Lanny Davis tries to convince 1600 host Ed Schultz that he’s a "pro-labor" Democrat as he flacks on MSNBC for his corporate masters: Starbucks, Whole Foods, and CostCo. Note that Lanny refers, repeatedly, to Employee Free Choice Act as "card-check" which is The Owners preferred name. No pro-worker Democrat calls EFCA by that name; we call it EFCA or "majority sign-up."
These huge retailers call their initiative The Level Playing Field, but it’s anything but that. Lanny Davis thinks President Obama will back his masters’ Third Way on Employee Free Choice, but it strips away any advantage for workers and their unions.
Do you buy what Lanny Davis has for sale? Do you think Barack Obama will buy it?
Update: dakine01 had an excellent diary yesterday, with much more detail, about The Owners’ Proposal
