    Hard to compete with slave labor. But yeah, tax cuts, credits, bail outs, everything but the kitchen sink; no jobs for Americans though. I bet it's the Union's fault.

    This is why I am against outsourcing. Free trade just allows everyone to trade jobs and manufacturing to China.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    How could it be anything else? Maybe if we paid them to stay here? And provided some slave labor of our own?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Ha! Now GE can infringe upon it's own copyrights and make their own GE counterfeit knock-offs.

    Proof there's more to economics the current recession than taxes and government action, whoever says its only because we have such high taxes needs this as a reality check.

    And people wonder why there no jobs to be had in America anymore. Corporate America is flushing our future down the drain.

    Wasn't/Isn't G.E.’s chief executive, Jeffrey Immelt, the chairman of the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness? I guess he's getting out before he has to start paying taxes. This should be great for the 2012 campaign. Even paying no taxes could keep Obama's business buddy from moving business interests to China.

    GE's slogan should read: Progress to China is our most important product.

    Well I don't think Obama is anymore interested in American jobs than Bush was. They all wanna protect their big corporate buddies out there.
