Like many other Republicans, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is very upset about the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) lawsuit against Boeing. He had harsh words for President Barack Obama on the issue, The Hill reports.

The NLRB is suing Boeing for allegedly retaliating against strikes at a unionized plant in Washington State by opening a new factory to produce the 787 Dreamliner in South Carolina.

"The federal government is now, through the NLRB, going to tell you where you can locate your plant," McConnell said on the Hugh Hewitt radio show Thursday.

"You know, a lot of these big, global businesses, their response to that might be, 'Well, I’ll locate my plant in Mexico.'"

The White House is trying to rule through coercion, he says. "This is a Chicago-style thuggish administration. In other words, 'Agree with us, or we’ll find a way to punish you.' "
