BUSH USED F-16 SALE TO PLAY POLITICS WITH WORKERS' JOBS, ACCORDING TO IAM

 BUSH USED F-16 SALE TO PLAY POLITICS WITH WORKERS' JOBS,
 ACCORDING TO IAM
 UPPER MARLBORO, Md., Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The following statement was released today by the Communications Department of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) on behalf of IAM President George J. Kourpias, who is recuperating from surgery:
 While the IAM welcomes the administration's approval of the sale of F-16 fighter jets to Taiwan, Bush acted terribly late in the game, and suspiciously close to election day.
 For 11 years, the Bush-Reagan administration blocked this sale. Bush's opposition caused severe, long-lasting economic and social damage to thousands of working families in Texas, California, Florida, and dozens of other states.
 Once the polls showed Bush was in trouble, he reversed himself, and is trying to pose as a compassionate savior. This is the kind of cynical flip-flopping the American people have come to expect from Bush, and this is the reason that voters everywhere are rejecting him.
 The IAM represents thousands of workers at General Dynamics Corp. in Ft. Worth, Texas, and throughout the United States. The IAM has for years actively worked on behalf of the recently-approved sale of F-16 fighter jets to Taiwan.
