The GOP's pro-union 16 

Earlier, I wrote that a number of House Republicans supported an amendment upholding an Obama administration rule making it easier for unions to organize rail and airline workers. Though the amendment failed, I've compiled a list of the 16 Republicans who sided with the unions. Not surprisingly, they tend to be from union-heavy states such as New York, New Jersey, Pennslyvania and Ohio.
