Robert Hurt Delivers Remarks on Preserving Workplace Freedoms and Reining in NLRB Rulemaking - Congressman Robert Hurt (R-VA) today delivered the following remarks on the House floor in support H.R. 3094, a bill that would preserve the protections and freedoms that American workers deserve, allowing them to participate in a full and fair election process. H.R. 3094 passed the House today with bipartisan support by a vote of 235-188. “Thank you, Mr. Chairman, and I thank the gentleman for yielding.  “I rise today in support of the Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act offered by Chairman Kline, and I thank the Chairman for his leadership on this issue.  “For the past three years we have seen a vast expansion in the size and scope of the federal government, which has resulted in a suffering economy and job market, and an unfriendly business environment for job creation and investment.  “A recent troubling example of this government overreach is the National Labor Relation Board’s proposed rulemaking, which would alter long standing precedent of procedures that govern union elections.  “These new rules would do little more than empower big labor bosses by restricting employers from communicating with their employees during the process, preventing the employees from gaining access to critical information necessary to make informed decisions for their votes, and diminishing the fundamental rights of both employees and employers across the country.  Read more........

Rep. John Kline: NLRB is a Runaway Board and my Bill is the Way to Rein it in - Hot Air - On a conference call with bloggers this afternoon, Congressman John Kline (R-Minn.) pinned the blame on President Obama for an out-of-control National Labor Relations Board and urged his colleagues in Congress to pass the Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act, which would address certain disastrous NLRB decisions.  “President Obama — this is his board,” Kline said. “He is supporting this if he’s not willing to step in there and help put some reins on what I think is a runaway board.”  In recent weeks, the NLRB has rushed to pass a rule that would shorten the unionization election process. Snap elections would allow union representatives ample time to make the case for unionization, but limit the amount of time business representatives would have to make the case against unionization.  Read more.......  Article contributed by Steve Peters.



Robot Romney Fails to Face Fox's "Center Seat" -- Appears Inconvenienced During One on One Interview - Townhall - I don't know why Romney failed to appear on Fox's "Center Seat" and face the music from the likes of Krauthammer, Goldberg, and Willaims just like the other GOP candidates. What I do know is that this guy fails to connect with me every time he speaks--especially when he appears testy and contemptuous like he did in this interview with Bret Baier.  Read more........  Steve Peters:  No conservative activist will ever be inspired to sing Carole King's, "I Feel The Earth Move", when they think about Mitt Romney as their candidate. The real question is will they along with a majority of Americans be sufficiently motivated to get him elected looking back at all the destruction that Obama has heaped upon America over the last four years?
