    Anyone else find it interesting that Edwards' kept bitching last night that Bush/Cheney want to outsource American jobs, but yet he's all for outsourcing the rebuilding efforts in Iraq to foriegn companies?

    I mean, that's not exactly the type of outsourcing he's trying to prevent. Outsourcing those jobs would bring money and man power to the table and save money for the U.S. gov't and save U.S. troops' lives. I don't think its a fair analogy.

    Also in terms of wanting to outsource our drug purchasing to Canada-- that would save huge amounts of money for lots and lots of people. And, in point of fact, in the 2000 presidential debates Bush pledged to allow seniors to purchase their prescription drugs through Canada. But then he fli--er, changed his mind.

    Allowing companies to out-source...allowing them tax breaks - makes money for companies...for people. A poor man never gave anyone a job.

    hold on a second NE, If we want the canadian drug market opened up because we want a 'free market' then there can be no griping about outsourcing the jobs to other countries for the same 'free market'.

    I don't follow this. Are you saying outsourcing is a good thing? Because right now there are benefits for companies that outsource.

    I'm saying allowing business to regulate business is best. There are advantages to having companies lower their production costs by outsorucing.
