Issa for the Win: The NLRB Inquiry Will Continue

Excellent.

Last week, we caught wind that the unionized machinists and Boeing had settled upon an arrangement, and now it's official that the National Labor Relations Board is finally dropping their ludicrous farce of a lawsuit against Boeing--which actually disappointed me quite a bit. The union's complaint, in this case, was an absolutely vulgar display of the despicable level of disruptive, costly, and perfidious power that Big Labor has been allowed to acquire in this country, and the NLRB is just another of their political arms helping to entrench Big Labor's interests in the federal bureaucracy. I was looking forward to watching the NLRB get schooled by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee's inquiry, and I thought that the NLRB dropping the lawsuit might mean that the Oversight Committee's investigation would fizzle. But, lo and behold, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) is coming through for the American people yet again, reports The Hill:

Issa, who is chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, had issued subpoenas to the labor relations board for documents related to its case against Boeing, which he argued was political. ...

Issa said Friday that the decision was "a victory" for American manufacturers, workers and the cause of job creation. ...

"NLRB’s decision to end its action against Boeing does not end the Oversight Committee’s investigation into the agency," he said. "NLRB’s record of rogue action and lack of transparency with the public and Congress in this case--and in others--has raised serious questions that remain unanswered."

The NLRB has resisted compliance with Issa's subpoenas, ostensibly because the case was in the middle of judicial review, but now that the suit is over, the Oversight Committee is expecting full compliance with their requests and will ask the NLRB to hand over their documents in a timely manner, if you please.

Compared to the incompetence (or, perhaps, something much worse than incompetence...) we've seen of late from the likes of DOE Secretary Steven Chu and AG Eric Holder, it's a comfort to know that people like Rep. Issa still have leadership positions in our national government. Watching Issa investigate is like watching a virtuoso play his violin--it's some pretty masterful stuff.
