    Obama Administration Gave General Electric—Parent Company of NBC--$24.9 Million in ‘S

    (CNSNews.com) - The Obama administration gave corporate giant General Electric—the parent company of NBC--$24.9 million in grants from the $787-billion economic “stimulus” law President Barack Obama signed in February 2009, according to records posted by the administration at Recovery.gov.

    Despite getting $24.9 million from U.S. taxpayers, GE decreased its U.S.-based employees by 18,000 in 2009, according to the company’s 2009 annual report.

    If this were a republican doing this the outrage level, and rhetoric from the left would be deafening. Where are the libs on this?

    Actually, republicans have. Go back in the past and look at GM getting money for a jobs program in which they laid off workers. But, let me ask, did Obama do this? Was he the one signing off? How were people picked to get stimulus money. I think a lot more has to be shown before this has legs. Perhaps that is why there is a lack of sound sources on this. You think?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Ok, getting tired of your dismissal of sources. Please lay out all "sound" sources by name if you would so that we know what you will accept as news.

    Because I am getting the feeling that you just don't accept anything that doesn't agree with you.

    How can liberals be so blind to the corruption going on with GE, bend over MSNBC,NBC and Obama?



    Oct 11, 2010 ... No conflict of interest since the CEO of GE, Jeff Immelt, sits as a Obama economic adviser. Nothing to see here folks. Move along. ...

    Since when is CNSnews.com a primary source of news and not partisan?

    Dude, GE is in nearly every aspect of the economy in one way or another. I can't imagine a scenerio where a stimulus was passed and GE didn't get some portion of the money.

    According to forbes, GE is the second largest company in the world, they made 10.7 billion dollars in income last year. (General Electric - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) 25 million is literally a drop in the bucket for them.

    To insinuate that this is payback for good coverage of Obama, or payback for something that NBC has done for Obama is silly at best.

    Maybe since they quote a RECOVERY.GOV spokeswoman?

    GE was the primary recipient of 14 stimulus grants, a spokeswoman for Recovery.gov confirmed to CNSNews.com. These 14 grants provided GE with $24.9 million in tax dollars. On four additional stimulus grants, the primary recipient of the federal money hired GE as a contractor. Recovery.gov is the administration’s website that tracks stimulus expenditures.
    No wait... RECOVERY.GOV is just a Republican shil, right?
