61. Wait
Until the other shoe drops, that being auto manufacturing in the US.

If Wal*Mart auto dealerships open up in the US in the next decade, selling Chinese and maybe Indian manufactured vehicles, what remains of the domestic auto industry (if any) will go first, then the Japanese, Korean, and German manufacturers will leave the right-to-work states. There is NO competing against millions of peasants willing to work for a few yuan a day.

I love the Repugs mantra of tax cuts tax cuts tax cuts...LMAO!! 2/3 of all foreign and domestic businesses paid no federal taxes in the past decade, due to loopholes in the tax code that leaks revenue like a sieve. No tax cuts for business is going to stop or slow the massive outsourcing and offshoring of US jobs anyway. It was okay when blue collar jobs began to be offshored in the 80s, but when the white collar jobs began to be outsourced as well in the 90..uh-oh, NOW there is a problem!!
