Pelosi: We want Card Check ASAP

posted at 3:35 pm on July 29, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

Consider this a little reminder for those who seem to have trouble determining whether Nancy Pelosi is a liberal.  Having Pelosi announce to a union crowd (here it’s the Communication Workers of America) that she supports Card Check is a little like saying water is wet, which is why Joe Sestak made such a fool out of himself with his tapdance on Pelosi’s agenda.  Of course she wants Card Check to become law, and not just for altruistic progressive reasons, either:

Pelosi wants Card Check in order to get unions to increase their membership rolls — and the dues they get to collect. Those dues will mean bigger political contributions, which will mean more money to the Democratic Party.  Had the Senate passed EFCA, Democrats may have already started seeing the money roll into their coffers.

It’s a good reminder of the stakes in the midterm elections.  A big win in the House will mean an end to EFCA, which would have to be reintroduced in the next session of Congress if the Senate takes no action on it.  That’s also a good reminder to be wary of the lame-duck Congress after the midterms, and to keep a close eye on the Senate especially.

CUNNING STUNT NANCY

Wow, Pelosi wants to legalize union intimidation. Who would have thunk?

ButterflyDragon on July 29, 2010 at 3:37 PM

Who is “we,” Nancy?

It certainly isn’t the public you’re referring to.

Good Lt on July 29, 2010 at 3:37 PM

“We” want you to resign ASAP…

“We” win…

No Union for me I’ll buy Chinese first they own us anyway thanks to dimwits like this!

Which is why we need to eliminate the incestuous relationship between the Democratic Party and government unions.

She seems so fake all the time. Her words,her actions, everything. I am not convinced she is human.

IowaWoman on July 29, 2010 at 3:43 PM

Fortunately, “want” is a long way from “have”…..and the further we can keep Nancy from “having”, the better.

Bishop on July 29, 2010 at 3:39 PM

Except for the fact she’s gotten almost everything she’s wanted…stimulus, Obmacare, Finance…don’t count her out on getting EFCA and don’t rule out the Democrats ability to steal elections…does anyone see the Republicans developing and implementing a plan to stop the massive voter fraud that has permeated this system?

I don’t see the Democrats stopping their power grab…I don’t see the Republicans trying to stop them so I do see “We the people” having to step up to do it and all I can think of is this is leading to some type of civil war again…

CCRWM on July 29, 2010 at 3:46 PM

Of course they want it NOW, because it’s dead in november.

Fighton03 on July 29, 2010 at 3:47 PM

We need a national “right to work” law. That will finally put the union thugs out of business.

Everyone should be hammering their congresscritters to come up with one.

Another nail in the coffin.

Preferably that of liberalism and not of America.

Why do we need unions?

Can she take returning to back bencher status? Squatting in a corner where no one gives a damn what she says? All the Speaker perks and attention given to another? Thrown away like used Kleenex? Eventually giving up politics to spend more time with her family?
YES, WE CAN!

a capella on July 29, 2010 at 4:07 PM

Peloser will do absolutely anythuing to keep what she should never have had. She is living proof liberalism that is a mental disorder.

volsense on July 29, 2010 at 4:08 PM

Why is it that the Neo-progressives like to use language that is the complete opposite of it’s intended meaning?

Free-choice act????

Does anybody really think that a bunch of union thugs demanding your sign up has anything to do with free-choice?

Absolutely. And throw a burka/blanket over her. Give her a bottle of gin, and tell her to enjoy her senility.

She’s like the female version of Arlen Spector and Robert Byrd wrapped into one, grotesque package with a strand of pearls and a pumped up face.

Dangerous and creepy.

Cody1991 on July 29, 2010 at 4:24 PM

Does she know an unemployed union member pays no dues?

seven on July 29, 2010 at 4:27 PM

we have “Right to Work” in Virginia. Thank Goodness. And this is why our state perennially ranks in the top 1-3 states in which to do business. DUH.

but my oh-so-soon-to-gone Congressman, Tom Pelosi Perriello (a Dem if you hadn’t guessed) takes union money. So guess how he would vote on Card Check? he says he’s against it, but, c’mon.

the Dems think we are stupid. show them the door.

kelley in virginia on July 29, 2010 at 4:30 PM

Does she know an unemployed union member pays no dues?

seven on July 29, 2010 at 4:27 PM

Doesn’t matter. An unemployed union member will still show up wherever they’re needed to intimidate non-union members into voting yes.

That’s the whole point behind it.

ButterflyDragon on July 29, 2010 at 4:32 PM

Ford or Foreign no Gov’t Motors either!

dhunter on July 29, 2010 at 3:40 PM

Not Ford, they’re union also.

Ahh the good old CWA!! Brings back memories…like the time one CWA member threatened to lock me in a man hole until I signed my union card. Good times.

Here’s how to stop “Card Check” for good:

Require all union cards to be colored “green”!!!

Eric Holder will then automatically sue to stop the election.

The Union members should be ashamed of their Union management!

wren on July 29, 2010 at 5:16 PM

She can’t even get the name of the legislation correct. At the 14 second mark, she calls it the EmployER Free Choice Act instead of the wholly inapt named it’s been given.

The republicans need to pass right to work legislation, and call it the Employee Free Choice Act.

ObaMao is so dumb, he would probably sign it.

Slowburn on July 29, 2010 at 5:59 PM

Explain who and why amoung the 41 Republicans supports card check in the lame duck session? I don’t worry about such bizarre things. The shock of November is not going to shake the NE Republicans free nor Bennett in Idaho. The democrats have 24 senators up in 2012 so like Ben Nelson (up in 2012) suddenly likes card check in the Fall? Great move in Nebraska. This is too unlikely to even consider. Reconsoliation is out because they don’t have a budget concern or a budget.

Conan on July 29, 2010 at 7:47 PM

Just proves that they really do not give a $^!+ about you as a person. You are nothing but $$$ that is smart enough to fill in a bubble or punch a hole in the left side of the ballot.

I say put the names on the ballot in alphabetical order and refrain from showing a party affiliation with the candidates.
