I saw this coming years ago.
The liberals started taxing regulating and tree-hugging the corporations out of the US.
My last job was a superintendent and VP of a mining company.
As a company we were taxed for every employee, unemployment, workman's comp, PERMIT after PERMIT and fees for the permits.
Then we had to hire 1 office worker for every 2 persons working underground,
Then we had to pay high fuel taxes for the equipment we used.
Then property taxes on the trees on the property because we did not want to "pay" for the permits to cut them down.
All this before and on top of the taxes on the profits we might make.
Then we had to pay money to cover our company from taxes(fines) for thing that we had not done but some bureaucrat claimed we did,
We also had to cover our-self from Environmental Bounty Hunting by the tree hugger. another form of tax.
why does the government need 27 forms with the same information on them when one form for all agencies would do the same thing. and save trees.
another form of tax because it takes time and money and a employee to fill out and send in all these forms.
THIS is one of the main reason companies leave the US
Now you have companies that hire illegals to save money because of the above.
They can no longer hire american workers because after all the above "taxes" they would not have any money,
OR they would have to raise the cost of there product so high that the asian countries with there cheap labor and few government regulation would
This is what is happening to many US corporations like the auto industry and manufacturing companies.
This means lower paying jobs for US workers and lower wages mean the workers buy cheaper products from asia and the US companies lose more money.
The companies then close plants and layoff workers because they cannot sell there products.
Now you have the democrats that want to tax the US companies for going overseas.
All that will do is put the US companies out of business to be replaced by foreign companies. that they can not tax.
It will NOT create any new US jobs and will cost the US jobs as foreign companies take over,
Other things that the loss of the US automakers will do is slow down or stop the cleaning up of the environment in the US.
why should foreign companies care about the environment in the US they will tell the US gov that you ether take our cars or do without.
but then working at burger-king you will not have the money to buy a new car and will have to drive that polluting old clunker for many more years
then you would have if there were better paying jobs.
I just wonder what new global warming laws the democrats will dream up now that so many people are unemployed and who is going to pay for them.
Watch they will go after US companies and we will lose even more JOBS.
The new jobs we will see are going to be union jobs and will go to democratic supporters. the rest can starve.
This has been happening in Calif with its democratic party machine.
the teacher union the prison guards union. the police and fire unions.
all the public employees unions supported by the rest of us.
they all have health care payed for by us.
what will happen when they pass national health care in the US and who will pay for it the US companies, think again it will just drive more overseas
or out of business.
I love all this, I am a veteran on disability and no longer work and get my health care free, I payed my dues.
Its all of you S**kers that will have to pay for your votes.
Till we leave the state and they run out of money.
By the way i could start a business doing solar and wind equipment but i will not waste my money paying the democrats "TAXES" instead of making a
living working. I would have had to hire employees that would have been jobs for someone that are lost.
