You all were warned of what this communist would do.
And picketing will do NO good.

He is going to close down all the factories around here and push for junk from over seas.

Sign the Petition
Members of Congress: Iím angry about over regulation and bureaucracy thatís killing our economy.

Our job growth is dismal. Our manufacturing and economic base is stagnant. And America is becoming more dependent on foreign sources of natural resourcesó a fact thatís leading to our employment and economic troubles.

But the problem is not Americaís reserves of natural resources. America has vast supplies of oil, gas, coal, and minerals. The problem is that the Obama Administrationís EPA has become the number-one job killer in the country by crippling resource development at every turn.

The rogue EPA has been slapped down by the courts no less than SIX times for massively overstepping its authority in the last few months. But undeterred, the EPA continues to usurp massive control and expand its authority well beyond the powers granted to it by YOU in Congress.

The latest example is EPAís efforts in Alaska to kill the proposed Pebble mine. Pebble is potentially the largest mineral deposit ever discovered in the U.S. and would pump $5 to $10 BILLION into American companies while providing crucial mineral resources needed for American manufacturing and national security. The precedent set at Pebble will then be used throughout the country Ė threatening billions in American investments and THOUSANDS of jobs every year.

The future of American jobs and the economy is at stake. Please take every step possible to reign in the EPA before itís too late.

I am surprised that Obama didn't step in and buy it for the Union Doofs with taxpayers money. He had no problem giving the Auto companies $50 Billion. I guess that are not enough coons in the baking business. He needs a King Dong up his azz.

he had to rob the taxpayer to help the auto industry.
we could survive without the crooks that he helped. just drive a different kind of vehicle.
he could have helped honest people build jobs.
instead he is causing the economy to grow worse day by day, with a bunch of hypnotized lib bots smiling and nodding while the US goes down the drain,

Hostess filed for bankruptcy not once but twice in the past 10 years or so. Obama had nothing to do with the poor management of the company nor the demands from the worker's union.

Got news for you fruitloops. The problems at Hostess is due to management ..... not due to President Obama or unions. Hostess is owned by two hedge funds. Hedge funds can use high-risk techniques, which are not allowed for mutual funds, such as short-selling (which is very risky).

The hedge funds loaded Hostess with debt to where it couldn't function. They (Hostess) first filed for bankruptcy in 2004. If you blame who was President then I guess you fruitloops want to blame Bush because he was President when Hostess began failing.

But it wasn't Bush or Obama. It was due to practices of hedge funds that care about profit over the companies they buy. You know ..... the type practices you defended Romney for doing. Now you are seeing the effects of those type practices ..... the possible end of tasty little twinkies.

Btw, the Hostess employees, represented by their union, were not demanding higher pay. The hedge fund owners (through Hostess) were cutting employee pay by 8 percent and benefits by about 30 percent. The union was only fighting pay and benefit cuts.

You're right. The auto industry spread across several businesses. They've also paid all back except $25M which is precisely the dollar amount that actually GWB passed to them before left office. Further, GM cars are important to America. Either we buy some GM vehicles and keep Americans working, or, we go to all Japanese cars and China starts weasling it's cheap piece of crap in here.

I know of one company which makes parts for GM. They make the sensors for the transmissions. The company was recently bought by Bain. Bain is right now in the process of laying off all the workers, permanently shutting down the company, and is moving it to China. Bain was founded by the same person who was for letting Detroit go bankrupt ..... your favorite ex-candidate, Romney.
