Lana at the National Labor Relations Board jokes about the organization's lawsuit against Boeing's move to send jobs to South Carolina.
In an email General Counsel lake Solomon says I'm quoting now.
The -- -- gave me a new idea.
You go to Geneva and I get a job with boss we screwed up the US economy and now we could -- Europe.
That's is a government lawyer joking okay admittedly joking about how a government lawsuit can kill the economy.
-- -- from the Americans for prosperity live with us now from DC -- that was clearly a joke.
But -- ups are you upset about it.
Well look I don't think it's very funny when you've got a -- a bureaucrat and I -- -- securities not the general -- these the acting General Counsel the -- not acted on this -- nomination when he was nominated back in January they heading in that hearing.
In the senate help committee because they're embarrassed by his lawsuit against Boeing and -- lawsuits against force states to overturn.
-- secret ballot protections and union organizing and you've got a bureaucrat.
Who's completely out of control who is suing -- company for creating -- thousand jobs in Charleston, South Carolina it is not funny.
To joke about leaving the country -- going to work for that US companies number one competitor in Europe I don't think that's funny at all.
Okay because it is not funny -- would -- -- accept that but is there a Connell of truth within that statement which is.
Did they really -- the economy -- screw borrowing by not allowing this move from Washington to the Carolinas.
Well it wasn't a move they located a separate production facility in Charleston for the 787 dreamliner -- lake Solomon.
The a man who wrote this very funny email.
I was unable to point to a single worker in Washington think it was harmed in any way by the by the location of a separate production facility in South Carolina what this really is.
Is retaliation for those workers in South Carolina not choosing to join the union and -- are therefore being harassed and I think.
This sends a chilling effect on any company that's considering locating a production facility in a right to work state sends a chilling -- on a lot of companies that are not in the US now.
To tell -- hey don't even bother coming here because you may face lawsuits from bureaucrats and Stewart.
This is about to get much much worse because the NLRB itself the board itself which is about to lose its quorum it needs three members according to the US Supreme Court -- -- Passed the November 3 order delegating all of its responsibility it's too late Solomon the -- in General Counsel -- -- this man.
Is about to get much much more power in the senate still has another hearing on and they still haven't voted on -- -- think I'm wrong.
-- -- -- In Hawaii over the weekend Jim -- and any CEO of Boeing.
Act passed President Obama a balance Barry is to foreign companies coming into America.
The president responded in part by saying.
Maybe we've been lazy.
May -- we've been a bit lazy over the past couple of decades.
Now what do you make of that statement from the president told about laziness.
When asked by a Boeing -- that cheap guy at Boeing.
About bringing in more foreign money to America.
Well -- and I think it's an amazing effort to try to pass the buck because this president and his administration have been the most aggressively anti business administration we've ever seen in this country.
You look at the full extent of the regulatory onslaught it's not just what the NLRB is doing but the EPA the FDA HHS.
-- that are etc.
when you have all of these bureaucrat saying you can't do this you can't do that you can't -- here you can create jobs there.
That was an environment that is very -- hospitable to foreign investment and I think that the administration needs to look at themselves and they need to change.
Their attitude towards business and particularly towards regulation and I think the first thing this president should do.
Is withdrawal of Solomon's nomination let's get a General Counsel doesn't have is that all of another agent if -- is not -- it.
I think it's unlikely unfortunately because this administration has been tone -- and well I think we'll continue on the same path they've been on.
But I think we need to start demanding that the senate.
Act on his nomination let's have a four vote if he passes -- he gets his four year term.
But if he's rejected them the president should nominate someone else he's been pending since January let's vote on this -- alright -- company thanks for joining us apologists thank you.
My -- now would.
