According to a recent Snopes site, President Barack Obama appointed General Electric Chairman Jeff Immelt to head his commission on job creation. That makes Immelt the “job czar.”
Immelt is supposed to help create jobs, but he seems a little confused in which country he is supposed to be creating those jobs. General Electric is planning to move its 115-year-old X-ray division from Waukesha, Wis., to Beijing, China.
In addition to moving the headquarters, the company will invest $2 billion in China and train more than 65 engineers and create six research centers. This is the same G.E. that, according to many sources, made $5.1 billion in the United States last year but paid no taxes, and the same company that employs more people overseas than it does in the United States.
Recently, I read an article about how President Obama is sending U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner to the European Union to speak and advise officials there on how to stay financially well-off — like the U.S.
Geithner — isn’t he the one who cheated on his 2001-04 FICA tax?
Obama has spent more money than any other president in history, is bankrupting the American economy and now insists, in the middle of the nation’s recession, that we support the International Monetary Fund to give bailouts to Italy.
The man is either incompetent or sinister. Either way, I believe he should be impeached as soon as possible to save this nation and free republic.
