Check, Please...CARD CHECK, THAT IS

I love the open admission that IT workers are mistreated. This is analogous to the "it would be a boon for trial lawyers" argument against the Lily Ledbetter fair pay act: the opposition grants that people would be helped by the proposed legislation; they just don't want them helped and prefer the status quo.

I also like the classic short-term, unenlightened self-interest of this argument.

1) The companies want a D majority.
2) The EFCA would likely help ensure a D majority.
Obvious conclusion: The companies support EFCA.
Reality: The companies oppose EFCA.
