Because government spends way too much. How is doubling the cost of oil, and crushing our economy, going to fix that?
Companies source more and more, from Chinese workers.
I wonder if cutting our highest in the world corporate tax rates as well as some of our idiotic regulations (Obamacare anyone?) would make domestic sources more viable?
You do not get it.
China is soaking up money and trade. Chinese trade laws are extremely one-sided, requiring local content and more importantly, ensuring a one-way flow of ever more money into the country by requiring goods be made in China with a majority ownership also, Chinese.
The cost difference was so great, that a huge number of American firms sold out, and now a majority of our “goods” are cheap imports.
More all the time.
It is time to push back.
Bring American goods home, and stop importing so much.
