An unrestrained NLRB is free to attack the economy

A new report from House Oversight and Reform Comittee Chairman Darrell Issa accuses the National Labor Relations Board of killing jobs and smothering economic growth. And that was while the radicalized board's dissenting voice was still serving.

SHOT: Report says NLRB lawsuit threatened SC jobs, created uncertainty - "The Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, headed by Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa of California, released a report on the National Labor Relations Board Tuesday. … According to the report a review of the NLRB's complaint against Boeing showed that they demonstrated an 'extreme lack of impartiality as they pursued the case.'" ("Report says NLRB lawsuit threatened SC jobs, created uncertainty," WCBD-TV, 12/18/12)

CHASER: NLRB finally achieves solidarity - "Like much of the rest of Washington, the supposedly independent National Labor Relations Board has been the scene of bare-knuckled partisan conflict for years now. But the White House may have finally found a way to resolve that: The new board will have no Republicans at all. With no fanfare, Brian Hayes, the sole remaining Republican serving on it, stepped down Sunday as his term expired. That leaves just three people on the five-member board, which enforces the National Labor Relations Act. Traditionally, the White House appoints three seats and allows the minority party to get two. Right now, all three members are Democrats appointed by President Obama." ("NLRB finally achieves solidarity," Sean Higgins, Washington Examiner, 12/18/12)
