Sanity Injection

Injecting a dose of sanity into your day’s news and current events.

We need to find out who’s naughty and nice.

The Wall Street Journal warns that President-elect Obama’s Labor Secretary, Hilda Solis, is going to be under pressure to weaken the government’s oversight of labor unions (and indeed seems to support doing so):

Isn’t it ironic that the only time Big Labor supports smaller government is when it’s the part of government that keeps an eye on them?

There simply is no possible justification for preventing workers from voting by secret ballot on unionization initiatives. And it is union members themselves who benefit most from the government’s efforts to make sure unions are transparent about how their dues are being spent. Reporting requirements for unions are miniscule compared to what non-profits and corporations must provide, so weakening them doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. What Big Labor is hoping is that they can accomplish these changes very quietly without attracting much in the way of public notice. Let’s see whether the mainstream media takes their reporting responsibility as seriously as they like to claim, or whether there’s a double standard in their vigor when it comes to exposing sneakiness on the Left.
