This morning the White House announced that the following noble protectors of American workers endorsed the NAFTA-style Korea Free Trade agreement:
US Chamber of Commerce CEO Tom Donohue; President of the National Association of Manufacturers John Engler; Citigroup CEO Vikram Pandit; JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon; Amway CEO and top Republican funder Dick DeVos; Big Bank lobby group Financial Services Roundtable President Steve Bartlett; and more. [Also, the MPAA]
That’s an impressive array of people who are dedicated to protecting the ultra-rich and not giving a damn about real working Americans or American jobs. How could the Obama White House top that?
Here’s the second round of endorsements from the White House for NAFTA-style Korea Free Trade; mind you the White House is actually bragging about these names:
* Mitch McConnell
It’s like a party for the Corporate Axis of Evil, and Obama’s throwing a kegger.
How's that for Change We Can Believe In?
The CEO's of Walmart, Citigroup, Amway, AT&T, JP Morgan Chase, big bank lobbyists, the chamber of commerce and Big Pharma backing an Obama trade agreement that will sell the American worker out and help enrich corporate coffers.
And let's remember, it has ALREADY been the most profitable quarter for American corporations EVER while the unemployment rate has gone up to 9.8% and long-term unemployment is even WORSE.
Heckuva job, Barack!
Still selling the American worker down the river even after corporate shill Rahm "F#$% The UAW!" Emanuel has left the building.
I guess we know what Obama really values.
