trillions held by American companies? Mexico's newly elected president might be softer on the drug cartels because they can't control the violence.. Will Mexico go soft on cartels? (OneNewsNow.com) so why doesn't Obama go soft on the literally trillions of already TAXED money held offshore? I mean the USA is NOT getting any benefits NOW so why not bring it back tax free? Obama wants to generate jobs... and today's disappointing job report should if Obama was not so anti-business encourage companies to bring back these trillions! If half of the $1 trillion or $500 billion used to hire at $40,000/job is 12.5 million jobs! Unemployment solved!
