Romney: EFCA Still a Threat







Romney: EFCA Still a Threat

Much of the air seems to have been let out of the so-called Employee Free Choice Act—or “card check”—balloon but that doesn’t mean small business owners can rest, according to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.


“[The Employee Free Choice Act] would be a black cloud on entrepreneurship in this country and to small business,” said Romney during a media conference call today hosted by the Workforce Fairness Institute, an anti-EFCA organization. “And if we want to see entrepreneurship in this country collapse, EFCA is the surest way to do this.”


Romney further urged people to focus less on the secret ballot controversy and more on the binding arbitration provision, which would permit the federal government to dictate employment contracts between small business owners and employees.

“This act represents and unprecedented attack on the individual rights of American citizens and American workers,” state Romney.


Labor unions and Democrats have lost ground over the past couple of weeks in their efforts to pass EFCA. Senators Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) and Arlen Specter (R-PA) recently came out in opposition to the bill. Both senators had previously been on the fence.




ALG Blasts Obama For Lack of Transparency on "Stimulus" Spending 

“What we do know is that the trillion-dollar 'stimulus' spending

bill is one of the biggest, and most expensive thefts in human

history.”—ALG President Bill Wilson.

April 13th, 2009, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today called upon the White House to explain “all aspects of the wasteful, failed trillion-dollar 'stimulus' spending bill, and not just pet projects designed for political impact.”


“Barack Obama should provide a comprehensive list of what Congress actually approved in spending instead of what Obama wants us to see," Wilson declared. “The government website is just pure political propaganda paid for by taxpayer money to divert attention from the waste and outright fraud he and Nancy Pelosi are perpetrating.”


Wilson noted that the government website, “highlights spending that promotes the Obama political agenda, but conveniently not the spending that the American people would find objectionable.”


"Why are Barack Obama and his cronies trumpeting a few road projects today?” Wilson asked. “Why isn't he showcasing the $168 billion in welfare, or the $53 billion in handouts to state governments who refuse to rein in their wasteful spending? Or, why isn't he showcasing the $17 billion sent to foreign banks via the AIG bailout?”


The website was introduced by Obama in February of this year. Wilson noted that private news media like the Wall Street Journal “were more capable at producing a comprehensive look at the spending than the bureaucracies tasked to actually spend the money.”


On February 14th, Obama promised the nation that would “allow any American to watch where the money goes... this is your money, and you deserve to know where it's going and how it's spent.”


Wilson believes that the Administration has broken its promise. “Obama is not following the website's own mission to show 'how, when, and where the funds will be spent—which states and sectors of the economy are due to receive what proportion of the funds.'”


Wilson says an honest accounting of how the money is spent may never be forthcoming. “We may never know how the money is ultimately spent,” he said.


“What we do know is that the trillion-dollar 'stimulus' spending bill is one of the biggest, and most expensive thefts in human history. By the time the money flows back into Obama and his Party's political coffers, will still be updating its website,” Wilson concluded.



CHQ - Time for Conservatives to Stop Financing the Left 

Viguerie @ Newsmax: Conservatives Should Do Their Homework Before Donating
Viguerie Blog - Many liberals despise us conservatives, but they sure love our money. Most Republicans in Congress seem oblivious to how Democrats are making this a one-party country by giving taxpayer money to nonprofits advocating and lobbying for the liberal agenda. The ones who understand the problem and who try to do something are too few to make a difference just yet. [read the blog]
