This is another fantastic example of this administration's disengenuousness.
700+ waivers from the health care law - primarily to who? Unions. What was one of the groups that were the strongest supports of the Democrat party
and Obama? Unions.
GE is in bed with this administration. Jeff Immelt is close friends with Obama and has been a vocal supporter of the Obama agenda.
GE stands to gain massively from the cap and trade and other carbon limiting schemes, you know, those green technologies that Obama is pushing and
wants to toss $billions of money into.
GE is the world leader in wind and solar energy, having bought that entire business from ENRON when that firm melted down. They are the corporate
muscle behind the green infrastructure.
Lets not forget about the defense infrastructure contracts that GE has been receiving.
Oh, I forgot the media outlets owned by GE that are mouth organs for the Obama administration.
This is dirty business. This makes anything that Haliburton was doing with the government look like a candy store.
Where is the investative reporting on this wedding of a massive corporation with the government? Why is this blatant corruption not being discussed
in the MSM?
GE is a dirty firm as dirty as any agra-business, oil or big pharma firm.
In the private sector, when this kind of thing happens it is called a conflict of interest. It happens all the time, but it is universally thought
to be unethical, which is one of the reasons we have a separation of duties ingrained in common audit practices in the corporate world. Significant
segregation of duties is a central tenet of Sarbanes/Oxley. I guess those standards don't apply here.
