    You gotta wonder when this crowd is going to get the idea that everything they think is wrong. Every policy they enact will have the opposite effect. "Cap n tax" will result in more carbon in the air, not less. And this POS legislation to stop companies from moving out of the U.S. will have the precise opposite effect.
    Now we'll hear from those who cannot think beyond Stage One that the Dems are for keeping jobs here and the GOP for sending them off shore. Countdown.....

    I have an idea...

    These fucking greedy and lazy Americans 'workers' should be willing to work for $2.46 a day. Indonesian workers do.

    If that doesn't work, then these America slugs should lower their greed-filled demands to $1.75 a day. Chinese workers are happy to make that.

    AND, If that doesn't work, then these America money pigs should lower their greed-filled demands $1.60 a day. Vietnamese worker would kill for China's rates.

    It just shows that America will NEVER compete for jobs. Maybe if we send Rabbit brain and his Monica Lewinskys for the rich over to lick their assholes, we can save the poor babies from investing corporate expenditures on toilet paper.

    Can't comment intelligently on the post so you write stupidity. Why am I not surprised?

    if everyone was poorer we'd be so much richer!

    Do the people opposing this have any idea what's in it? Is it a bad idea to quit providing subsidies for people to shut down plants and move them overseas? Or should we continue to give tax breaks to people for closing a site here and moving it to Bangladesh?

    Is it wrong to reduce the tax burden for those that hire American workers over foreign ones?

    Lower wages mean lower cost of doing business and lower products. It means people can afford more labor for more projects so people will be employed. Teens will be able to get experience working as well.

    If it wasnt so devastating to so many people. It would be amusing. Politicians creating a problem by artificially raising costs, which of course artificially raises prices. Then they feign outrage to discover that things are getting worse and pledge to "fix" that with more stupid solutions that caused the problems to begin with.

    And no one bothers to think about this.
