As all American know, the narcissistic little boy currently fouling our capital doesn’t care for- or about our laws except when he can’t find a way of breaking them with impunity. It’s bold, even for Obama though, to flout them so openly as he’s just done.
Perhaps fear and desperation have caused him to decompensate, or he’s just returned to his roots.
It’s a bold move for Obama to tell various military contractors not to abide by the WARN Act, signed into law by President George H.W. Bush in 1989, and notify their employees of pending layoffs until after the November elections.
“We assume because it’s the law that it will occur,” Hicks says. “But the implementation of it is not necessarily going to take place on the second of January. It’s likely to unfold over a longer period of time, which gives us the latitude to wait.” Lockheed Martin has come to the same conclusion.
The decisions followed reassurances from the Obama administration that these cuts are not unavoidable. After all, Congress can decide at any time to come to a budget agreement, and toss out those automatic cuts known as sequestration. In addition, some defense jobs rely on ongoing contracts that won’t be affected — not right away, at least.
For those reasons, the White House said, the defense industry doesn’t have to send out notices under a law called the WARN Act, which is supposed to help workers prepare for layoffs.
What it really comes down to is that Obama told these companies to “fuck the law” and do it his way so as to cover his worthless, grifting, ass until after the 2012 elections are over. The boy knows that massive layoffs would hurt his chances and a little thing like the law of the land isn’t going to stand in his way.
Funny, in 2007 when President Bush Jr. was in office, Obama wanted the WARN Act notices extended from 60 to 90 days before reasonably foreseeable layoffs. How the worm has turned.
That’s not surprising though. What are the jobs of 2 million Americans is comparison to the boy’s own job? It’s not as if the filth has ever shown any concern for the American worker except to try to finagle their votes and campaign contributions.
Approximately 2 million jobs might be axed if Congress does nothing to prevent sequestration’s mandatory budget cuts from taking effect Jan. 2, 2013, according to a Sept. 24, 2012, letter to U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., from a bipartisan group of senators. Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., and Graham noted that a million of these jobs—many of which would be with federal contractors—would be due to DOD cuts.
There’s no pressing need to manage that or to inform those Americans in timely and legally required manner of the upcoming changes in their circumstances. They’re not entitled to such consideration if extending it hampers the Campaigner-in-Chief’s goals or his whore’s taxpayer funded lifestyle.
In any even though, the companies affected by this won’t be harmed if they follow Obama’s command. The boy’s already promised to use our tax dollars to reimburse for any costs they incur by doing so.
If sequestration occurs and results in plant closings or mass layoffs, then any resulting costs for WARN Act liability, as well as attorney’s fees and litigation costs would qualify as costs covered by the contracting agency, the OMB specified.
But then, that’s Obama for you. The vermin does whatever he wants that he thinks he can get away with or shuck and jive his ass out of the consequences resulting from doing and then get the American people to pick up the tab.
Keep your eyes open. Travel light but load heavy, and always put another round in the enemy after they’re down. Remember that the law is meant to protect Americans, not our enemies or their crotch-droppings.
