Issue about a in LRB.
The national lose your right forward so called National Labor Relations Board.
Really chaps Mac.

Well disapproval of this rule Melissa on the congressional review act we have sixty days in the congress to do that they originate in the House of Representatives.
Chairman John -- of -- education and workforce committee.
Is my original cosponsor senator that -- C has filed the same resolution in the senate supported back Bob Mattson after all from Georgia Johnny asked -- and.
And we're gonna stop the us did this thought National Labor Relations Board.
You know President Obama and the in the non recess recess appointment.
Well of course this is just a nothing but let's hop to labor unions while they -- it allows them under -- ambush rule.
Two to make a small business men and women.
Have an election a union election within ten days of notify and that the union has -- that petition.
-- tradition and that's been up to thirty days and that's just absolutely -- unfair to small business men and women.
Let me -- devil's advocate for a second here it if you look at your -- from the Bureau of Labor Statistics 2011.
Salary comparison of median weekly earnings.
Union workers make an average of 938 dollars a week nonunion workers make 729.
Dollars they would say.
That he worked for the union you make more money see you should watching unionized we're just trying to unionize workers to statistic.
Give them more rights and more money.
Well of course what they don't say is it probably 300 odd dollars a month of bad.

But we're gonna stop it because we can do that -- up or down vote in the senate.
We don't need to have the -- simple majority vote.
And -- cloture of course Harry Reid just like on net neutrality -- which we we that resolution of disapproval was was up passed in the House of Representatives.
Thought it it will pass is -- it prepared reasonable level that come to to the floor -- yeah.
Don't hold your breath -- -- When you get down into the nitty gritty of this it says the chairman of the MO RB one change that he wants is to require businesses to hand over employee phone numbers.
Blake would be so mad and my employer gave my phone number to anybody wouldn't you.
You know I -- -- -- from what I elbow and one of these three new appointees is -- called on recess.
Recess appointments unconstitutional.
By the way yeah it's it's just a little bored of that AFL CIO and another is a formal labor union attorney.
