Starbucks boss speaks out on politics
July 2, 2012 - Burt Angeli
Howard Schultz, the former Northern Michigan University football player who made billions running Starbucks, offered his political views in Las Vegas.
The Starbucks chairman, president and CEO has been speaking out about his lack of faith in American politicians, and his efforts to affect change, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. He's called for other leaders to suspend financial contributions to incumbent politicians until they "put Americans first."
"This is a time where I just can't be a bystander," Schultz said.
The debt ceiling debate, noted the Review-Journal, upset Schultz.
"I was profoundly disappointed. Their inability to lead caused doubt and a lack of confidence in the ability of America to solve its problems," Schultz said. "Whether Democrat, Republican or Independent, we don't seem to have a voice."
