    This compromise would work only if the President were willing to nominate two Democratic nominees other than the two "recess" appointees whose appointments have been held invalid.

  • JD

    A short term fix perpetuating the very process derided for its irrelevancy in modern times. Holding fast will ultimately force reexamination and recrafting labor law.

  • KH

    The most well reasoned and rational position I've seen relating to this issue. Unfortunately, the fact that it is reasonable and thought out is also probably the reason it could not be moved forward. As you point out, the NLRB governance process is now all about leverage. Your idea would cause something unthinkable - compromise and empathy.
