Former Big Labor front-group Treasurer and Obama’s current Labor Secretary Hilda Solis attempted to the play the Washington game of not answering questions while trying to ramble-on long enough to use up the questioner’s time.  At least that is how it appeared yesterday during a congressional hearing, U.S. House Education & Workforce Committee Chairman John Kline and members such as Representatives Kristi Noem, David Roe, Timothy Walberg, Scott DesJarlais, Larry Bucshon, Todd Rokita, and Dennis Ross put several questions to Solis who often provided long, rambling, and nonresponsive answers.

Early on, the National Right to Work Committee exposed Solis’ clear conflicts-of-interest in its Obama Administration Personnel Alert.  

The NRTW Legal Foundation has filed several inquiries and comments with the Labor Department concerning rulemakings that have allowed union officers to hide hundreds of millions of dollars of forced-union dues and potential conflicts-of-interest payments.  In fact, the NRTW Legal Defense Foundation is currently suing the Department for its failure to comply with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
