Obama bribes defense contractors to delay layoff notices until after the November election

Senator Lindsey Graham calls Obama’s move “patently illegal”: Notices under the federal WARN Act are required 60 days before layoffs occur, and “The Obama administration issued guidance Friday that said defense firms’ costs would be covered if they have to layoff workers due to canceled contracts under the across-the-board cuts set to take effect Jan. 2.” In other words, Obama is bribing defense contractors to violate federal law by delaying layoff notices, so that the notices don’t get sent out 4 days before the November election.
