Michael Bennet (D-Co.) on Monday came out in opposition to the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) which seeks to, among other noxious elements, strip employees of the right to a secret ballot when voting whether or not to unionize their workplace.  Stripping secret ballot protections from individual employees for a unionization vote opens the door for notorious Big Labor intimidation tactics to produce its desired outcome.  Read more.........  If they should win election in the Senate, will they say this after they win?  Probably not.
