There is a very dangerous trend going on in America where politician are threatening businesses to bend to their wishes. We need companies to manage their business prudently and responsibly, not cater to politicians. In Illinois, the governor and other local politicians are threatening Bank of America to keep credit open to a company called Republic Windows & Doors. It is a failing company and BOA has cut off credit to them as they should. But these politicians are saying if BOA cuts off credit, they will stop doing business with BOA. Sadly, Obama has made a statement supporting this action. NO, this must stop now! Our businesses have no social responsibilty to pay workers of a company that has is failing. Obama can not support such foolishness. Businesses are in business to make money, not lose it. "Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich‚Äôs threat to halt the state‚Äôs dealings with Bank of America Corp. over a shut-down factory in Chicago extends a ‚Äúdangerous‚ÄĚ trend of politicians meddling with commerce, a former general counsel of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. said. Blagojevich, a Democrat, yesterday said the biggest U.S. retail bank won‚Äôt get any more state business unless it restores credit to Republic Windows & Doors, whose workers are staging a sit-in. ‚ÄúThey‚Äôre absolutely right,‚ÄĚ Obama, who gave up his U.S. Senate seat from Illinois last month, said over the weekend. ‚ÄúThese workers, if they have earned these benefits and their pay, then these companies need to follow through on those commitments.‚ÄĚ http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=agOFtufX.FXQ No Mr president elect, you're wrong here. If the workers owed money, it is the company they worked for that owes it to them. I support Obama on most of his plans so far, but this one is ridiculously wrong.
