Why I Am No Longer A Democrat, Reason #2

(Part of an ongoing series.)

Democrats no longer support workers' right to unionize:

Ben Nelson to Join Filibuster of Craig Becker
By: Michael Whitney Monday February 8, 2010 7:50 pm

Ben Nelson just issued a statement saying he’ll vote no on cloture for Craig Becker tomorrow, joining the Republican filibuster. “Mr. Becker’s previous statements strongly indicate that he would take an aggressive personal agenda to the NLRB, and that he would pursue a personal agenda there, rather than that of the Administration,” said Senator Nelson. ...
Thank you, Ben Nelson, the very model of a Democrat in name only. This will make the cloture vote a squeaker. If you do not proactively support Labor's right to organize, you shouldn't be taking money from the Democratic Party. And if you're taking that money, I can assure you I will not be giving that money.


  1. I sure am glad it wasn't any of my money in that $500,000 he took from the DNC in December. You have to be really stupid (or bought) not to support what unions have brought to this country over the years.

  2. Fallenmonk, I've begun to wonder if anything is sacred to the Democratic Party anymore. A woman's right to choose? I'd have thought so until so many D's were willing to toss women under the bus with the Stupak Amendment, giving away their fundamental rights in exchange for some political concession they wanted. Women's rights; labor rights... what's next? Whatever is next, they won't do it with my money.
