On this latish news story about 0bamas business friends?
Business Forward, an association formed in 2009 to advance President
Barack Obama’s economic agenda, has spent plenty of time with White
House officials during the fiscal cliff imbroglio.
Thursday the group is holding the last of seven briefings with top Obama administration officials about budget issues, The Hill reports.
Business Forward’s members include AT&T, Facebook, Lockheed Martin, McDonald’s, Verizon, and Wal-Mart.
“When you’re an ally of the president, you can often bring in as many
people into the White House as you want,” Jade West, senior vice
president of government relations for the National Association of
Wholesaler-Distributors, told The Hill.
“Business Forward is a political organization founded to support the
Obama administration. So the fact they can bring people in to see the
president and his people is neither a surprise nor terribly impressive.”
