Obama Punts On Transparency Again

Obama loosens rules for Unions

There is literally not a week gone by since Barrack Hussein Obama invaded the White House that he has not broken a campaign promise to the American people. Now he is at it again with the unions loosening the transparency and reporting regulations.

Obviously as far as Obama is concerned “transparency” is one of those things that only enemies should be forced to observe. If you are an Obama friend, no transparency is required.

It is interesting to note the language that Democrats used to excuse their newest roll back of transparency requirements, too (my bold).

“The [Labor Management Reporting and Disclosure Act’s] various reporting provisions are designed to empower labor organizations, their members, and the public by providing certain information about the finances of labor organizations and union officers and employees. A fair and transparent government regulatory regime must consider and balance the interests of labor organizations, their members, and the public, including the benefits served by disclosure, the burden placed on reporting entities, and preserving the independence of unions and their officials from unnecessary government regulation.”

Federal Register, Vol. 75, No. 153; Tuesday, August 10, 2010; Proposed Rules, P. 48416

So how does allowing unions to misuse, abuse, and hide expenditures from their own membership, the public and the government by skipping transparency requirements help anyone but the union chiefs that want to hide what they are doing from the prying eyes of reformers?

Obama has got to be the biggest union whore to every exist, does he where kneepads? He spends so much time pandering and paying back these job killing unions that you have to wonder when he has time to get anything else done.
I guess if you look at the rising unemployment numbers and pathetic GDP growth he is doing nothing else. This president is either completely amoral or the one of the dumbest humans ever elected. Its scary to think which is worse. Without his tele-prompter he is constantly frustrating his handlers and blathering out what he really thinks. He has completely made a mockery of his most open transparent government ever. He cuts Chicago style back room deals and just plain lies about it to the American public. His administration will gone down in history as one of the most corrupt, incompetent and least “Transparent” in the history of our republic. In past times you could count on some in the media to call them on it, unfortunately the media is so corrupt and one sided the historians will have to write the story.

Stimulus Payback

December 24, 2009 Leave a comment

Stimulus payback to Obama voters

Another sign of the Obama administrations politics of redistribution and payback was unveiled recently when the Mercatus Center at George Mason University totaled up the numbers provided by the Obama administrations own site showing the blatant corruption involved in awarding stimulus dollars.

A total of 56,399 contracts and grants totaling $157,028,362,536 were awarded in this first quarter for which reports are available. The number of jobs claimed as created or saved is 638,826.54—an average of $245,807.51 per job.

The total amount awarded to public entities (such as municipalities and state agencies) is $87,865,102,272. However, some of this money may have ultimately found its way to private subgrantees or subcontractors. The total amount awarded to private contractors and grantees is $69,163,260,264. While public entities received 45.696 percent of the number of all awards, these awards constituted over half of the dollars awarded (55.955 percent).

Party Affiliation

For our analysis, we looked at the 435 congressional districts in the United States plus the District of Columbia, but excluded Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and foreign stimulus recipients, such as Canada. The average number of awards per district is 128, and the average dollar amount awarded per district is $355,103,891.

There are 177 districts represented by Republicans and 259 represented by Democrats. On average, Democratic districts received 1.6 times more awards than Republican ones. The average number of awards per Republican district is 94, while the average number of awards per Democratic district is 152.

Democratic districts also received 1.89 times more stimulus dollars than Republican districts. The average dollars awarded per Republican district is $232,047,857, while the average dollars awarded per Democratic district is $439,200,100. In total, Democratic districts received 73.47 percent of the total stimulus funds awarded. In terms of numbers of awards, Republican districts received 29.77 percent of the total, while Democratic districts received 70.22 percent.
