Pelosi’s Job Plan? Shutting Down Private Business

November 01, 2011

With unemployment remaining above 9%, Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has an unorthodox jobs program – shutting down private business and jeopardizing good-paying jobs in the process.


In an interview late last week, House Minority Leaeder Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told CNBC that Boeing should either unionize its production facilities in South Carolina, or shut them down entirely.

“Do you think it’s right that Boeing has to close down that plant in South Carolina because it’s non union?” asked host Maria Bartiromo. Pelosi’s reply: “Yes.”

The minority leader quickly added that she would rather it simply unionize and stay open. But barring unionization, by Pelosi’s reasoning, it should simply shut down.

It is absolutely outrageous that liberals in Congress and President Obama would allow their extreme ideology to cost American jobs.

Boeing workers should not have their jobs held hostage to the NLRB, or to the Big Union favoritism on display from Nancy Pelosi.
