Tell the Board of Directors at GE to give back the taxpayer's money.

General Electric is 'Winning the Future'

General Electric reported that its first-quarter earnings have increased by 77 percent compared to the fourth-quarter of 2010.  This comes as the New York Times reported that GE paid zilch on their taxes, while raking in over $14 billion in profits in 2010.  Even worse, GE actually received $3.2 billion in tax benefits.

Key Vote YES on Rooney's CR Amendment No. 2 to End Funding For Second Engine in F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Program

Dear Representative, On behalf of over a million FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote YES on Rep. Rooney’s (R-Fla.) amendment to H.R. 1 the Full Year Continuing Appropriation Act that would end funding for the second engine in the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Program. For nearly a decade, the Air Force has considered the extra engine to be “not necessary and not affordable.” Both President Obama and former President Bush pushed to eliminate taxpayer funding of the alternate engine that burdens both taxpayers and the military.

Rent Seeking General Electric to Head Obama’s “Jobs” Council

On Friday, President Obama signed an executive order to establish the “Council on Jobs and Competitiveness” led by General Electric’s (GE) CEO Jeffrey Immelt. President Obama and Immelt released statements claiming that the new council would “put our economy into overdrive.” To those paying attention to their relationship, it should come as no surprise that Immelt was selected as chairman. The Obama administration and GE have had a disturbingly close relationship for the past two years.
