EFCA Political Note

Marc Ambinder of Atlantic has a current note on the state of opposition to the Employee Free Choice Act, 60 Might Have Mattered. Quoting an unidentified Republican Senator:

“We will do everything we possibly can to get every Republican on board,” the senator said.”We’re even working on Arlen,” the senator said, referring to Pennsylvania’s Sen. Specter, a reliable ally of labor unions. A few Democrats, the senator said, will be targeted.

It will be interesting indeed if they can get Specter on board.

The article headline is of course a reference to the 60 votes that it takes to break a filibuster in the Senate.

My current thought, some version of EFCA passes, but not the current one and probably not as soon as first feared. That and $3 will get you some sort of latte at Starbucks.
