Specter to Oppose 'Card Check'

US Senator Arlen Specter has decided to vote against the Employee Free Choice Act, commonly referred to as the Card Check bill.

Specter was the only Republican to support the bill two years ago. Unions were counting on him as the crucial 60th vote needed to overcome an expected GOP filibuster of the measure when it's taken up later this summer.
