Labor To Fight Back On Solis

For organized labor, enough's enough. The nomination of Hilda Solis is languishing in the Senate, with Republican protesting Solis's past association with labor groups and Democrats wondering about the tax problems her husband recently solved. Tomorrow, the AFL-CIO fights back. "Enough is enough," a spokesman said tonight  Watch Friday for labor, women's groups and Hispanic groups to open fire against Republicans. "We worked with [Republicans] in good faith. Solis has answered all their questions but they continues to oppose her for partisan ideological reasons."  No word on labor is satisfied with the level of White House pressure on Congress to get Solis approved.
