    I mean, the R's are egregious, we know they hate Labor and so we know when the President appoints them to the NLRB he's sticking it to Labor.

    But have you even looked at the background of the D in this mess?  

    Yeah, this board will have plenty of 3-2 splits alright.  And not in Labor's favor.

    Not that it will get confirmed, the R's don't want the board to be functioning, and the Democrats will allow them to keep it from functioning.

    So much misleading information, so arrogantly asserted, all over this place, by people desperate to defend this Administration at all costs.

    It's sad, is what it is.

      but what is wrong with the Dem nominees?  You say they worked for the Chamber of Commerce or were CEOs themselves?

      But I am having trouble finding that info. Sharon Block was counsel to Ted Kennedy on the HELP committee, Griffin worked as a counsel for an engineers union, and Pearce started his own law firm. Is he the one you count as a CEO?

      One of the Republicans nominated did represent the Chamber of Commerce.

      Again, not defending anyone here, just trying to get the facts.
