Truthdig – Ear to the Ground – Pro-Union Bill in Trouble.

Sen. Arlen Specter (R., Pa.) said [Tuesday] that he would oppose legislation making it easier for workers to form unions, dealing a severe blow to organized labor’s top political priority as he faces a 2010 primary challenge from the right.

Union leaders were counting on Specter to be the 60th vote needed to stop an expected GOP filibuster of the Employee Free Choice Act later this year. He was the lone Senate Republican to support consideration of the measure in 2007, when it stalled in the Senate.

“It is a very emotional issue, with labor looking to this legislation to reverse the steep decline in union membership, and business expressing great concern about added costs which would drive more companies out of business or overseas,” Specter said in a Senate floor speech

Fuck that Noise! Sen. Specter, stop acting like you’re on Texas A&M’s Student Senate and actually represent the interest of your constituents!! [I’m speaking to Senate in two hours…]
