    here's our Jobs Czars take on Occupy Wall Street. so how can anyone any Democrat, think that this sorry ass excuse for a Democratic administration does not work solely for the corporations. It flies in the face of reality to believe that the Democrat's are better then... the government  is the enforcer and ATM for the corporations bi-partisanly.

    Obama-appointed CEO: Protesters should ‘root for me’

    “I want you to root for me,” Immelt said. “Everybody in Japan roots for Toshiba. Everybody in China roots for China South Rail. I want you to say, ‘Win, G.E.’”

    Not only has G.E. shipped thousands of U.S. jobs overseas, the company also reportedly paid no taxes in 2010. Protesters at Occupy Wall Street and across the country are calling for corporations to be taxed at least at the same rate as individuals.'

    •  a great response by Russ Feingold (2+ / 0-)
      Former Wisconsin Sen. Russ Feingold (D) responded to Immelt Monday.
      “Mr. Immelt is not recognizing that you root for corporations when corporations are making sure your jobs stay here in the United States,” Feingold explained. “His corporation has had more to do with shipping jobs overseas than almost any corporation in the world. And so, the deal here is we root for corporations and we support them if they’re fair to us. And these people who are protesting are recognizing that just about everything that has happened to working people has been unfair in recent years.”
