Are the Democrats Through with Tough Votes?

In January, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka boldly predicted that card check — the so-called Employee Free Choice Act — would pass in the first quarter of 2010. Now we’re hearing that there won’t be any more tough votes, at least in the House, ahead of the midterm elections.

That would make sense politically, especially since a Supreme Court confirmation still lies ahead. But this is the same Democratic leadership that made dozens of vulnerable members walk the plank on health care and sacrificed at least one Senate candidate in the process. I’d still expect at least some kind of push on amnesty and cap and trade — both issues where Lindsey Graham hopes to give the Democrats bipartisan cover — before the elections.
