infrastructure construction, domestic energy r&d, and a serious second look at our trade agreements are all components of what it is going to take to get America back to work. if a manufacturer can import tariff free from a nation with no OSHA and no emissions regulations, that is where the jobs will go. for free access to our markets, global manufacturers should have to observe the same OSHA and emissions requirements that American manufacturers are bound by. otherwise, tariffs should be enacted. in this way, we export humane working conditions and corporate responsibility globally. in my opinion, that's the way to go.
i'll let it slide this time, but for future reference, I only deal in real sources....
sounds like these people got an earful from a few folks about medicare though... ill bet more than a few have carried signs that said " git government out of my medicare!!"
My gut feeling tells me the GOP will not be lifting a finger to advance anything Obama proposes even if it is the best idea in the world. They have sucessfully filibustered and basicly shut the country down from doing just about anything, at every turn. and I see no reason they would actually do their job. Not this close to the election cycle.
It is important for the GOP to keep the nation in a nosedive. They believe that is their ticket to get their party back in power. I believe they are counting on the people to, once again, forget how the GOP got us in this quagmire to begin with as well as forgetting that since the voters gave the GOP a bump, last election, things have only gotten worse.
They may be right.
