One piece of paper just turned Barack Obama’s world upside down

Barack Obama continues to suffer one massive defeat after another.

Since leaving office, everything he put in place is crumbling around him.

And this one piece of paper turned Barack Obama’s world upside down.

While in office, Obama did everything in his power to strangle the American economy.

One example was his Labor Department tightening the rules on “gig economy” employers like Uber – the most popular ride sharing service in America.

The Obama administration wanted to force all these workers into unions, so they worked to classify them as “employees” instead of “contractors” to eliminate the economic competition to unionized taxi drivers.

But the Trump administration ended this assault on economic liberty.

The Department of Labor issued a letter relaxing the Obama-era restrictions on “gig economy” workers being classified as contractors.

The Daily Caller reports:

“An important role of the U.S. Department of Labor is to ensure that employers who want to do the right thing have clear compliance assistance,” DOL Wage and Hour Division acting Administrator Keith Sonderling said in a statement. “Today, the U.S. Department of Labor offers further insight into the nexus of current labor law and innovations in the job market.”

The opinion letter represents a shift from the apparent stance of former President Barack Obama’s administration. The DOL under Obama stated that the service providers in companies such as Uber and Lyft are likely misclassified and should be considered employees, according to The New York Times.

“It is outrageous for the Department of Labor to set policy in such an important area through the device of an opinion letter,” David Weil, who ran the Wage and Hour Division under Obama, told TheNYT. “The Obama administration discontinued opinion letters precisely because they are a capricious tool for settling complicated regulatory questions.”

Taxi drivers are unionized employees.

Their forced dues fund the Democrat Party political machine.

If companies like Uber and Lyft can offer a better service at a lower price, then taxi cab companies will go out of business.

That will deprive the Democrats of millions of dollars in forced union dues and political contributions.

  3. ISN’T GREAT THAT THE DumbocRATS have the AMERICAN PEOPLE’S INTEREST AT HEART, RIGHT AFTER THEY LINE THEIR POCKETS. IF by some small quirk of fate the DumbocRATS do pull off the 2020 election they will flees the Federal Government, just like they did with the Russian nuclear deal. President Trump should appoint a SPECIAL PROSECUTOR TO INVESTIGATE THE PAST 12 YEARS OF THE DUMBOCRATS INCLUDING THE PAST MUDLLER WHICH HUNT.

  4. After suffering through 8 years of this unvetted phony, the one piece of paper I want to see is the one that will be the one that has his indictment one it!

  5. They named a highway for him in Illinois, I hated that man with a passion. He tore our Country down, Ruined the American Dream, send Our Jobs to other Countries sent Our hard earned Money to the Muslims. He needs to be arrested for Treason & put under the Prison, along with those 3 Muslims in Congress they hate us so much lets help them pack & send them out of Our Country. They don’t belong here.

  6. If I see Obama grinning like a fool and walking by, I’m gonna drop him down fast after I booted his nuts. And then take a selfie of him howling in pain and me grinning with a thumb-up. Yep.

  7. You want to see how much better Uber is than taxis, go to Mexico City. Make sure you have the app. All the Uber cars I rode in were new. I spent 3 days there. Uber was quick to respond. I guess I spent about 2500 pesos about $5 the whole 3 days. Some times we were 20 miles from destination to destination. I happened to hail a cab one evening to go to the mall about 1.5 miles it cost like $5 each way. The cabs were beat up and ran terribly, it was hard to breathe from the leaky exhaust. My point here is Uber was a decent way of life for Mexicans, the drivers were polite and very clean. They were proud to do what they did. They were independent contractors.

  9. Instead of investigating President Trump and his family’s tax returns and finances; our FBI should be investigating the billions of tax payer money socked away by Obamas in Kenya, and the Clintons in the Bahamas. They increased our National Debt by 10 Trillion Dollars, and it wasn’t spent on rebuilding our Military, Education, or Infrastructure; so where did all that money go?

    • Here is an example of how Obama scr^%ed seniors. By law there is a COLA for Social Security payouts. This is cumulative so what seniors get today is based on the results of COLAS 10 year ago or more. For the years 2015,2010 and 2009 the COLA was 0%. Other years were low except for 2011 where it was 3.6% For his 8 years his average COLA was 1.1% for social security. Trumps is 2.4% for his two years. GW Bush had an average of 3.03% for his 8 years. Clinton had 2.53% for his 8 years. Most earlier resident had higher COLAs. We probably need an emergency COLA increase to help recover from Obama. What he did for COLA does not seem to be within the consumer price index formula for COLAs.

    • I am not glad he is gone, I would like to see him hang for treason right here in the U.S. and michael right beside him.

    • My sentiments exactly; however, I still have that nagging feeling that he’s doing evil as we speak. By the way, California is naming one of their highways after him! What a joke!

    • Keep spreading the truth! Obama is truly best at only one thing. Lying, period!
      The truth always comes out in the end, always. Osuka belongs in GITMO, along with
      killary, her felonias aho_e mate. joe blow the chronic lying looser, Max h2o phonyfelon and the sick baby killers at dunce headquarters, and the rest of the
      swamp. GITMO bound for life, and the rest of the swamp dweller clan of sickos!

  10. the Democrats are working hard to take it away starting with our right to defend ourselves and now they are trying in some of the blue states they are trying to keep his name off the ballot unless he releases his tax records that there is no law requiring him to do so it’s just they want to know something that is none of there business because unlike all other presidents Trump is an independent businessman but Obama hid his entire past what is worse Trump hiding private business or Obama hiding his identity

    • Outstanding thought, we still don’t really know if Obama was a fraud, born in Kenya. We know he acquired student loans as a foreign student that’s uncontested so was he a foreign student? Seems all the investigations into Trump spending over 25 million coming up with nothing. Obama spent millions in making sure his history was well buried and for some reason does not seem to warrant but a yawn from Democrats although that should indeed be investigated because was he legally able to run. How did the Democrats allow a junior Senator who didn’t do anything in the Senate to run for President? This could be the largest scandal in the history of our country and one that should not be taken lightly. Turn over all your records from college, did you actually attend school or was George Soros responsible for fronting the money in a scheme to plant Obama into the highest office in our country.

  11. Obama was the kinkiest president we have ever had. He lied over and over again. and figure it out ways not just for the Democratic machine but ways for him to steal money and believe me he stole a lot of taxpayer money. I have no respect for him nor his wife, who kind of reminds me of a creature that’s good with sign language.

  12. The way that unions act they should be drummed out of business! First of all they grab people’s money to enrich themselves and give nothing back to the union member. Second they set the union pensions so high that none of the union pensions are viable! Third they only give to demonrats and their causes! It’s time to end the unions!!! One thing that’s good is that the Supreme Court decided that they can’t force dues from non-union members!!! Less money for the demonrats!! Hurray!!!!!!!

    • When unions started they helped workers get decent wages and benefits. companies like steel, trucking, etc. took advantage of the workers, and it took money to run the unions. That is why there are dews. Now not so much for some unions. The construction union was good for the workers and still is. Their pay was well above non-union construction workers, but they had a four-year apprenticeship program and the men were all well trained. They have good benefits, vacation account, pension. Now every non-union company has all Mexicans who can’t speak English.

  13. Freedom does give one the rights to abuse it but the privileged to give supportive logical to make the country’ united rather than chaos from corruptive lies and fake news…freedom is not cheap and if one honors their freedom and liberty; guard it honorably
