Jeffrey Immelt (General Electric Chairman and CEO)

"The people who are part of the business sector, the people in this room, have got to stop complaining about government and get some action underway...There's no excuse today for lack of leadership. The truth is we all need to be part of the solution."

- Lecturing a jobs summit at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Full disclosure (for him, not me), Immelt isn't just the boss at G.E., he's also the chair of President Obama's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness.

Speaking of bosses, it would be nice if Jeffrey's boss would quit scaring the hell out of the business community? You know, the never ending threats to tax them more, placing ridiculous regulations on them, and generally speaking with an anti-business/anti-profit tone...Even better, Obama could call for a do-over on ObamaCare, which has employers scared to death over the future costs they'll incur with every employee they have or bring on.

Back to Immelt. I appreciate his desire to put people back to work, heaven knows our country needs jobs. But, I have a question: How can a guy who runs a multi-billion dollar corporation complain to others about doing what's right for the American people when his multi-billion dollar company didn't pay any taxes in 2010?


You'd think the Left would have a problem with this, and this guy...Since he's part of Team Obama, however, they must be giving him a pass.
