Committee Republicans Demand NLRB Cease Job-Destroying Bureaucratic Activism

Committee Republicans Demand NLRB Cease Job-Destroying Bureaucratic Activism

Republican Members of the House Education and the Workforce Committee have demanded the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) end its job-destroying activist agenda. In a letter to NLRB Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon, members describe a number of actions by the Obama labor board that call into question the objectivity and credibility of the office, including the NLRB’s most recent effort to force The Boeing Company to relocate a South Carolina assembly line to Washington.

As the Republican members note, “Taken together, your actions threaten future economic growth and job creation and reflect an unsavory culture of union favoritism. We demand you cease your bureaucratic activism immediately and restore the objectivity that is essential to the effectiveness and credibility of the General Counsel’s office.”

IRS, The New Health Care Police!

Under The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA),  Americans will be required to have health insurance, and that brings with it a whole new level of administrative duties. Someone will have to serve as the health care police. It appears those tasks will fall to the IRS.

Some of the new tasks that will be required once the health law is fully implemented. According to Kaiser Health News this will involve:
  • Monitoring compliance. Taxpayers will have to provide proof of coverage with their annual federal tax returns. Failure to comply will result in a penalty, payable to the IRS.
  • Distributing new government subsidies to low-income individuals through newly created state exchanges.
  • Overseeing small business tax credits to help qualifying businesses provide insurance to employees.
  • Assessing a tax on insurers that provide insurance benefits that are high-cost, or “Cadillac” plans.
  • Enforcing penalties for improper distributions from Health Savings Accounts, which are likely to increase under the new plan.
  • Overseeing the demand that not-for-profit hospitals live up to their “charitable missions” by doing a “charitable needs assessment” once every three years.
  • Regulating contributions to Flexible Spending Accounts, which under the new law are now limited.
In addition the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) says that the tax agency will also collect new fees levied on employers, drug makers, device manufacturers and health insurance providers. The CBO reports that this could amount to hundreds of billions of dollars.

NLRB Takes Shot Over The Bow Of Right To Work States

Acting NLRB General
Council Leaf Solomon
The NLRB Acting General Council Leaf Solomon filed a complaint against Boeing charging the company violated Federal Labor Law by building a plant in North Carolina. The claim is the company is building a plant in a Right To Work State to avoid hiring union labor. This ridiculous claim finally places Obama's Radical NLRB Appointments on display for all to see.

Boeing has fired back, "This claim is legally frivolous and represents a radical departure from both NLRB and Supreme Court precedent," Michael Luttig, Boeing's general counsel, said in a statement. "Boeing has every right under both federal law and its collective bargaining agreement to build additional U.S. production capacity outside of the Puget Sound region." Boeing noted that it announced plans to build a new factory in South Carolina, a right to work state, 17 months ago, The plant is nearing completion and the company has already hired 1,000 workers.

Obama's Most Egregious
Recess Appointment

Senator DeMint blasted the NLRB Complaint against Boeing.
"This is nothing more than a political favor for the unions who are supporting President Obama's re-election campaign. Unfortunately, it comes at the expense of hundreds of jobs in South Carolina and thousands of jobs nationwide. There is no doubt that if the National Labor Relations Board's claim against Boeing moves forward, it will have a chilling effect on job growth in my state and in right-to-work states across the country. Using the federal government as political weapon to protect union bosses at the expense of American jobs cannot be tolerated. I intend to use every tool at my disposal as a United States Senator to stop the President from carrying out his malicious act." Read More The Washington Examiner: 

Why didn't Boeing Consider New Jersey for Its New Plant?
The answer is obvious, "New Jersey is Not a Right To Work State". If it was, there may have been an opportunity for thousands of new Jobs to be created by not only Boeing but a myriad of other Businesses relocating here, but they will never come to New Jersey because of the current NJ Legislature Democrat Majority's historic hostility towards Business, including their refusal to consider any meaningful reforms that would attract new business or existing businesses to relocate to the State.
