Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's home district includes San Francisco.
Star-Kist Tuna's headquarters are in San Francisco, Pelosi's home
Star-Kist is owned by Del Monte Foods.
Star-Kist is a major contributor to Pelosi.
Star-Kist is the major employer in American Samoa employing 75% of the
Samoan work force.
In January, 2007 when the minimum wage was increased from $5.15 to $7.25,
Pelosi had American Samoa exempted from the increase. Result: Del Monte\Star-Kist would not have to pay the higher wage. This makes Del Monte products less
expensive than their competition's.
Last week when the huge bailout bill was passed, Pelosi added an earmark to
the final bill adding $33 million dollars for an economic development
credit in American Samoa.
If Obama wants to stop pork and corruption, I'd suggest he call Nancy's office and schedule a meeting. He might open with the words "Sooo-eeee pig".
I'm sure NP supports the minimum wage, except when she and her supporters benefit from opposing it. I'm sure she decries pork projects.
I'm sure she should have plastic surgery to remove the two face.
