29 Nov 2010 FEP’s Tom Borelli on Bloomberg TV Friday Afternoon
Tom Borelli, director of the National Center’s Free Enterprise Project, is set to appear on Bloomberg TV on Friday, October 29 at approximately 4:30PM eastern.
Tom will discuss how the tea party movement is as distrustful of big business as it is of politicians.
In an article published by Bloomberg Businessweek last week and reiterated in a Wall Street Journal column today by former Clinton Administration secretary of labor Robert B. Reich today, it is reported that the tea party movement wants to hold corporate leaders accountable for their support of risky schemes such cap-and-trade and Obamacare that hurt their employees, shareholders and the public at large.
In his column, Reich wrote specifically about Tom and the FEP’s battle with General Electric CEO Jeff Immelt:
Tom Borelli, director of the Free Enterprise Project of the National Center for Public Policy Research, a conservative think tank and vocal supporter of the tea party movement, has demanded Mr. Immelt’s resignation, calling GE an “opportunistic parasite feeding on the expansion of government.” Among Mr. Immelt’s alleged sins: taking federal subsidies for clean energy. In a press release last week, the National Center for Public Policy Research stated clearly: “Liberal CEOs are the next target for tea party activism.”
The Free Enterprise Project has a petition demanding Immelt’s resignation due to his lobbying for economically risky Obama Administration initiatives and simultaneously running the MSNBC news network that can be found here.
