USA Today reports that President Obama is beginning a series of meetings with representatives of various sectors to begin looking at solutions for the coming “fiscal cliff,” that time when the current tax rates end and then go up. Naturally, his first meetings are with Big Labor.
Obama will meet with leaders of the AFL-CIO, the SEIU, AFSCME, and the National Education Association.
It’s bad enough that Obama is once again going straight to Big Labor first and foremost — even though labor unions are one of the causes of the down economy — Obama also invited the heads of several extremist, left-wing propaganda groups such as the Center for American Progress, the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities and MoveOn.org.
These later groups have no business at all being involved in negotiations for solutions to America’s fiscal crisis.
Obama has said that his primary focus will be to simply raise taxes on “the rich” instead of actually trying to solve our fiscal malaise and by inviting these extremist, left-wing groups as his first stop on the road to “solutions” I think we can begin to see that Obama has no interest in what is good for our fiscal health. His goal will be to push socialist-inspired, left-wing, anti-business policies.
It remains to be seen of GOP Speaker of the House John Boehner will stand on principle or cave in to Obama’s anti-business agenda.
