Biden to be "Working Families Czar"

Everybody is a Czar
by 2Truthy

Everybody is a czar!
Who can chase white collar jobs away
Everybody wants to arbitrage
Every last white collar job away

‘Til the Fondue Forums in Davos
When the system sells our jobs around
To elites from India
You don’t need Biden to spread the nukes around.

Ba pa-pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba, ba-pa ba-pa ba ba, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Everybody is a czar!
I can feel it when
When the Joe comes around
Talking up the middle class while
His CFR peeps work hard to tear it down
Ever catch a high caste lobbyist
Try to spread wealth up but just not down
Everybody is a czar
One tight circle watching the middle class drown.

Ba pa-pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba, ba-pa ba-pa ba ba, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, oohBa pa-pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba, ba-pa ba-pa ba ba, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, oohBa pa-pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba, ba-pa ba-pa ba ba, shine, shine, shine, shine(repeat and fade)

Everybody is a Czar!

Obama's transition team announced the new "White House Task Force on Working Families" -- a major initiative targeted at "raising the living standards of middle-class, working families in America." The initiative will be chaired by Biden, a curious pick, as this No Slaves article explains how Joe sports a track record of being anything but a champion of the middle class. reports that other members of the task force will include the secretaries of labor, health and human services, and commerce, as well as the directors of the National Economic Council, the Office of Management and Budget, and the Domestic Policy Counsel, and the chair of the Council of Economic Advisors.

Last week, Rob Oak from The Economic Populist reported that the newly named DOL Secretary pushed to labor arbitrage U.S. workers by appointing Congresswoman Rep. Hilda Solis, who cosponsored the STRIVE act, the most notorious labor arbitrage bill targeting American workers, especially those in the Professional (STEM, S&T) career areas with this voting record on guest worker Visas. Oak aptly summarizes the Obama Administration’s anti-white collar American worker mandate here:

“Thanks Obama, just what we need, more displacement of U.S. workers through guest worker Visa programs and even worse, sure thing, we need to deny Americans opportunity to even higher education too because you are busy turning our university system into a glorified green card machine.”

No specific definitions were cited by CNN as to what income level constitutes the moniker “middle class” these days, nor did it list specific reforms and timelines to stop outsourcing and insourcing millions of white collar jobs for educated American workforce.

To be fair, not only Biden but all of Obama’s peeps, including the well known Hillary D-Punjab turned SOS are pro-white collar job sell out to India as this Council of Foreign Relations report explains in detail here.

Additionally, the CNN article cites an interview with ABC's "This Week," where Biden said it's a

“discrete job that's going to last only for a certain period of time."

Discreet? Biden continued:

"The one thing that we use as a yardstick of economic success of our administration: Is the middle class growing? Is the middle class getting better? Is the middle class no longer being left behind? And we'll look at everything from college affordability to after-school programs, the things that affect people's daily lives. I will be the guy honchoing that policy," he said.

How much power will Biden have in shaping the outcome of disappearing white collar jobs to India? He stated that he indeed will have the authority to get a “consensus among the task force” -- but he will use his relationship with the president if a consensus isn't reached.

What “consensus” is Biden reaching for? Joe “Bankruptcy Bill” Biden’s track record for sticking it to educated white collar Americans is disappointing, and the CNN report only mentions window-dressing “reforms” at the blue collar level, ignoring the Obama Administration’s plans to give millions of American white collar jobs to India via outsourcing and insourcing:

"Obama has set up several key goals for the task force, including expanding education and training; improving work and family balance; a focus on labor standards, including workplace safety; and protecting working-family incomes and retirement security. So what power will the new task force have in shaping policy? According to the transition team, Biden and other members "will expedite administrative reforms, propose Executive orders, and develop legislative and public policy proposals that can be of special importance to working families."
"My administration will be absolutely committed to the future of America's middle-class and working families. They will be front and center every day in our work in the White House," said Obama in a statement. "And this Task Force will be one vehicle we will use to ensure that we never forget that commitment."

Biden said the measure of economic success in an Obama administration would be whether the middle class was growing, but what specific class of jobs and income levels “define” the term “middle class” to the Obama Administration? How can economic success be achieved by millions of middle class professionals when Obama, Hillary, and Biden have all already pledged to redistribute them to foreign workers? No, the “middle class” that Obama and Friends refer to is one where the vast majority of millions of educated Americans, accustomed to earning six figure incomes in professions including engineering, computer science, information technology, finance and journalism are kicked out of the workforce to “accommodate” unlimited numbers of imported workers to take their jobs for a fraction of the pay. This practice is known as “labor arbitrage” and is the sharpest tool in the shed for greedy corporate profiteers to bleed America’s educated middle class from extinction.

When Czar Biden finally “reaches his consensus”, will the middle class purge be executed, leaving this country with the ultimate reign of elitism with a void between a Have/Have-Not caste system with no one left in between?

How fast and how far can the hubris disease spread? Look to America’s insufferable, greedy corporate “thought leaders” and our corrupt, enabling pols and above all, hail our new Czar, Joe Biden -- appointed to put the One World, shiny, happy face seal of approval on the demise of America’s white collar middle class citizens, widening the divide between rich and poor as never seen before in this country.

I wonder what kind of "education and training" the Obama administration is thinking of?

You're absolutely right, TooTruthy. Biden and his cronies will be working on issues like expanding the Family and Medical Leave Act while doing nothing about the thousands of jobs that continue to be exported each year.

So, Czar Biden will be driving the bus while the rest of his committee toss the workers underneath the wheels?

Dear Citizen C.--

Huzzah! I agree whole-heartedly with your comments. The Obama team is ready to come in and blow the dust off those "Ameros" stacked up in some corner of the Philadelphia mint, and get them into circulation "pronto"!

NAFTA and the multi-national corporate structure, full speed ahead!

American jobs--and the American worker and his/her family--be damned.

2Truthy said...

Haha CC, Biden,D-DEATH of MIDDLE CLASS. I love your Biden/busdriver analogy -- Biden, the busdriver from Hell will preside over the extermination of the whiny overeducated American middle class with a smile!! And get the Dems to go right along with it, too!

Heil the troika of Obie, Biden and Hillary! Each with their CFR and WEF entrenched ties to the Indian lobby.

Patrick, why would the U.S. have the Indian navy go after those Somalian pirates?

Why would the U.S. have the Indian navy go after those Somali pirates.


Um ... I dunno. Because "Somali" rhymes with "curry"? With "rupee"?

2Truthy said...

Could be:)
Those Somalian swashbucklers, why are they gunning at everyone on the high seas, anyway? As for that Indian navy: The U.S. gives their country our white collar jobs as a 'cost-effective' way of outsourcing its "war on terra" to India. Our elected officials are blooming geniuses, Ollie!
