Obama huddles with labor leaders and leftist radicalsTopics:
The nation is chin-deep in debt, the economy is still barely out of the toilet, jobs are still hard to come by, Obamacare and government regulations are pushing small businesses out of business ... and the nation faces running straight over a fiscal cliff. So you'd think the first thing Obama would do is sit down with business leaders, right?
After all, government jobs are paid for with taxpayer dollars, businesses provide most of the jobs that provide for the income on which most individual taxes are paid (47 percent of all tax revenues), employers and workers jointly pay payroll taxes (accounting for 33 percent of all tax revenues), and businesses themselves pay income taxes (making up 12 percent of all tax revenues).
However, what does our leftist president do instead? He cuddles up to and huddles with labor leaders and left-wing radicals:
President Obama is hosting a closed-door White House meeting Tuesday morning with labor leaders and liberal activists to discuss his stance in negotiations with House Republicans on the looming budgetary fiscal cliff.It's clear where and with whom Barack Obama places his priorities and allegiances. For those fools who though Obama will shift closer to the middle in a second term, this move clearly indicates he's going to do the exact opposite.
One day later, Mr. Obama plans to have a similar private discussion with business leaders.
Vice President Joe Biden will also attend the Tuesday's gathering, which is being billed as a discussion of "the actions we need to take to keep our economy growing and find a balanced approach to reduce our deficit," according to a White House release.
Several labor leaders plan on attending, including Mary Kay Henry of the Service Employees International Union; Lee Sanders of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees; Dennis Van Roekel of the National Education Association; and Richard Trumka, head of the AFL-CIO.
Activists who planned to attend include Neera Tanden of the Center for American Progress; John Podesta of the Center for American Progress; Bob Greenstein of the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities; Laura Burton Capps of Common Purpose Project; Max Richtman of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare; Justin Ruben of MoveOn; and Deepak Bhargava of the Center for Community Change.
And for the benefit of the clueless ... unions do not pay any income tax ... absolutely none. Not even one single dime.
