    President Obama quietly signs Pro-Union Executive Order

    February 9, 2009

    While everyone is talking about the pork laden stimulus that Obama and many Democrats in Congress are pushing, President Obama very quietly signed a pro union executive order on Friday. It ordered the use of union labor for federal construction projects.

    Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele has made the following statement. "President Obama's executive order will drive up the cost of government at a time when we should be doing everything possible to save taxpayer dollars. Federal contracts should go to the businesses that can offer taxpayers the best value - not just the unions who supported the Democrats' campaigns last year.Quietly signing executive orders to payback campaign backers undermines Obama promise to change Washington. It is a disappointment for Americans hoping for more transparency and less politics as usual in Washington."

    The Presidential-Pretender was misunderstood. When he said "CHANGE...", he meant to say "Change BACK to the Clinton Years." :oops:

    A lot of people thought things would get better once Obama got into office, but now I think many people are realizing that won't be the case.
