Rep Kathy Hochul Demands Documents from Treasury Secretary Geithner

Kathy Hochul Tim Geithner

Congresswoman Kathy Hochul (NY) supported Delphi salaried retirees again with another demand to Treasury Secretary Geithner:

"I urge you to comply with requests for full disclosure of records related to these benefits. Three years later, questions persist surrounding decisions that resulted in the termination of pensions for Delphi salaried retirees. In the interest of restoring faith and confidence in our government, I implore you to make public all documentation regarding the treatment of pensions for these workers."

Rep. Hochul letter

President Obama, Please Give Delphi Workers a Fair Shake

Weekly Column from U.S. Senator Rob Portman (OH)

Every American is supposed to get a fair shake from the federal government. The government works for us, after all. Every citizen should be treated fairly without regard to associations, connections, status or political party. ~ Sadly, however, the shadow of unfair treatment hangs over what happened to the hard-working salaried retirees of the auto parts company Delphi as part of the bailout of its former parent General Motors. And the White House is doing nothing to help, not even letting them know what really happened -- and why.  Sen. Rob Portman's weekly column

Chairman Camp Demands Delphi Pension Documents from Treasury and White House

Obama Administration Should Honor Its Pledge to be Open and Transparent

2012-10-04 | Washington, DC

Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) called on the White House and the Department of Treasury to turn over all records associated with the decision to top off pensions for Delphi’s union beneficiaries while terminating its non-union pensions without additional funding. Camp made the request after the White House and Treasury were caught withholding documents from Congress. In giving until October 12 to turn over all materials, Camp reminded the Administration that the President had once promised to run the most “transparent and open” Administration ever.   Chair Camp release | Letter to Treasury-Geither | Letter to White House-Ruemmler | IBD Editorial: White House Punishes Adversaries, Pays Off Friends | Frank Beckman WJR Detroit with Dave Camp (audio)
