The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National of Federation of Independent Business - both of which have been critical of Obama's proposed health care overhaul - not invited to participate in jobs summit despite small business being responsible for 3 out of every 4 jobs created - crooked union chiefs are however on the menu at the White House! White House Skips Chamber of Commerce, Business Federation Invites to Jobs Forum Eve Zibel - FOXNews.com http://www.foxnews.com/politics/200...erce-business-federation-invites-jobs-summit/ WASHINGTON -- President Obama is hosting a jobs summit at the White House on Thursday, inviting corporate CEOs and union chiefs to participate in a forum on accelerating job creation, but two major business groups have been left of the guest list. Both the United States Chamber of Commerce and the National Federation of Independent Business were not invited to share their ideas at the event featuring 133 guests. Both groups oppose the cap and trade climate change legislation on Capitol Hill as well as the Democrats' health care reform proposals, which led to a public dispute between the USCC and the administration earlier this fall. ~ Gingrich Offers Alternate Jobs Summit CBS News - December 2, 2009 12:36 PM http://www.cbsnews.com/blogs/2009/12/02/politics/politicalhotsheet/entry5864954.shtml Feeling snubbed by President Obama's planned jobs forum at the White House tomorrow, some conservatives are launching a jobs forum of their own. Former House Speaker and potential 2012 Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has announced he is launching a "Real Jobs Summit." The first stop is in Ohio, a potential swing state with an unemployment rate of 10.5 percent. "After 10 months and the authorization of $787 billion in government spending, the economic policies of the White House and the Democratic Congress have failed." Gingrich wrote on his Web site. Gingrich said he seeks to spur entrepreneurship and small businesses by lowering taxes, interest rates and debt.
