January 4, 2012

(WASHINGTON)—Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) today released the following statement regarding President Obama's decision to make "recess appointments" to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB):

"As President Obama gets closer to the election, he seems more and more willing to take highly controversial actions that put the interests of union bosses ahead of job creators and workers.

"These appointments underscore the importance of the Oversight Committee's ongoing investigation as the only real check on NLRB's misuse of its authority to assist key political allies of this Administration."
