    We don't benefit when a job is shipped to India.

    Why was the first tax rebate stimulus package not very effective? One reason is if the consumer goes out and buys a dishwasher, that dishwasher wasn't made here anymore. There was no U.S. worker hired due to an increase in demand. You can say the same if they bought a computer (if you call Dell, you don't get someone in the U.S. anymore).

    We have to find a way to equalize U.S. and third world wages. The problem is Obama has his hands full early in his term - stimulus package, health care, and these will have to come first.
