From Sunday's New York Daily News (October 1, 2012):

"In case you missed it over the weekend, the Obama administration's Friday afternoon document drop was a memo from the Department of Labor telling defense contractors not to provide legally-required notice to thousands of employees that they are about to be laid off, if automatic spending cuts agreed to by the President and the Congress take effect.

Translation: President Obama wants to prevent thousands of employees, especially in swing-state Virginia, from being told that they are going to be laid off due to Department of Defense funding cuts. Because of the timing of the cuts, those notices would have been sent to employees just prior to the election in November. The man who signed those funding cuts into law would like to avoid that."

So Team Obama is actually asking defense contractors NOT to abide by the law requiring employers to give their workers adequate notice before they are laid-off! AND, Obama is actually willing to pay the fines, legal fees, etc. of these contractors (b/c they would be fined and sued if they violated the law).

This is the most shameless, disgraceful and sleazy move ever by a politician. And this is the man who promised us hope and change? Promised us that he'd "change the way things work in Washington"?

How can anyone vote for a man willing to break the law and ask others to do so until after the election?

By the way, Obama dropped the news just as the weekend was about to start to escape people's attention but if you Google you'll see that this is true....
