All of these companies were laying off American citizens in the aftermath of 9/11 and the stock market crash of 2001.

Boeing had just layed off 34,000.  General Electric CEO Jack Welch boasted of its administrative prowess in market share and profits after laying off 100,000 Americans.  Siemens is a German company and we are loaning them money.  Caterpillar busy replacing citizens with H-1B visa guest workers.

Meanwhile, the Rust Belt continues to bleed industries in the name of NAFTA and "Free Trade".

Of course, the oil companies need money.

Hard to compete with Uncle Sam paying the bills.  Level Playing Field MY ASS!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  But that's different (0+ / 0-)

    Under the Clinton administration, the Export - Import bank approved plenty of deals for huge corporations.

    Now that Democrats approve their funding, I'm sure that lots of jobs in Democratic districts are going to be created by deals funded by the Export - Import bank.

  •  A link to the report . . . (0+ / 0-)

    and a bit more info about just what these numbers mean would be useful to folks like me.
