Reid thinks Founding Fathers would support NLRB against Boeing

If you haven't been following the NLRB-Boeing dustup, you can sum it up in two words; power grab.

Boeing wants to open another assembly line for its hugely popular Dreamliner aircraft. But rather than do it in Washington State, they want to go to business-friendly South Carolina. The NLRB says no, citing the mythical notion that Boeing is trying to bust the union.

When asked about the controversy, The Weekly Standard reports that Harry Reid offered this:

Reid said the NLRB "acts as a check on employers and employees alike" and is consistent with the "spirit of checks and balances" established by the Founding Fathers.
Reid's defense comes as Republicans have gone on the attack against the NLRB over a complaint issued earlier this year that faulted Boeing for opening a new factory for its Dreamliner 787 fleet in South Carolina.

The NLRB said Boeing had retaliated against striking workers in Washington state by building the new production plant in South Carolina, a "right to work" state.

The decision enraged business groups and Republicans, who say South Carolina could lose jobs because of the NLRB action.

Uh huh. The founding fathers were all about restricting commerce and impeding economic growth. Sure.

I'm sure the Founding Fathers would agree with Reid. The only problem is - which ones?

Washington, Jefferson, and Adams or Marx, Lenin, and Trotsky?
