Democrats Get Rewarded for Sucking Up to Big Labor

Actually, this Politico article describes how White House insider and AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka threatens to scale back union support of the Democratic Party and set up their own super-PAC.

“We’re going to use a lot of our money to build structures that work for working people” Trumka said. “You’re going to see us give less money to build structures for others, and more of our money will be used to build our own structure.”

Obama's union backers are disappointed at the failure to pass a card-check bill, and oppose free-trade agreements with Colombia, South Korea, and Panama.
