    Senate candidate proud of outsourcing job record

    Perdue ‘proud’ of outsourcing past

    “Defend it? I’m proud of it,” he said in a press stop at The White House restaurant in Buckhead. “This is a part of American business, part of any business. Outsourcing is the procurement of products and services to help your business run. People do that all day.”

    Cue all the right wingers who complain about how corporate tax rates force corps to ship their corporate offices overseas to come and defend Perdue's record of outsourcing jobs

    Well certainly an interesting response. Cant talk it away so maybe its worth a shot but the execution was poor.
    Dont think he will care for the consequences.

    I don't understand why people get upset at outsourcing. It's just simple economics and business.

    Business can do whatever they want. However, when a individual running for a government position is proud of sending jobs over seas, then I have to question his motivation.

    The problem is big corporations taking advantage of all the benefits that come with setting up business in the US while shipping jobs overseas.

    From the article:

    “I think the issue that people get confused about is the loss of jobs,” he said. “This is because of bad government policies: tax policy, regulation, even compliance requirements. It puts us at a competitive disadvantage with the rest of the world. Even today, right now this administration has policies going on that are decimating industries today.”

    Cant argue with that. The purpose, liberals, of a company is to make money. Bad government policies like the ones he mentioned for business to do things that they would not otherwise do--like outsourcing. But rather than blame the cause (government) they blame the effect (corporate outsourcing)

    Why would anybody be proud of shipping jobs out of their country? How does that help me vote for him? This is just a dumb statement he made.

    There are benefits to doing business in the US that is for sure. But you cant ignore the negative aspects here. A business will do what it can to maximize profits. If regulations make it far less expensive to outsource some of their business, then how can you blame them?
