ACCE Webmaster on Friday, May 15, 2009 at 8:21:00 pm

President Obama brought up the Card Check issue at at town hall meeting in New Mexico this week.  His comments echo reports coming from Washington DC over the past few weeks; namely that Card Check supports currently lack votes in the Senate, but that a compromise is in the works.

Here is an excerpt from Bloomberg.com:

“There may be areas of compromise to get this bill done,†Obama said today at a town hall meeting in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, outside Albuquerque. “That’s what we’re working on.â€

Right now, he said, “there aren’t enough votes in the Senate to get it passed.â€

In his remarks, President Obama voiced his support for the Employee Free Choice Act.
