Obama Set to Sue Arizona........Again?

This time, it's not Arizona exclusively but they're on the list of states that will have to prepare to be sued by the National Labor Relations Board because those states support the right to secret ballots in Union elections. In short, the Obama administration is setting the table to enforce Card check on states that prevent it in their own Constitutions. Once again, we have the Obama Justice Department looking to impose its will on states that choose to assert theirs. Other states on the list include South Carolina, South Dakota, and Utah.

Via the AP:
WASHINGTON – The National Labor Relations Board on Friday threatened to sue Arizona, South Carolina, South Dakota and Utah over constitutional amendments guaranteeing workers the right to a secret ballot in union elections.

The agency's acting general counsel, Lafe Solomon, said the amendments conflict with federal law, which gives employers the option of recognizing a union if a majority of workers sign cards that support unionizing.
The amendments, approved Nov. 2, have taken effect in South Dakota and Utah, and will do so soon in Arizona and South Carolina.

Business and anti-union groups sought the amendments, arguing that such secrecy is necessary to protect workers against union intimidation. They are concerned that Congress might enact legislation requiring employers to allow the "card check" process for forming unions instead of secret ballot elections.
Obama is resembling King George more every day. In particular, this excerpt from the Declaration of Independence:
He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
Prediction: Judges will put a hold on the amendments, thereby clearing the way for card check. Then the amendments will wallow in obscurity, never to be attended to.

Case in point: SB 1070
