With the election 22 days away, Presidential candidate John McCain has changed his stump speech to highlight Senator Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and Senator Reid’s plan to effectively eliminate private elections for working Americans.
“Senator Obama is measuring the drapes, and planning with Speaker Pelosi and Senator Reid to raise taxes, increase spending, take away your right to vote by secret ballot in labor elections, and concede defeat in Iraq. But they forgot to let you decide. My friends, we’ve got them just where we want them.” (emphasis mine)
It is very significant that Senator McCain is campaigning on preserving the secret ballot in workplace elections and blocking legislation (EFCA) that could have devastating effects on an economy that is already in the doldrums.
