Harry Reid and Obama want to stack the deck against the American worker

From The National Right To Work Committee:

Barack Obama's latest payback to Big Labor is moving quickly -- and I need your help right away.

The U.S. Senate Labor Committee just announced it will hold a kangaroo court "hearing" on Tuesday on Obama's nomination of Sharon Block to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

You may remember Sharon Block.

Block, a former staffer for longtime forced-unionism proponent Ted Kennedy, was one of Barack Obama's bogus "recess" appointees to the NLRB.

The U.S. Supreme Court unanimously held over the summer those appointments were unconstitutional.

Now the same Big Labor partisan who defied the rule of law could find herself back on the very federal agency at which she illegally participated in hundreds of decisions!

The rogue Obama NLRB has dedicated itself to rewriting American labor law every chance it gets, including;

***Forcing workers in non-Right to Work States to pay for union lobbying and political activities, via the Jeannette Geary case, where the NLRB blatantly IGNORED the Supreme Court's 1988 Beck decision;
***"Micro-organizing," which allows union militants to target and organize small units of workers if they know most employees at a workplace don't want to join a union;
***Ambush elections, which subject workers to quick-snap organizing where only Big Labor's side of the story is ever told and expose workers to many of the abuses of Card Check instant organizing;
***Forcing companies to continue automatic dues collection for Big Labor fat cats even after union contracts expire, flagrantly violating 60 years of precedent.

If the Senate confirms Block to a five-year term, undoing the damage the Obama Labor Board has already done -- and whatever union-boss power grabs they ram through in the final two years of Obama's terms -- will be even more difficult.

And I'm afraid Barack Obama and union-label Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid just might get away with it, too.

It's time to start turning up the heat on the U.S. Senate at once.

I'm particularly concerned because some weak-kneed Senate Republicans caved in to Obama and Reid last year and agreed to give Richard Griffin, another sham "recess" appointee, a different job at the NLRB.

Not only that, Harry Reid made your job as grassroots citizens even more difficult.

You see, last year, Reid pulled the so-called "nuclear option" and broke the rules to gut the filibuster.

That allows Reid to ram Barack Obama's radical nominations through the U.S. Senate with the slimmest majorities.

Reid could even delay a floor vote until a "lame duck" session after losing his pro-forced-unionism majority in November, hoping concerned citizens like you aren't paying attention.

But you and I have stopped him before from underhanded tactics like that, such as when we stopped Reid from ramming through the Police and Firefighter Monopoly Bargaining Bill in the "lame duck" session in 2010.

That's why it's vital we start turning up the pressure right away.

Sign your petition to your U.S. Senators opposing Sharon Block's nomination to the NLRB by clicking here.

The NLRB has been ground zero for Barack Obama's paybacks to Big Labor.

Obama's end-around of the Constitution was the most egregious example yet.

The Supreme Court unanimously struck that down, but what kind of message does the Senate send if it lets him get away with it?

That's why I'm counting on your action at once.

Please sign your petition opposing Sharon Block right away.

And after you do, I hope you'll chip in with a contribution of $10 or more to help your National Right to Work Committee turn up the heat.

With a Senate Labor Committee hearing on the nomination just days away, please sign your petition right away.

Sincerely,

Mark Mix

P.S. The Senate Labor Committee has scheduled a kangaroo court "hearing" on Barack Obama's nomination of Sharon Block to the National Labor Relations Board.

Sharon Block, whose sham "recess" appointment to the NLRB was unanimously held unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court, defied the rule of law by illegally participating in hundreds of decisions.

Please click here to sign your petition to your U.S. Senators urging them to oppose Block's nomination.
