Rep. Kucinich: Immelt should resign from Obama's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) is calling for General Electric's CEO and Chairman Jeffrey Immelt to resign as head of President Obama's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness because, according to reports, GE is sending advanced technology to China.

Rep. Kucinich says GE's selling advanced technology to China was designed to help the company's bottom line and will also help create jobs in China, instead of in the United States.

In an August 24th press release, Rep. Kucinich said, "If he does not resign, the White House should remove him."

Rep. Kucinich talks to American Morning about his call for Immelt to step aside.
