Gov. Haley asks Obama about SC jobs via Twitter

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WCSC) -

As President Barack Obama was preparing for the first ever Twitter National Town Hall meeting Wednesday, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley challenged President Obama with a question of her own.

Haley asked via twitter, "Why is your administration supporting the NLRB's job killing policies in South Carolina? #AskObama"

The National Labor Relations Board alleges that Boeing violated labor laws by opening a new production line for its 787 airplane in South Carolina.

The Twitter Town Hall Meeting is giving Twitter users around the world the chance to ask President Obama any question they would like by using the '#AskObama' hash tag. The president will then select questions and answer them over the social networking web site.

"Boeing is a great corporate citizen in South Carolina, and their growth here has been a win-win for our state," said Haley. "But what we're seeing from this administration - as it stands by while unions try to put themselves in between our companies and employees - is an attack on not just right-to-work states but on every state that is attempting to put their people to work. For months, the people of our state have waited on answers from the president, and they haven't gotten any."

Haley said she hopes her question will be answered at the Twitter Town Hall Meeting.
