'Feinstein, Specter Compromises Pave the Way for Passage of Employee Free Choice Act'

Here's a worrisome story from Jane Hamsher at the Huffington Post by the above title. It is worrisome because of its credibility. Here are the opening two paragraphs:

"New compromise measures supported by Diane Feinstein and Arlen Specter may pave the way for the passage of the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA).

With 900,000 union members in the state of Pennsylvania, the Arlen Specter firewall appears to be crumbling. He knows he can't win a Democratic primary in Pennsylvania without labor, and they have made it clear that their support is contingent on his vote on Employee Free Choice."

The WaPo lead editorial today scolds the anti-EFCA forces for not leaving room for compromise, but it just may be that compromise here is a bad thing. If people want labor law reform, then we should have that conversation, with all options on the table - and not do it through a power play, because the unions think they have the votes.
