Obama Lives Up to His Word
01 Apr 2009
Fulfilling his campaign promises, President Obama today signed the “Job Repatriation Act”, imposing tax penalties upon corporations that outsource U.S. jobs overseas.
WASHINGTON D.C. - Fulfilling his campaign promises, President Obama today signed the “Job Repatriation Act”, imposing tax penalties upon corporations that outsource U.S. jobs overseas. An overjoyed Wall Street responded by sending the DOW up 500 points and US corporate leaders pledged their support for the American worker. This was just one in a string of inspiring steps undertaken by the Obama Administration, reaffirming that his administration would be the change Americans were looking for when then put him in office last November.

Earlier in the day, President Obama instructed Attorney General Eric Holder to begin an investigation into war crimes committed by former president George Bush and his administration. Mr. Bush's passport was pulled by the Department of State to make it more difficult for Mr. Bush to flee the country should the Attorney General decide to press charges. Similar steps were taken to ensure that John Woo, Former Attorney Generals John Ashcroft and Alberto Gonzales, former vice president Dick Cheney, and other former officials were unlikely to flee. On the war front, President Obama began pulling U.S. Troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Rumors within the Administration claim that President Obama's next move will be to legalize drugs in the hope of decreasing drug related violence and increasing tax revenues. A poll taken today, April Fools Day, shows that Americans are convinced that President Obama is a man of his word.
