DETROIT – We commend President Obama for his leadership and support for the U.S. auto industry. His actions helped prevent a second Great Depression, saving more than a million American jobs in the process. Domestic automakers have pledged investment in U.S. plants through 2015 that will mean more than 40,000 direct manufacturing jobs in the United States.
The renewed American automotive industry is now America’s No. 1 export sector. The Obama administration, American workers and retirees, and the U.S. automotive industry made tough choices and sacrifices to make this turnaround possible. The automobile sector supports over 3 million good-paying jobs in assembly plants, auto parts manufacturing, repair shops, dealerships and other supporting businesses nationwide. In 2012, U.S. automotive exports totaled $133 billion, an increase of more than $17 billion (14 percent) over 2011. Domestic manufacturing has long been the foundation of a strong middle class, and the automobile industry is the one of the most critical for U.S. manufacturing.
Under the president’s leadership, we are implementing higher fuel efficiency standards from 2017-2025, effectively doubling vehicle fuel efficiency, drastically reducing carbon emissions and creating several hundred thousand jobs. About 50,000 of these jobs will be in auto parts manufacturing and vehicle assembly alone.Read more >>>

From all reports we’ve seen, President Obama is going to propose a budget plan this week that is unprecedented for a Democratic president. It will propose a cut to Social Security benefits for seniors, veterans and people with disabilities.
It appears the proposed cut will take the form of “chained” CPI—a discredited way of calculating annual cost-of-living increases that does not keep up with actual costs, eating into benefits.
But there’s more. The president’s budget proposal also would require middle-class seniors—people who make $47,000 a year and more—to pay higher Medicare premiums.Read more >>>

You've heard the Mainstream Media read you the Hostess PR sheet, now hear the truth from the mouths of the people who had their pension stolen. As the mainstream media distracted America with misinformation about Unions, the Hedge Funds got away with theft. They collected $4.25 an hour from each and every worker for the Baker's pension fund, then refused to send the money to the pension. Read more >>>

New York Times; A Million Jobs at Stake
With enormous struggle, the sluggish economy managed to create 2.2 million jobs last year. But beginning at the end of this month, at least half that amount — more than a million jobs — will start to disappear because of a mindless government austerity program that no one in Washington seems able to stop.

Ouch! No, You're Not Imagining It,Your Paycheck Just Shrank.
Neil Irwin, WASHINGTON POST, January 11, 2013
Many Americans received their first paycheck of 2013 today. That sound you hear is the collective “What the . .. “ they have emitted upon looking at their pay stub.
For all the self-congratulatory back-patting from the White House and Congress on the deal that averted the “fiscal cliff” of tax increases—the deal locked in the George W. Bush-era tax cuts for households making under $450,000—they tended not to mention what the deal did, or rather didn’t do, on the payroll tax. A 2 percentage point reduction in the Social Security tax, which hits all American workers, had been enacted at the end of 2010. In the fiscal cliff deal, Congress and President Obama neither extended it further nor agreed on any other policies that might have the similar effect of leaving more money in workers’ pockets.

The Atlantic City Expressway takes you quickly and efficiently into the city and the Casinos. As you travel the Expressway you can not avoid the scenic water and brackish back bays that parallel your route, never considering how close the Atlantic Ocean really is. Atlantic City historically was a beachfront resort, devoted to sun, sand and of course the sea. Today, perhaps because of Casino marketing, we tend to view Atlantic City as a Casino-Entertainment venue; glitz, glitter and excitement. The sea was largely forgotten and ignored. Hurricane Sandy brought the stark reality of Atlantic City's vulnerability to us all.

RETIREE'S CHRISTMAS PARTY
DETROIT – Even after Chrysler Corp.'s Gualberto Ranieri, vice president of communications, said Friday, “Let's set the record straight: Jeep has no intention of shifting production of its Jeep models out of North America to China,” the Romney campaign put out a false and misleading ad basically repeating his bogus statement made Thursday in Ohio that Chrysler was moving all Jeep production to China.
Author Greg Palast, in his book, "Billionaires and Ballot Bandits," examines the role Mitt Romney played in the Delphi bailout and how he and other economic vultures made millions as the storied parts supplier went into and came out of bankruptcy. In this video, Palast tells how Mitt and Ann Romney made at least $15 million from the carcass of Delphi and as much as $115 million.
It also shows how Romney's cronies made more than $4 billion off the bankruptcy. These same billionaires also contributed millions to his presidential campaign.
