"Been to the Whitehouse"?<quoted text>
Exactly! Not only has GE not paid any corporate taxes in the last few years they also received billions in tax payer money from Obama. Immelt has been to the White House more times than the crazy, warped VP Biden since Obama has been president.
Reid and Pelosi claimed that Romney paid no taxes (which they were both outed as liars on that so-called fact) and they also claimed that Romney had all these secret offshore accounts. Well, lo and behold, it was proven that Pelosi has offshore accounts and makes at least a million dollars a year overseas and she keeps that money overseas.
Pelosi was the head nut in charge of pushing Obama/Pelosi healthcare down our throats yet just a few weeks ago she tried to get her low-paid staff exempted from Obamacare because it would put a hardship on them (money-wise) and they would quit working for her and go get a real job so as to hopefully afford all of Pelosi's and Obama's and Reid's healthcare penalties and fines and taxes they have forced on the rest of America's citizens.
MSNBC tell you that?
He is part of the Chicago Gang now!
In February 2009, Immelt was appointed as a member to the President's Economic Recovery Advisory Board to provide the president and his administration with advice and counsel in fixing America's economic downturn. When President Obama chose to put Jeffrey Immelt at the head of the Economic Advisory Board, he felt that Immelt had attributions in knowing what would help the global economy. Obama has reported that Immelt has emerged as one of his top economic advisors in regards to trying to rebuild America's economy.
On January 21, 2011, President Obama announced Immelt's appointment as chairman of his outside panel of economic advisers, succeeding former Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker.
The New York Times reported that Obama's appointment of Immelt was "another strong signal that he intends to make the White House more business-friendly.
Immelt will retain his post at GE while becoming "chairman of the Council on Jobs and Competitiveness", a newly named panel that President Obama is creating by executive order."Despite this, in July 2011 Immelt's General Electric announced that it is in the process of relocating its X-ray division from Wisconsin to China. Immelt had previously referred to China as GE's "second home market".
