Union members know too well what it means to not have a friend of workers in the White House. The last thing working families need out of this presidential election year is more of the same.
The AFL-CIO has launched the “McCain Revealed” campaign, an effort to expose Sen. John McCain’s record and his allegiance to the failed policies of President George W. Bush.
The intent of the campaign is to inform voters that McCain is no “moderate” or “maverick,” but a Bush McClone when it comes to jobs, trade, Social Security privatization, health care and other vital working family issues.
The biggest misconception union members have about John McCain is that he is some sort of moderate….But the reality is he does not have a moderate record when it comes to Social Security. He does not have a moderate record when it
comes to trade. He does not have a moderate record when it comes to the minimum wage. He does not have a moderate record when it comes to the freedom to join unions. People need to know that and we’re going to let them know. — New Hampshire AFL-CIO President Mark MacKenzie
