Labor's relationship to the Dems

In the midst of a major internal labor dispute, unions are still playing hardball with Democrats concerning the current CAFTA debate. David Sirota comments on the ideology at issue: "Think of it this way - conservative groups aren't in the business of giving campaign cash to Republicans who sell them out, and that's part of the reason how the GOP has managed to hone its ideology and create unity within its party. Similarly, labor shouldn't be in the business of giving away workers' hard-earned money to Democrats who stiff those workers in Congress." (Sirotablog)
