Chuck Schumer is having a tough time with a razor-thin Senate majority.
Democrats are in disarray as the Biden regime collapses.
And he just got some jaw-dropping news from the last place he ever expected.
The election of Joe Biden gave what Big Labor thought was their biggest opening in years to expand their power.
Biden ran as the most pro-union president ever.
The Democrat majority in Congress is chock full of Big Labor-backed radicals.
The crown jewel of Big Labor’s agenda is the PRO Act which is the most radical union power grab since the 1930s.
The bill would end all state Right-to-Work laws, eliminate secret ballot union elections along with a host of other Big Labor power grabs.
The PRO Act passed the U.S. House and is collecting dust in a Senate subcommittee.
With the filibuster holding up action on the bill, Big Labor is furious.
AFL-CIO president Liz Schuler is now threatening so-called “moderate” Democrat senators who support the filibuster.
Schuler said that Democrats who support keeping the filibuster will face “political consequences.”
The consequences could range from withholding support from future political campaigns to backing primary challengers.
This is devastating news for Schumer who holds the slimmest of margins in the Senate with a 50/50 split.
Big Labor’s political machine has poured millions of dollars into the campaign coffers of Senate Democrats for decades and provided them with campaign “volunteers.”
Headed into a 2022 election cycle that’s expected to be good for Republicans, Schumer can’t afford for vulnerable Democrat Senators to lose Big Labor’s support.
So far, Democrat Senators Joe Manchin (WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (AZ) have resisted pressure from the far left to abolish the filibuster.
If they continue to do so, Big Labor could pin the blame on Chuck Schumer himself.
Some Leftists have floated the idea of pushing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to primary challenge Schumer.
That would make a seismic wave in the Democrat Party.
Whether the so-called moderate Senate Democrats can withstand the pressure from Big Labor and other radical leftists to maintain the filibuster will determine the fate of the PRO Act, Green New Deal and other socialist legislation.
