I want a seat at the table

There will be a job summit tomorrow with President Obama. I got the time, perhaps I should go tomorrow.

So how much exactly is it for a seat at President Obama's table?

Then I read this:

Anna Burger of Change to Win, who is invited to attend Thursday's White House job summit, is secretary treasurer of Service Employees International Union Committee on Political Education or SEIU COPE, a political action committee that gave $29,442,016 to Obama between February 2008 and September 2009

$29 million! I cannot afford that much. How does 20 bucks sound?

Read the rest of the article here:

A large number of union executives and academics who were heavy donors to President Obama's 2008 campaign will be at the table for his White House jobs summit Thursday.

But few big Obama donors are among the top corporate executives on the list -- and they are the ones who will bear the burden of creating the jobs that are needed to bring down the staggering unemployment rate.

And the Chamber of Commerce, with whom the Obama administration has battled over health care and climate change policies, and the National Federation of Independent Business confirmed to Fox News on Wednesday that they were not invited to attend the forum on expanding job creation.
