    Amercan taxpayer dollars should be used to strengthen american families now.  The government was supposed to be shoring up the american economy all along. It is simple, if you are an american based company, pay taxes and employ american workforce, than your company should have a priority for hiring for all government service contracts. I am tired of the globally ambitious companies trying to build their international reach on the backs of the american workers by shipping jobs overseas or low balling salaries to make cheap goods. These days, I was always used to going to stores and relied on good brands for clothing and my home appliances. In recent days, I have been so disappointed in those "brand names" which now have labels: made in China, Antiqua, Mexico etc...We have to take care of our own first. It is time the government behaved that it is the servant of the american common good and act accordingly.
