Truckin’: Paul Ryan & GOPe increase H2B Visas 400% for Truck Driver jobs after GOPe funds NAFTA Superhighway between Mexico US & Canada

You rubes didn’t think all that transcontintental commerce was going to give YOU jobs did you?

‘course not. Say hello to the latest wave of work visas- H2Bs for Truck Drivers.

…“The more than 2,000 page year-end funding bill contains a dramatic change to federal immigration law that would increase by as much as four-fold the number of low-wage foreign workers provided to employers under the controversial H-2B visa programme, beyond what is currently allowed,” said Senator Jeff Sessions.

Sessions said that the H-2B visas will soar from 66,000 to 250,000 because of the language in the deal.

These foreign workers are brought in exclusively to fill blue collar non-farm jobs in hotels, restaurants, construction, truck driving and many other occupations sought by millions of Americans, he said….

There is only 1 job they won’t outsource or replace with visas, their own.

What do you do for $:Fed reveals partial data on emergency lending facilities, still mum on discount window

Update: Well, it would appear absolutely EVERYONE got a bailout except the middle class. And I do mean everyone.

Zero Hedge breaks down the 35 foreign banks that the Fed bailed out here.

…$1.27 trillion in agency MBS was traded by foreign banks…

led by the $410 billion by German-based Deutsche Bank ..

…the $382 billion by the Switzerland-based Credit Suisse.

Other highlights of the disclosure include that GE among other commercial endeavors got $ from the Fed, and that the Fed has essentially been taking all the polluted assets from everyone with a pulse (again, except for the US middle class consumer/homeowner who has been lectured about ‘moral hazard’ and whose house has been foreclosed upon):

.the Federal Reserve purchased $1.25 trillion in agency MBS from all participating banks.

Goldman Sachs borrowed 84 times from Fed’s dealer facility (PDCF) from Sept. 15 to 11/26/08 for amounts ranging from $100m to $8b

Bank of America borrowed 118 times from the PDCF from Sept 18 2008 to May 2009, in amount ranging from $375 million to $11 billion.

And even CA Pension funds got in on the bail out action, per ZeroHedge:

Looking at the TALF data, we see that the biggest borrower by subscription is Calpers, with a total of about $5.4 billion

WSJ:

…The data released Wednesday include short-term liquidity moves for financial institutions and companies made as part of the Fed’s traditional role as lender of last resort, liquidity injections directly to borrowers and investors in key credit markets and financial support for Bear Stearns Cos. and American International Group Inc. (See all the data from the Fed)

Fed officials reported details on more than 21,000 transactions from December 2007 to July 2010. The emergency programs caused the size of the Fed’s balance sheet to swell. (See a history of the Fed’s lending)…

Update: CNBC

…The high court rejected a request from Indiana pension funds and other opponents of the sale to delay the deal while they challenge Chrysler’s sale to a group led by Fiat, a union-aligned trust and the U.S. and Canadian governments…

The Court did not have 4 Justices who felt the Indiana Pension funds had standing or claim to challenge the sale Phil LeBeau is reporting now..ergo the stay is lifted..Gee if only the Senior Secured Bondholders had COJONES and had filed, I am looking at you Perrella Weinberg….
