  •  Bipartisan Effort to Ship US Jobs Overseas (10+ / 0-)

    Both parties are responsible for creating the trade and tax advantages US corporations receive for shipping jobs overseas.  

    Sure, Romney and Bain are scum bags, but Obama recently signed trade agreements with Columbia and South Korea that will ship even more US jobs overseas.  Shit, Clinton was the worst with his pushing NAFTA on us.  As that nut Ross Periot said, "That giant sucking sound you hear is American jobs going to Mexico. "  Ross was right.

    The only thing we can say about Romney is that he was in a position to take advantage of government policies designed to ship US jobs overseas that were and still are supported by both parties.  It's great to point out Romney took advantage of US laws, but neither party will lift a finger to change those laws.  Thus, castigating Romney is little more than Kabuki theater.

      reasons why both parties support it.  Who are the major players?  What is the advantage to the USA of these ship jobs overseas policies?

      That's one more thing to add to my long list of small problems. --my son, age 10
