    But you didn't answer my question. Why shouldn't the President do all he can to avoid layoff notices to workers that may never result in layoffs? It should tell you that he will be trying to make a deal after the election. Is that why you are upset? You would think that would make you happy, unless you want those layoffs to take place.

    Wow. Just....wow. You actually make The Pete look somewhat reasoned and unbiased.

    Because I have no need to answer the silly fantasies you pull out of your ass to make sure OBAMA GUD, REPUBLICANZ BAD.

    His motive is obvious, and even if it weren't, it doesn't give him the authority to actually do this, nor does it explain exactly where the funds to pay for the legal costs of said companies are going to come from without appropriation from Congress. That, of course, is totally over your head, because you, again, have no idea what's actually going on here.

    This thread is a perfect example of the moral and ethical depravity of those who support Obama.

    It's been established that he is willing to ignore the limits to the powers and authority of his position and is willing to commit taxpayer dollars in order to prompt companies to violate the law.

    But the Obama supporters will use irrelevant rationalizations, feel-good reasoning and any kind of spin they can think of...including somehow making this whole thing seem like the Republican's fault...to justify his actions.

    How did the Democrats ever get to this state?

    Because Obama can't keep the cuts from happening alone. I'm happy for these co sequences. When you have such high deficits then cuts have to happen and taxes have to go up, they can only continue in the mind of someone who spends a lot of time in Washington. It's all about prioritization, something we all do every day.

    I wouldn't say moral, but certainly ethical, for sure. They will defend ANYTHING their 'guy' does... even though we know if the other 'guy' did it, they'd be raising hell.

    The latest memorandum states the federal government would cover employee compensation under the WARN Act -- "irrespective of the outcome" as long as the contractor follows the Labor Department guidelines.

    I can only image "employee compensation" isn't for the companies, rather the employees.

    You can imagine anything you like. What it is is bribery, using taxpayer dollars, so that the REALITY doesnt make him 'look bad' before the election. Funny...the cuts kicked in because congress couldnt manage to effect deficit spending curbs...and now...in response to the cuts...the WH is obligating MORE deficit spending. Un****ingbelievable.

    You know full well that it was the GOP's absolute ban on revenue increases that caused the impass in Congress. That will no longer be a problem after the election. The problem will be Republicans voting against tax CUTS for the middle class even if the mitigation of some of sequestration cuts is offered as part of the deal. Those tax cuts for the upper brackets that are expiring would bring extra revenue that could reduce those cuts substantially without adding to the deficit. See how that all works out?
