Obama Promises Unions Expanded Union Friendly Agenda

President Obama Again Promised Unions that he would  keep on fighting to pass the controversial “card check” bill. 

“We’re going to keep on fighting to pass the Employee Free Choice Act,” Obama told the union......“Getting EFCA through the Senate will be tough. It’s always been tough, it’ll continue to be tough. But we’ll keep on pushing,” he said. 

A promise from a politician to “keep on pushing” isn’t exactly inspiring. However, there’s still a lot of concern about what Democrats might do during a lame duck session.

A lot of Democrats have hinted they are going to pass card check legislation during a lame duck session. It would be a mistake to dismiss the possibility of that happening.

The NJECPAC and our member organizations continue to support the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace in their fight against this egregious legislation, http://www.myprivateballot.com/
If passed, EFCA would strip employees of their right to a private ballot vote in union elections. Click Here To Take Action

H.R 3590 Health-Care Law Update

N.J. Rep. Pascrell: Changes likely for 'far from perfect' health care reform law

Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. said Thursday that Congress will likely have to change the sweeping health insurance overhaul enacted in March “because we didn’t get it right,” even as he slammed the insurance industry for trying to undermine some provisions. “There’ll be changes to this health care reform, some because we didn’t get it right,” Pascrell, D-Paterson, told a friendly group of small business and health reform advocates at a news conference in a Senate hearing room.

NJECPAC would like to ask The Congressman "So if it isnt perfect why did You Vote For It" but the Congresman did not meet with us when we visited his Washington Office in May even though we begain requesting an Appointment with him 3 months prior to our arrival. 

Governor Has Yet To Decide If NJ Will Join Suit Against H.R. 3590

Governor Chris Christie says he has not decided whether to sign on to a 20-state lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of The health-care law H.R.3590 signed in March by Obama.

That makes New Jersey one of seven Republican-led states that have not joined the challenge to the Law. Interest groups on both sides of the debate are lobbying the governor, but some of his advisers say he should not join the suit. Capping property taxes and managing a difficult budget have rightly been his top priorities.
