Democratic Leader Feels Anti-Trade Union Onslaught
It’s a well-known fact that unions are enraged by Democrats who are supporting President Obama’s trade agenda. But until now, Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has been generally able to stay above the fray. That’s all changed now.
In Pelosi’s liberal sanctuary of San Francisco, more than a dozen liberal groups will rally outside her district office to protest the trade bills in Congress. A few of the groups participating in the rally are CREDO Action, MoveOn.org, Democracy for America, and Sierra Club.
Pelosi has steered clear of making her positions on TPA and TPP public so far, and now liberal activists are starting to hold her accountable. Looks like she is caught in a lose-lose situation: betray her president or her liberal special interest groups.
