Wouldn’t it be nice to be a laid-off auto worker or an outsourced, unemployed Disney worker to have Uncle Sam ferry you to billionaireville (that’s Davos to us) for a Swiss skiing holiday and a chance to job-hunt among 1,500 of the world’s top CEOs.

That’s what the political class, particularly from the White House, is perking itself with these days as a whole lot of them, with questionable official reasons to be there, suddenly descend on the Swiss ski resort to talk green energy, global governance, synergies, convergences and other trendy hip topics popular with the jet-set[…]

So who are these freeloading so-called job hunters attending the World Economic Forum in Davos on the taxpayer dime?

The U.S. delegation consists of:

Vice-President Joe Biden, Jill Biden

John Kerry, Secretary of State

Ashton Carter, Secretary of Defense

Sylvia Mathews Burwell, Secretary of Health and Human Services

Michael Froman, US Trade Representative

Jacob Lew, Secretary of the Treasury

Penny Pritzker, Secretary of Commerce

Loretta Lynch, US Attorney-General

Gayle Smith, Adminisration of USAID

Gregory Abbott, Governor of Texas

John Hickenlooper, Governor of Colorado

Gina Raimondo, Governor of Rhode Island

All of the above in addition to five U. S. senators and eight congressmen, among them Kevin McCarthy, Congress Majority Leader will be skiing and hobnobbing with global elitists courtesy of the American taxpayer.
