"I owe these unions."
President Barack Obama couldn't have stated it any more clearly.
And after spending an estimated BILLION dollars to re-elect Barack Obama and maintain control of the U.S. Senate, the union bosses couldn't agree more.
They're wasting no time demanding PAYBACK.
Top AFL-CIO union boss Richard Trumka has already made clear that he expects Big Labor's Card Check Forced Unionism Bill to be a top priority in Obama's second term.
Not only that, Trumka threatened to use his forced-dues political warchest to oust any member of Congress in 2014 who stands in his way.
That's why it's vital you sign the petiton below putting yourself squarely on record OPPOSED to the union bosses' Card Check Forced Unionism Bill -- and the rest of Big Labor's agenda -- IMMEDIATELY.
Since Barack Obama doesn't have to face the voters again for re-election, the union bosses understand this may be their last -- and best -- opportunity to make Card Check Forced Unionism the law of the land.
That's why it's vital you act today!
As you know, if "Card Check" passes, workers would no longer be able to vote for or against union boss "representation" in a secret ballot election.
Instead, the union bosses would intimidate workers one-on-one -- or three-on-one -- into signing so-called "union authorization cards."
And, of course, Big Labor has yet another ticking time bomb hidden in the "Card Check" legislation.
If the union bosses can drag out negotiations with an employer past 90 days by making outrageous demands, Obama Administration bureaucrats will have the power to use this so-called "problem" as an excuse to write a new labor contract and force its terms and conditions of employment upon those workers.
So you see, not only does Big Labor want to strip workers of the right to a secret ballot but also of the right to vote on their own contracts as well!
Can you imagine the kind of damage that would do to our already-fragile economy?
I know I can.
In fact, some folks ask me from time to time, "Senator, how could the President and Congress even consider a bill like 'Card Check' with the economy the way it is?"
What I tell them may be hard to stomach, but it's the truth.
If "Card Check" passes, it would mean billions more dollars for the union bosses' coffers.
Billions more that will be spent on politics.
We're talking permanent political power.
I hate to say it, but that's why the union bosses, Barack Obama and Harry Reid aren't going to let up one bit.
And with too many Republicans scared that standing on any principle will bring another attack in the media, I'm very concerned that what may happen.
That's why it's important you sign the petition to oppose Card Check Forced Unionism IMMEDIATELY.
Should "Card Check" pass, this dangerous power grab would:
That's why I'm counting on your help IMMEDIATELY.*** Force millions of additional working Americans to pay union dues under the threat of losing their jobs, filling Big Labor coffers with hundreds of millions of forced-dues dollars;*** Dramatically increase the wasteful work rules, hate-the-boss propaganda, slowdowns and bitter strikes that shut down businesses and destroy jobs, ensuring that even more plants are closed and more jobs are shipped overseas or lost forever;*** Enable Big Labor to pump even more campaign cash into the coffers of its radical, tax and spend politicians who, in turn, will look for even greater ways to increase the union bosses' forced-dues empire.
After failing to pass most of Big Labor's agenda -- including "Card Check" -- during his first term, President Obama is anxious to payback his Big Labor benefactors.
As he told the former Russian President, "I'll have more flexibility after the election.
And you can be sure the union bosses are going to double-down in their efforts to make sure "Card Check" happens during Obama's second term.
So we can't wait. We have to mobilize NOW.
The good news is, the National Right to Work Committee has developed a massive plan to stop the Card Check Forced Unionism Bill dead in its tracks.
Grassroots mail. Phone calls. Newspaper, radio and TV ads.
But it's all VERY expensive -- especially since everything is "last minute."
That's why it's vital you act TODAY!
And that's why, in addition to your signed petition, I hope you'll agree to make a generous contribution to help stop the Card Check Forced Unionism Bill.
After signing your petition, please make a generous contribution of of $500, $250, $100 or $35.
This is not a battle you and I can afford to lose.
I'm convinced that with the Committee's plan to mobilize Americans against the Card Check Forced Unionism Bill, you and I can stop this bill -- and the rest of Big Labor's agenda -- dead in its tracks.
But we don't have much time.
Please sign this petition and make a generous contribution of $500, $250, $100 or $35 -- or whatever you can -- to help defeat Big Labor's Card Check Forced Unionism Bill.
It's vital you act TODAY!
Rand Paul, M.D.
P.S. At a press conference immediately following the 2012 elections, AFL-CIO union boss Richard Trumka told reporters he expected Card Check Forced Unionism to be a top priority of Barack Obama's second term.

Please sign this petition demanding your Congressman and Senators OPPOSE Big Labor's Card Check Forced Unionism Bill before it's too late.
