Poor Richard: Trumka stomps foot over invalidation of NLRB recess appointments
It’s hard out there for a thug. AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka is beside himself over the news that the DC Circuit’s U.S. Court of Appeals ruled Obama’s three recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board to be invalid. The Senate wasn’t actually in recess when the appointments were made.
Fully expect radical DC Circuit decision to be reversed, and that other courts will uphold the President’s recess appointment authority

If the court’s ruling stands, many more board appointments could be in jeopardy. Poor Richard. How could things possibly get any worse?
And union membership is at an all time low, happy Friday @richardtrumka!
