    I just hope he can put some action behind his words this time.

    "U.S. Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-St. Mary's, told the crowd at the annual Anne Arundel Jefferson-Jackson Dinner that Democrats should embrace a new theme of "Make it in America."

    The motto doesn't just mean individual success -it means making goods in America to create jobs and boost the economy, Hoyer said."

    Yeah , I just wish some of the 1%ers would help.

    They seem bound and determined to not help the American people by creating jobs.

    It's all about incentive. If they're forced to pay import tariffs on whatever they pay workers in India and China to do, they'll start bringing jobs back to the states.

    Good luck trying to "Make It in America" under Democrat rule with liberal policies.

    An all Democrat Congress and President have brought us the worst economy since the Great Depression.

    As long as there are unions making extreme pay and benefit demands, the jobs will continue to flow overseas. Simple as that.

    I love the idea but question how he thinks its going to go down there are many reasons why those business left this nation and are continuing to leave.

    The question is you talk of incentives well many of those incentives are not going to be an incentive unless there is a way of lowering the cost of doing business in this nation everything from Taxes to asinine regulatory practices.

    Just how much of a roll back do you think the left will allow.

    We will be able to compete with third world countries when we become one ourselves.

    Those will have to be some hefty import tariffs to make up the difference between the average Chinese workers pay and that of Americans.

    Why shouldn't foreign countries pay to allow them to sell in a market that we have created?
