Trumka thinks that he is riding the top of a wave now but he, his cronies and all the unions are going to be thrown under the bus if BO wins the election. They're only being used until BO can reach the next step of his agenda!

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka is looking forward to some "flexibility" in a second Obama term should the president win tomorrow. Trumka told the Atlantic an Obama re-election will bring back card check, or in other words, the elimination of a secret ballot for union members.

"[...] You'll see it," he says. "That's within the next term." How is that possible, without a Democratic House of Representatives or 60 votes in the Senate? Trumka smiles. His eyes twinkle.

"There's another election between now and then," he says. And the AFL-CIO isn't going anywhere.
