Democrats Introduce Legislation to Undo SCOTUS Ruling, Here’s What it Says

Published

on

Democratic lawmakers are striking back against a Supreme Court ruling that would allow folks to not be forced to unionize or pay union fees without their express permission and willingness to join, as this could potentially suck millions of dollars in donations from leftist candidates and result in a loss of votes during election time.

Liberals in Congress are introducing a bill that will make it harder for workers in the public sector to opt out of paying union dues, effectively undermining the ruling the Supreme Court just handed down.

It’s amazing how quickly the Democrats leap into action when someone threatens their power and the size of their bank account.

The legislation would strengthen labor contracts that require workers, including non-union ones, to continue making payments.

The court’s 5-4 ruling in Janus v. American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees said it violated public-sector workers’ First Amendment rights to require them to pay their workplace’s union regular fees — common requirement in union contracts, dubbed a “security clause” — unless the employee “affirmatively consents to pay.”

So, if the employee ever signed anything, even unknowingly, that approved a deduction, the union can cite that to argue that the worker cannot exercise his rights under Janus.

The legislation is authored by Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, and Rep. Matt Cartwright, D-Pa., and co-sponsored by 31 Senate and 19 House Democrats, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

The text of the legislation was not available, but in a joint statement Thursday, the lawmakers said the legislation would require that all public employers “recognize the employees’ labor organization … and to commit any agreements to writing in a contract or memorandum of understanding.”

The Janus ruling was a potentially major blow to public-sector unions, which rely heavily on funds derived through safety clauses. The unions argue they are owed the money because collective bargaining benefits all workers. Many of those workers would rather not pay, however. An internal survey by AFSCME, which has 1.6 million members, found that only a third of them would voluntarily pay dues, and half of its membership couldn’t be counted upon to do that, according to a 2015 Bloomberg report. Fifteen percent would opt out of paying dues entirely.

Democrats have argued that the court case was an attack on workers because it would result in weaker unions. “The Supreme Court’s decision in Janus is just the latest blow in a decades-long attack on unions and their ability to lift American families into the middle class … We need to pass the Public Service Freedom to Negotiate Act to protect and strengthen the fundamental the ability of unions to organize and collectively bargain for fair wages and working conditions that are critical to public-sector employees,” Hirono said.

The left is attempting to once again cover their greed and lust for power with a false altruism, as it’s quite clear that if they really cared for workers, they’d find ways to remove unnecessary regulations that are choking the life out of the companies they work for. This would enable them to thrive economically and provide better for their families.

No, this has nothing to do with workers and everything to do with the Democratic Party being terrified they will lose folks loyal to the party. It’s an awful, awful racket and yet it continues on today.

Let’s hope the ruling continues to be upheld.

Proud American, right here.

He’s right. For once, Joe Biden is right. America is “morally deprived,” he just didn’t mention the people responsible for the decline. Because of far-left policies, this great nation allows women to get away with murder; allows lawbreakers and criminals to become citizens; and hands out “free” money to those unwilling to work. The only problem with Biden’s sentence is that he didn’t use the words “Democrats are” before “morally derived.” Biden blabbered, “I believe we are in a battle for the soul of this nation. And the simple truth is our soul be troubled as long as systemic racism is allowed to persist. We can’t eliminate ‘zimply’ overnight. We can’t ‘eliminateverthing.’ But it’s corrosive, it’s destructive and it’s costly. It costs every American. Not just who felt the sting of racial injustice. We’re not just less of a – We’re not just a nation of morally deprived because of systemic racism. We’re also less prosperous. We’re less successful. We’re less secure.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=33&v=OM6qa7WgFoU&feature=emb_title From Fox News: Biden revealed the federal government will purchase an additional 100 million doses of vaccine each from Pfizer and Moderna as part of its effort to ramp up the unprecedented vaccination drive. Even with the acquisition of more vaccine supplies, Biden warned that distribution will take time and other precautions, such as wearing masks, should remain a priority for Americans. “The brutal truth is, it’s going to take months before we can the majority of Americans vaccinated – months,” Biden said. “In the next few months, masks, not vaccines, are the best defense against COVID-19. Experts say that wearing masks from now just until April would save 50,000 lives that otherwise would pass away if we don’t wear these masks.” Sound off on Joe in the comments section…

Biden: America ‘Has Never Fully Lived Up to the Founding Principles of This Nation’

President Goofy said some pretty silly things about America and the Trump Administration on Tuesday afternoon. Better get used to hearing that. Unfortunately, whether we like it or not – or whether the country can hang on long enough – we’re stuck with Joe and Kamala. These people and their supporters loathe America. It couldn’t be clearer. WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1354147571552440320 https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1354149480367595521 Reaction from Right Scoop: Americans have not bought into a zero sum game and that’s not how America operates. But this is the bizarrely skewed version of America that Democrats want Americans to believe is happening. Which is why they always drag out this tired and very dishonest propaganda. One of the things that makes America great is that everyone in this country has the opportunity to succeed as long as government stays out of the way. It doesn’t matter if someone grows up in poverty or with a silver spoon in their mouth. Just look at Ben Carson as a great example! Joe is attempting to make it clear that he will be the most “progressive” president this country has ever seen. Not good. Not good at all.
