Thomas Donohue of the Chamber of Commerce threatens to ship all the jobs overseas if the Employee Free Choice Act passes. I wonder how the voters like being threatened that way. Not much, I’d guess.
He also – publicly – barks out orders to the Senate Republicans as if they were formally as well as actually on his payroll:
“On this deal… there’s no compromise. There’s no credit for amending the bill, the only credit anyone gets is for voting against cloture. Am I clear?”
Now if I were a Republican Senator with any self-respect …
… oh, never mind!
