Despite being a politician all his life, and never having worked in a blue-collar job, President Joe Biden declared, "I'm a union man," when he announced his presidential campaign at a Teamsters union hall in Pittsburgh in April 2019.
What our president really loves is big government and political power, and there is no more reliable money trough for Democrats than unions.
According to OpenSecrets, which tracks political spending, Biden's campaign received $27.5 million in contributions from unions, compared with $360,000 from unions that went to former President Donald Trump's campaign.
So, it is no surprise that the president and his party are now unfurling legislation aimed at protecting unions. It's called the PRO Act -- Protecting the Right to Organize.
The bill passed in the House, but with little prospect of it making it on its own in the evenly split Senate, Senate Democrats have buried it in the budget reconciliation bill that can pass with a simple majority and is not subject to filibuster.
