Employee Free Choice: Fergawdssakes, Stop the Scare Tactics!

I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of GOP vapors and scare tactics. As Digby said:

I’ve been hearing rumblings since the election that Democrats in congress were getting wobbly on the Employee Free Choice Act and that the administration was inclined to push it down the agenda. Presumably this is because the wingnuts are planning to stage a mass case of the maidenly vapors the minute they bring it. It’s one of those bizarre issues that animates the cretins, like tort reform, purely because of the slogan.

The Employee Free Choice Act isn’t the end of civilization, no matter what Biff and Bunny told you at the yacht club.

And frankly, given the business track record of several of the CEOs featured in the above video, who get the vapors every time EFCA comes up? I have to say that supporting EFCA just got even easier.

It’s more than that, though: it makes economic sense and it’s good for working families.

But why let that get in the way of a perpetual wingnutty lie?

SEIU, who produced this video, has more.

PS — No kidding: put down liquids before viewing. You have been warned…
