as well.
