Outsourcing catches up
BY WAYNE BELDE
It is quite difficult to watch, read, or listen to the news anymore and hear about how a lot of states, along with the federal government, are going bankrupt. Am I the only one who remembers corporate America outsourcing millions of jobs overseas for the past 10 years? Well, it is catching up to all of America now.
Just think of how much money would be going to our state and federal governments through income tax witholdings from all of those paychecks that are now being given to people in other countries. Think of all the state sales tax money that is being lost because everyone's spending has been curtailed.
Let's cut the bologna and stop blaming public sector jobs and social programs that were affordable before millions of jobs were just given away by such companies as Bain Capital. Put the blame where it really belongs. Greedy big business corporate America! Greed is what is killing our country, and if you disagree with this idea solely because you may belong to a political party that does not subscribe to this theory, then you are not a very patriotic American. Let's bring all those jobs back to America, and we can start by taxing the heck out of all those companies that refuse to do so. That'll get this country's economy rolling again!
