Ambush Election Prevention 30.11.2011 American Spectator
Imagine voting in a presidential election where one candidate can campaign for a year and the other is only told he is running a week before Election Day. As absurd as that sounds, that is precisely the choice that President Obama's National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is trying to impose on American workers. The NLRB is the supposedly neutral federal agency charged with judging private sector labor law cases and interpreting labor statutes. However, under Obama, it has gone far beyond that mission, to propose sweeping rule changes favorable to unions. Some members of Congress are focused on this problem and are trying to do something about it. On Wednesday, the House of Representatives is set to vote on the Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act (H.R. 3094). The bill, introduced by House Education and the Workforce Committee Chairman John Kline (R-Minn.), would prevent these "ambush" elections by requiring all union representation elections to occur no less than 35 days following a union's ...

Networks Trumpet Barney Frank’s Legacy, Ignore Role in Housing Crisis 29.11.2011 NewsBusters
"The first line in Barney Frank"s political epitaph," The Weekly Standard "s Stephen Hayes predicted on Monday"s FNC Special Report upon news the longtime liberal Democratic Congressman won"t seek re-election, will "be the housing crisis." But that isn"t what those who decide the first draft of history considered relevant. ABC, CBS and NBC didn"t mention Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac as they instead touted him as "one of the most familiar, powerful and colorful characters on Capitol Hill" (ABC), as "the Congressman who co-authored the overhaul of financial regulations after the crash" (CBS) and all noted his sexual orientation. NBC"s Brian Williams: "Among his legacies – besides his legendary sharp tongue – he was the first Member of Congress to publically acknowledge he was gay back in 1987." Only Williams described him as a liberal. From ABC"s World News , November ...

Barney's Bubble 29.11.2011 American Spectator
Barney Frank decided that introducing himself to a new set of constituents and asking for their votes was too high a price to continue wielding power. Thus with his congressional district redrawn, the Massachusetts Democrat will not seek reelection to Congress next year. Holding a House seat for three decades is one thing. Being accountable to the voters is another. "If I were to run again I would be engaged full-fledged in a campaign, which is appropriate," Frank said, but clearly not, in his view, desirable. Accountability hasn't always been Frank's strong suit. In his retirement press conference at Newton's city hall, the congressman expressed no regrets for his handling of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac during his past decade of service on the House Financial Services Committee, both as chairman and ranking member. Frank was a cheerleader for policies that helped inflate the housing bubble that burst painfully in the 2008 financial crisis. Like many politicians, he encouraged lenders to ...
