Wouldn’t it be nice to be a laid-off auto worker or an outsourced, unemployed Disney worker to have Uncle Sam ferry you to billionaireville (that’s Davos to us) for a Swiss skiing holiday and a chance to job-hunt among 1,500 of the world’s top CEOs.
That’s what the political class, particularly from the White House, is perking itself with these days as a whole lot of them, with questionable official reasons to be there, suddenly descend on the Swiss ski resort to talk green energy, global governance, synergies, convergences and other trendy hip topics popular with the jet-set[…]
So who are these freeloading so-called job hunters attending the World Economic Forum in Davos on the taxpayer dime?
The U.S. delegation consists of:
Vice-President Joe Biden, Jill Biden
John Kerry, Secretary of State
Ashton Carter, Secretary of Defense
Sylvia Mathews Burwell, Secretary of Health and Human Services
Michael Froman, US Trade Representative
Jacob Lew, Secretary of the Treasury
Penny Pritzker, Secretary of Commerce
Loretta Lynch, US Attorney-General
Gayle Smith, Adminisration of USAID
Gregory Abbott, Governor of Texas
John Hickenlooper, Governor of Colorado
Gina Raimondo, Governor of Rhode Island
All of the above in addition to five U. S. senators and eight congressmen, among them Kevin McCarthy, Congress Majority Leader will be skiing and hobnobbing with global elitists courtesy of the American taxpayer.
