OHIO VOTER ALERT - Fox News Reports on Delphi Pension Scandal - Ohio Retirees Directly Affected

For a little over two months now, TexasGOPVote.com has been reporting about the Delphi Salaried Retirees Pensions that were stolen by the Obama Administration as a payback to the unions in order to force the GM Bankruptcy to move forward in its blazingly fast 44 day bankruptcy. It is nice to see that Fox News Channel is now catching up with us and letting Ohio voters know about this issue that directly affects retirees who live and worked in Ohio (VIDEO BELOW). NOTE: This issue also affects retirees in many other states including Michigan, Indiana, New York, Wisconsin and even Texas!
I first wrote about this scandal on August 28th in an article titled, A Lawless Presidency - Part 1 - Obama Administration Rips-off Non-Union Delphi Pensions While Preserving Union. In this article, I revealed a video put together by WhyMrPresidentWhy.com that tells the story of these people, who if you live and vote in Ohio, Michigan and a few other states, are your friends and neighbors.
As I looked into this story further, I went to Washington D.C. to talk directly with some of the lawmakers who are representing these Ohio and Indiana voters. I spoke with Representatives Mike Turner (R-OH) and Dan Burton (R-IN).
Burton told me, " First of all, the people that worked at Delphi that weren't union workers, they really got shafted, and I feel a great deal of concern about them and their quality of life because things they depended on their whole lives has been diminished dramatically, some of them just aren't getting anything, and so I think the decisions by the court regarding that case was just wrong."
Burton continued, "Well, you know this Administration and the Secretary and the Treasury and the Fed, they have just done things that I think are unforgivable, and one of the things that they have done is showing support for supporters of the president like union workers and to the detriment of the people who are white collar workers, and I just think that's wrong."
Following is my interview with Mike Turner. He provides the best insight I have seen into this matter by any public official. As a member of the House oversight committee, Turner has taken the lead on Congressional investigation of this matter. Thousands of his constituents are directly affected by this matter.
This interview with Turner was later picked up by The Washington Times 24-7 news site.
Late last week, Fox News Channel's Megyn Kelly gave this issue its first national television news coverage with two reports. Those videos are below for your convenience.
The Delphi Salaried Pension scandal is being covered-up as strongly as Fast and Furious and the tragedy in Benghazi. This Lawless Presidency will be held accountable to the American people for their mistakes. We will have to give them our answer on November 6th.
I encourage everyone in Ohio to come out and send a message. Tell Obama you are not going to let him steal from your neighbors who worked their entire lives for their pensions so that he can payback his friends at the unions. Tell Democrats they have gone too far to the left by sending a message by voting a straight Republican ticket. Send Josh Mandel to the U.S. Senate and help create a majority Republican Senate and retire dingy Senator Harry Reid as Majority Leader. Send Congressman Mike Turner back to Washington along with as many other Republican Congressmen as you can. These Republican leaders have been fighting hard for the people of Ohio and deserve your support.
Vote Early! Vote Republican!
