No More Secrets

No secrets, at least not for you.
The Obama administration is backing legislation that would require United States businesses to provide to the government data about employee pay as it relates to sex, race and national origin of employees.
It’s not enough that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) already has all your work data. Now other government departments want to snoop deeper into your life. Under the guise of trying to ensure pay equity for women and minorities, Obama wants to have even more of your information.
In addition to giving the Federal government more data to mine about its citizens, this legislation puts more onerous regulations on businesses at a time when businesses need a break. This is further evidence the current administration is no friend to business or the American people.
Even more amazing is this comes from a man who won’t release a valid copy of birth certificate—not a certificate of live birth that anyone could obtain in Hawaii but a real birth certificate that names the delivering physician and can be used as an official document—his passport records or his college transcripts.
No secrets… Obama excepted.
