  •  Assume EFCA itself is dead (4+ / 0-)

    And it's going to be some form of EFCA-lite compromise he helps pass, with different protections for labor organizing that'll be some good, some bad.  Does labor accept half-a-loaf?

    •  Probably. (3+ / 0-)

      I think that is exactly what will happen.

      Labor may not be overjoyed, but with stronger laws and Solis enforcing them in a real DOL, I think most will accept it. Chaging the legal playing field and with a President who actively supports unionization should help grow unions.

      That likely is the way it will play out.  Nelson, Lincoln and a few other Dems are weak on EFCA anyway, so Spector is not the one vote that makes a difference.  

      If he can help create the "compromise," he probably gets labor's support.  And if he gets that, he gets nominated and reelected.


      They tortured people to get false confessions to fraudulently justify our invading Iraq.
