74. The working class is UNITING against foreign outsourcing.

 

You might want to work on those reading skills. I did not claim that China's working class is worse off now.

Then you might want to work on your debating skills. A growing working class completely negates your argument about tariffs being bad for China. A growing middle class is always good. Perhaps you do not comprehend what YOU write?

Your attempt to associate me with Rmoney is even more laughable. Romney wants to destroy the middle class. President Obama called him out for outsourcing American jobs. You think outsourcing is good. Romney is more a friend of you than me.

"Germany, Norway, Sweden and many more have low unemployment, strong unions, trade surpluses and equitable distributions of income. And they trade with other countries to a much higher degree than we do. Yes, they have adapted very well. FDR would be quite proud of them and ashamed of what the US has become."

That's good for them. They also don't have 300 million people. Germany also has trade barriers which you keep refusing to acknowledge - taxes on imports AND product quality standards are just two of their barriers. It hasn't helped Germany much against China's trade war against the solar industry. China is killing Germany with cheap solar products. Norway and Sweden? Their economy could never support a population like ours. Perhaps if we cut our population down to less than 80 million people we could mimic them?

And you still have yet to accept the basic fact that strong union laws mean nothing when you can move your factory overseas.

Tariffs keep jobs from moving out of the country. Show me one example in history where heavy across-the-board tariffs against imports caused MORE offshoring. Please. Maybe you can find an FDR quote that shows this happened?
