I think we just found one way Obama will preserve jobs

Mandate it

On Friday, Obama issued an executive order that requires all new contractors who win a service contract to include a clause that requires them to give the right of first refusal to the workers under the prior contract. The new contractor cannot hire anyone new until the right of first refusal has been been provided. Why the hell would anyone bid on a new contract if the new company isn't allowed to bring in its own employees?

And of course there's an exemption provision, of course there is. I see no situations in which the director of an agency would possibly decide that, nope, this won't apply to this contract. None at all!

Worst.  End of Civilization.  Ever.
