Card Check Update: As Support Weakens in Senate, Dems Scramble for Half a Loaf

The Hill reported yesterday that Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) continues to express great skepticism about the card check bill and still refuses to be a co-sponsor, an article of faith for virtually all of her Democrat colleagues. Today, The Hill reports that Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR) -- another of the tiny band of Democrat non-sponsors -- is looking for a compromise as well, and says he will approach Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA) about it. We've said before that a bad idea in Washington ought not lead to a compromise that results in half of a bad idea.

The biggest issue facing the country right now is the economy and the Senate should be about the business of finding ways to fix it without saddling us all with crushing debt for the rest of our lives. Much as the unions want to tie card check to the economy, the plain fact is that it has nothing to do with it. This is about democracy and sadly the unions are in the anti-democracy camp along with their many allies -- all Democrats -- in the House and Senate. Up until now, anti-democracy has not been a place most politicians have wanted to be. Ah, the things they'll do for money.

Sens. Pryor, Feinstein, Specter and any others looking to have it both ways would be well-advised to spend what little time they have on the real issues facing America and not on currying favor with the anti-democracy crowd.
