Afraid that impending layoffs of government contract workers will lose him votes, obama has ignored the provisions of the Warn Act that requires companies doing business with in this case the defense department to notify employees of pending layoffs 60 days prior to January 2 of the coming year. In his usual disgusting disregard of the law, obama and his flunkies have sent a letter through the Labor department indicating that any and all penalties that might be incurred as a result of companies ignoring the law would be paid by the government. Lockheed Aircraft was the first whore to accede to the request from the administration. Monies that would be paid to offset penalties would be from US TAXPAYERS. WHY ARE WE LETTING THEM GET AWAY WITH THIS?
