President Obama Meets With Tim Cook and Other CEOs to Discuss Fiscal Crisis

NewImage
President Obama met with corporate leaders including Apple CEO Tim Cook, JPMorgan Chase chief Jamie Dimon, and investor Warren Buffett, and others.
"The president reached out to and spoke with each of these business leaders as a part of his continuing conversations and outreach on the need to find a balanced deficit-reduction solution that protects the middle class and continues to move our economy forward," the White House official said.
It's not particularly surprising that Obama reached out to Cook -- Apple has been one of the most valuable companies in the world for a while now -- but it does show how important Apple has become in recent years.

Obama is such a joke. I still can't believe how ignorant our nation is as a whole to have elected him to a second term.


Ah, you must be one of the 1% who would benefit from a Romney administration.

I'm glad Obama is willing to reach out and learn from others. A great leader can't operate in a vacuum.

I never said I supported Mitt. Please don't put words in my mouth. I'm a libertarian.

That said, Romney would have run the country more like a business instead of a humanitarian society, which is what needs to happen. This made him the better option. He wasn't the optimal candidate, but I think he understood that the government is too big, and doesn't do a good job at running things.

We're on the highway to Greece people. The government isn't the answer. They're the cause.

Tim: Mr. President, we would really love for you to lower the corporate tax rate so we can bring a big chunk of our $100 billion back to the USA.

Obama: No! More taxes! We like to spend spend spend!

Funny how the only time Obama isn't on vacation was during the campaign to get re-elected
