Congressman Joe "You Lie" Wilson is trying to push a bill that would turn the National Labor Relations Board into a political circus.

Under the proposed bill, the NLRB would be turned into a six-member bipartisan agency that could make it more difficult to act. Furthermore, the agency's top lawyer would have less authority. The NLRB could also face funding cuts. Congressman Wilson claims that the board favors labor unions over being an "independent" umpire.

Throughout the Obama Administration, the NLRB has made it easier for workers to organize and this legislation would severely limit the work that the board has done for working people.
