Obama: Republicans Want to Emulate China, Roll Back Minimum Wage, Prevent Unionization By Fred Lucas January 10, 2012 Subscribe to Fred Lucas's posts
(CNSNews.com) President Barack Obama accused Republicans of wanting to make America more like China, of seeking to roll back the minimum wage and of wanting to prevent collective bargaining and said the GOP wants to get rid of clean air and water rules.
Obama made the comments Monday at a campaign fundraiser at the Capital Hilton in Washington on the eve of the New Hampshire Republican presidential primary.
Republicans in Congress and these candidates, they think that the best way for America to compete for new jobs and businesses is to follow other countries in a race to the bottom, Obama told a room full of Democratic donors.
They figure, well, China pays low wages, we should pay low wages, he continued. Lets roll back the minimum wage. Lets prevent folks from organizing for collective bargaining in this country. Since other countries allow corporations to pollute as much as they want, why not get rid of the protections that ensure our air is clean and our water is clean.

China’s economy is doing OK while ours is in the crapper.
Wait, didn’t Obama bemoan the fact that America would be easier to “manage” if it could be more like China?
What a shame the republicans are eating their own. I would love to hear them respond to this statement.
Shut up! Barry!
You don’t even make any sense.
Excellent point. I wonder if any of the current crop has the b@lls to make the connection...
Pssst....China...Are you paying attention?? He just "hammered" you. Next, he'll cut you off at the knees...with a sickle.
No, I want Grandma eating dog food.
What is your problem anyway? You bow and cow-tao to Beijing
What a 2-faced sack of turds liar!
(Hu Jintao speaks.)
INTERPRETER: Will you kiss me?
OBAMA: I dont understand.
(Hu Jintao speaks.)
INTERPRETER: I like to be kissed, (shouts) when someone is doing sex to me!
So ... what's Obama's problem if 'Republicans Want to Emulate China'? /S
- Obama, last year's state of the union speech
This from a politician who is practicing Italian/Mussolini model fascism. GOD help this country & please hurry.
The only arguments Obama can win are the ones he creates himself out of thin air—”straw man” arguments. He invents a Republican party that literally wants to do away with all environmental regulations, eliminate the minimum wage, and outlaw labor unions. Then he says “If you don’t vote for me, that’s what those other guys will do.” He wins his own argument with a fictitious opponent every time. It would be less confusing for us all if he got himself a dummy that he could hold in his lap and debate against. Maybe Jeff Dunham could lend him the crabby old man or something. The problem is, it could get confusing as to which one is the dummy.
Actually the Republican party elites don’t have the street cred let alone the intellectual brain power to come up with a coherent response . That is the state of the GOP .
Not me!!! Barry is a liar! I’m a Republican and I want dirty air and water!!! Hrumph! Hrumph!
“Unionization” is commie ‘RATSpeak for being forced into funding the Communist DemocRAT Party. Barry has got to go.
Hey 0bambi, you are a F*%($*’ LIAR. Go back to your Halloween Party and dress as the Queen of Hearts, you f^*^# LIAR.
BTW, kiling babies is sole property of the LIBs.
I'll take that over wanting to make America more like North Korea, raising the minimum wage to a ‘living wage’ of $50.oo/hr, and favoring unions at every turn. Senseable people just want to get rid of air and water rules that don't make sense, but Marxists like the Keynan can't fathom that.
I thought Barky liked the way the Red Chinese ran their country...
Let’s ask Immelt’s and Job’s slave labor force how they feel?
“Obama: Republicans Want to Emulate China, Roll Back Minimum Wage, Prevent Unionization”
I shall parse:
“Republicans Want to Emulate China”
Yep, we want to have a county that puts a priority on actually BUILDING STUFF.
“Roll Back Minimum Wage”
Yep, the Minimum Wage is the single biggest factor in our unemployment rate, and is the single biggest factor as to why so many Illegals work here.
Yep, unless we eliminate unions, our days as a First World country will end...and VERY SOON.
Nice job, Mr. President, you laid out EXACTLY what this country needs to do, to be a superpower. Hopefully the Republicans will follow your advice (although I’m not holding my breath).
