Jarrett ignores questions on terminated non-union Delphi pensions

” Emails The DC obtained and first published on Tuesday show senior White House and Treasury officials were behind the termination of
pensions for 20,000 non-union Delphi salaried retirees.

  Those emails show that the Treasury.Department, led by Secretary Timothy Geithner,
was the driving force behind terminating those pensions — a move made in 2009 while the
Obama administration implemented its auto bailout plan. The emails contradict sworn
testimony in which several Obama
administration figures have consistently said that the decision to terminate the pensions came
from the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC). The PBGC is a federal agency that handles private sector pension benefits issues. Its charter calls for independent representation of pension beneficiaries’ interests.”
