Unions Kill EFCA

Efca Jeff posted yesterday on a poll by the AFL-CIO indicating that 49% of union households in Massachusetts voted for Republican Scott Brown in the state's senate race.  Politico, citing the same poll, points out that by helping to elect a Republican and thereby depriving the Democrats of a filibuster-proof majority, Massachusetts union members likely have put the "last nail in the coffin" that is burying EFCA.  About the best the Democrats can hope for on the EFCA front now is a watered-down compromise bill -- perhaps something that just increases the penalties for unfair labor practices.

Hat tip: Dennis Nolan.
