38. Some in congress (both Democrats AND Republicans) are trying, and even President Obama has
Edited on Sun Aug-30-09 02:13 PM by Deja Q
ensured that little piggies like Steve Baller start to whine "Taxing foreign profits will make US labor too expensive". What's Steve been snorting anyway? Tariffs only equalize the playing field. I thought "globalists" wanted an even playing field?

Like I said, the piggies want it both ways. Thankfully we have people in Congress, on BOTH SIDES, who care about AMERICA'S ECONOMY. (e.g. Durbin, Grassley, others...)

Forgive my vitriol. Especially in today's economy, there are more than plenty of competent, capable, intelligent Americans to do the jobs. (And yes, there are dumb ones too, but it's fairly obvious the H1B system is being abused. By both sides.)
