The campaign on EFCA will be fierce. Gaining 60 votes won't be easy. The business community will go all out, claiming that strong unions will ruin America, trample workers' freedoms, drive jobs abroad.

This is a fight that citizens across the country should join. It will be a critical building block of the new economy that we must construct from the ashes of the old.
