Corrupt Senators give bill name opposite to its effect

There's a bill pending in both houses of congress that apparently would

a) abolish the use of the secret ballot when employees voted on whether to unionize;
b) prevent the National Labor Relations Board from supervising elections for the purpose of deciding whether to unionize.

Given these effects, what do you suppose the group of 40-some Democrat co-sponsors in the Senate decided to name this piece of crap? That's right:

The Employee Free Choice Act

I know, this sounds like tinfoil-hat stuff: One simply cannot believe that any remotely-ethical person could name a bill something so diametrically opposite to its true effect. But this is *congress* we're talking about, so basically nothing outrageous is off limits.

You gotta read the draft text to believe it. Pay particular attention to this section.
