South Carolina 1st District Rep. Tim Scott’s bill to restrict the actions of the National Labor Relations Board passed the U.S. House but faces a stiffer challenge in the Senate.
Sen. Lindsey Graham says, “I have introduced the legislation in the Senate and will continue to press Harry Reid to bring it up for a vote.”
In a press conference held on Capitol Hill yesterday, Graham admonished Senate Majority Leader Reid:
“Isn’t this a good use of the most deliberative body in the history of the world? To be talking about whether or not an unelected bureaucracy should have the power to shut down a plant that was invested by a billion dollars a year, after they made the investment? If that’s not worth our time, if that’s not important, what the hell would be? So we’re going to talk about this and we’re going to try to vote. And I’d like to do it in a bipartisan fashion, because I can tell you in South Carolina, Republicans and Democrats see this the same,” said Graham.
