As most are aware, the dreaded Employee Free Anti-Choice Act or Card Check was introduced in the House and Senate today. The timing has been uncertain for a while, but everyone knew it was coming. Luckily, FreedomWorks is prepared.
This news release claims that 74 percent of voters oppose the Employee Free Choice Act that may see a vote as early as this week in the House.
