Obama Restates Employee Free Choice Act Support

Barack Obama's transition team reiterated the president-elect's strong support for the Employee Free Choice Act late yesterday, the Huffington Post reports.

Asked if Obama's support for the Employee Free Choice Act remained as strong as his public proclamations suggested on the campaign trail, transition spokesman Dan Pfeiffer responded, succinctly, "Yes."

The reaffirmation may not seem like a political breakthrough on its surface. But in the current political climate, in which the Obama team has steadfastly refused to comment on various legislative priorities, it does signal that the President-elect is not shying away from progressive pledges made during his campaign.

Barack Obama helped lead the fight for the Employee Free Choice Act in the Senate, and he's promised to sign the bill as President. Check out this video showing his leadership on the issue and then sign our petition to join Barack Obama in supporting the Employee Free Choice Act.
