Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

SEIU’s Lobby Lunacy

From the American Prospect‘s blog:

John Edwards has made it very clear that he thinks lobbyists are the bane of the American political system, and will prevent needed healthcare reform. He said so again at the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Political Action Conference yesterday, warning that if you give industry lobbyists a seat at the table, “they’ll eat all the food.” So it was with some amusement that I looked up, after Edwards finished his remarks yesterday, to find a man on the stage jazzing up the crowd for the SEIU’s “Lobby Day.”

“We’re going to lobby, and then we’re going to lobby some more,” he shouted at the crowd. “And then we are going to rally.”
