    Obama signs 3 Exec. Orders at 11:00 a.m. today, one being that federal contractors must inform employees of their union rights and employers are not to interfere with unions (whatever that means?). Again, instead of Congress passing laws, Obama is using Exec. Orders to empower organized labor and continue the trend toward socialism. He says, "To me a Labor Union is part of the solution". Joe Biden says, "Organized labor, welcome back to the White House". These guys makes it sound like only union people make up the middle class which is absurd. Some of the trapshooters out there could be affected by this because of the web of reach of the Federal contractor system, sub-contractors, and so on. With all due respect to organize labor, what this country needs are businesses (especially small businesses) providing growth and at this time do we really need more government (Dept. of Labor) in your businesses? How many of these businesses will close their doors should this trend continue? I had 30 years of experience dealing with the previous governmental rules,laws, Fed. reporting and I'm glad that I'm retired and not have to deal with these changes. It will not be good for business.

    This executive order tric was Clinton's way of legislating without going through the Congress via introduced bills.

    Hussy learned that from him. We will never be rid of the clinton influence evenafter they are both dead.

    --Require federal contractors to offer jobs to current workers when contracts change.

    --Reverse a Bush order requiring federal contractors to post notice that workers can limit financial support of unions serving as their exclusive bargaining representatives.

    --Prevent federal contractors from being reimbursed for expenses meant to influence workers deciding whether to form a union and engage in collective bargaining.

    These are the 3 Executive Orders signed by Obama on 1-30-09. Source Fox News website. BT-100dc
