    If you are supporting slave labor you are supporting communism anyway.

    Cheap foriegn labor is just that "CHEAP".

    Next, GE has tens of thousands of American employees. I take it you would give them a tax break. I would not tax them at all and I would lessen the regulations. You need to explain your program a bit more completely as I am not sure how your program answers my questions.
    I would ask a question .

    Who's GE'S biggest competitor., I would guess foriegn?
    Every American corporation has a foriegn competitor and the foriegn competitors are winning.
    The American workers buy from foriegn corporations cause what has American corporations done for them.
    GE and many more corporations will be caught up in the same, NO JOB NO SALE deal.

    As for GE

    Its biggest competitor is depending on what business unit you are looking at. GE's Medical unit would have its biggest competitors based in the US, along with GE Capital. Its industrail units would see most competition based out of Japan or Korea (with China growing). Its appliance business would see currently its highest competition from the US, for the middle market. I dont think GE has high end appliances like those from Korea or Germany.

    Overall as 50% of GE's renenues are from GE capital, I would say its biggest competitor is American

    Ah, taxes well the American government needs taxes, those that have money and jobs pay taxes those that do not have a job do not, do the math.

    Now you can call the poor people parasites and call the unemploed lazy.
    Bottom line if one does not have money the government can not take money who does that leave?
    If you think the boys in D.C. are going to take a salary cut to get more taxes WELL?

    TV'S at one time the only cometitor was in the U.S.
    Telephones at one time their only competitor was in America

    Woof! That sounds rather dictatorial.

    Oh, so GM and Ford can continue manufacturing cars around the world so long as they don't bring them into the states. Many corporations would not be impacted by that one. Perhaps GM and Ford would for those things that are manufactured in Mexico and Canada.

    Wow! I can see many items that American purchase have their prices go through the roof.

    [QUOTE=presluc;1059766916]Then I would have a profit line for corporations if the profits went below the line they would be backed by the federal government bailout like a golden parachute, we have that anyway might as well make it work for all people.

    Hmmmm. I guess I can spend this hundred million dollars on bonuses and trips for the Executives of the company since the government will bail us out anyway. Great!

    I see some problems and I disagree with your solution, but we both knew that before you typed your first letter. It looks like we will just have to agree to disagree.

    I figured you would disagree.
    Want to check that post again what was the first offer?
    To corporations. you agreed with that check
    the next was to benifit the American worker disagreed with that

    This one really got my attention, I offered a golden parachute to protect American corporations in case their profit line. got in danger
    This we already have and has been used but you disagree with it???check

    Bottom line, The American workers get jobs
    The corporations get lower corporaste tax, less regulations, a higher tax on foriegn products so American consumers would buy more American products, and a golden parachute to be used if their profit line is in danger.

    Even when American corporations get what they want they bitch about it.
    No wander the America consumer is dealing with them less and less.
