Economic Freedom Alliance Targets EFCA

-By Warner Todd Huston

A rather new group called the Economic Freedom Alliance ( is now taking on the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) by erecting billboards to target five key Democrat congressmen in hopes of getting their constituents to urge them to drop support of the EFCA.

In one section of Illinois, for instance, the billboards say simply “” Bill Foster is a Democratic Representative from south west of Chicago who now holds the seat that Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert once occupied.

Other Democrats that the billboards are targeting elsewhere in the country are Democrat Representatives Debbie Halvorson (Ill.) and Ike Skelton (Missouri), as well as Democratic Senators Evan Bayh (Indiana) and Claire McCaskill (Missouri).

The EFA has posted a nicely summed up fact sheet about what the EFCA is and what it does and it’s worth a bookmark.

The organization is chaired by Ron Gidwitz a conservative businessman in Illinois. Gidwitz ran as a Republican for governor in 2006, but did not get the nomination.
