So, does anyone want to play the "guess this initiative" game? The folks have some sort of plan in mind, right? What could it be? Is it associated with the meeting tomorrow with small business owners? If so, in what way is it associated? What kind of deal are they putting together that would (1) benefit the Unions and (2) could be promoted as "benefiting small business owners" at the same time? Course the Obama admin's idea of what benefits the private sector is far different than what most of us would consider. Are they thinking expansion of affirmative action (minorities) with Union strings attached? Hiring quotas on business owners? Tax cuts for those who comply? Heavy penalties for those who do not?

President Obama is scheduled to meet with labor and progressive leaders today at the White House to discuss the fiscal cliff and overall economic strategy moving into his second term. The meeting will take place behind closed doors and the press isn't invited. Exactly who will be there?
