The Curious Case of the Amtrak Inspector General's Retire...

http://www.fiscala ccountability.org/ index.php?content= amtrk_ig First it was I.G. Walpin who was investigating BO 's supporter on the misused of Americorp funds. Now it is I.G. Weiderhold for investigating Amtrak’s activities. The Inspector General Act, amended last year and CO-SPONSORED by Barack Obama, requires the President to notify Congress in writing within 30 days the reasons for removing an Inspector General from office. Did Obama knowingly break the law on this one or did TOTUS forget to tell him he couldn't do it.  (Aug 6, 2009 | post #1)

DoD Appropriations Act and the Davis Bacon Act

http://workerfreed om.org/davis-bacon -research The DoD Appropriations Act 2010 passed the house last week without including the Connie Mack amendment that would have removed the Davis_Bacon Act from H.R.3326. We need to get our spending under control. Contact your Senator and let them know that this outdated Act is hurting our recovery efforts.  (Aug 3, 2009 | post #1)

Obama Makes False Claims during Business Week Interview

http://www.atr.org /index.php?content =073009_dms As usual Obama is making statements that sound good to the media but is totally opposite of what he is doing. His actions will drive every major competitive company out of the country and dry up all the mom & pops so all that will be left are government owned and run entities.  (Aug 1, 2009 | post #1)

Return Of The Tax Shelter President

Unlike Congress They Read What They Are Signing

http://www.workerf reedom.org/binding -arbitration-right s-a3657 Despite rumors that the "card check" provision may be removed from EFCA, other clauses of this bill will still have a negative impact on the relationship between employers and employees. A few of the changes to the NLRA are neither the employer nor employee will have the right to turn down an arbitrator’s proposed contract. Also, all negotiation will not exceed 120 days of bargaining. Most contract negotiations go beyond 120 days. Maybe because unlike congress both parties read what they are signing!  (Jul 27, 2009 | post #1)

Big Labor Transparency Problems

http://www.fiscala ccountability.org/ index.php?content= tr_labor Labor Sec. Solis want to do away with the annual LM-2 report. The LM-2 report allows Union members to see how union dues are being spent. Also at risk for getting the axe is LM-30 report that would allow paychecks into union coffers instead of employee accounts. While Secretary Solis is demolishing workers protection, President Obama is entertaining Union Leader's wants for a second stimulus. (click on links in article)  (Jul 20, 2009 | post #1)
