17 Apr 2009 Obama Reverses Labor Union Transparency Rules
The Obama Administration has just reversed rules requiring labor unions to make public certain financial and compensation arrangements.
The rules requiring disclosure had been adopted to help root out and prevent corruption and conflicts of interest.
In effect, the Administration said filing the forms was just too much of a bother for the unions, which, coincidentally, were a major backer of Obama’s election.
No word on whether the Administration plans to reverse rules requiring taxpayers to file the onerous 1040 Form, the filing of which is regarded as a great bother.
