Despite the multiple attempts by Tom Allen to downplay his support for the Employee Free Choice Act, Mainers are getting a large dose of the facts in the bill. Somewhat unknown before the Employee Freedom Action Committee shed light on the issue, EFCA has now become a major issue this November. While Mainers for Employee Freedom continue to put pressure on those who support the issue and broadcast the details of the bill to the citizens of Maine, the politicians who secretly sponsored the bill in Congress are now forced to attack the messengers and not debate the facts.
Many Maine liberal websites were astonished when George McGovern wrote an Op-Ed in the Wall Street Journal and said “being a good steward of democracy means telling our friends ‘no’ when they press for a course that in the long run may weaken labor and disrupt a tried and trusted method for conducting honest elections.” So much so that one site said “no” to a blogger who posted in agreement with McGovern and banned him from further columns. The facts are there and Big Labor and its supporters can’t stand it!
Ninety-two percent of Mainer’s agree that it is important to keep the right to vote in a private ballot election for unions. Special interest politicians like Tom Allen are finding this out the hard way.
