A political cartoon depicts Senate Majority Leader Scott W. Lucas at odds with President Harry S. Truman over the repeal of the Taft-Hartley Act. Although Truman was opposed to an act that limited the power of labor unions, citing that it was "dangerous," he still managed to use it to his advantage a dozen times during his presidency.
