Real simple solution.
Put tariffs on EVERYTHING imported to make them priced they way they should be and stop taking advantage of cheap labor.
This gives the US companies the incentive to move back and provide jobs for our people. If the companies all complain about the high tariffs, cut them off cold turkey and see how well they survive with no base to sell to. Then if they fail from their own unchanging and stupidity, another company will pop up to provide the service the way we need it handled.
Then once a majority of the companies are manufacturing back in the US, and everyone has decent jobs and a little extra money, just slightly increase the prices so you have a little bit larger profit margin, and everyone wins.
The Government wins because we now have a bigger, better taxation base both from the companies and the working citizens.
The Companies win, because now folks can actually afford their useless products and they have a happier work base
The Citizen wins, because now they have a decent job and money to buy foolish things with.
Do you know how crazy it sounds to hear that our government shipped our jobs out of country. They cut their ownselves by doing so. The tax base reduced from fewer workers and fewer companies here paying any taxes. Make it to where its PROFITABLE to have the company here and alot of this will go away. It may mean higher prices initially to get readjusted, but more people will have jobs and can afford it after a short time. Sheesh, its not rocket science people, and we should be DEMANDING this solution and holding anyone inhibiting said outcome accountable. They are traitors to our country, themselves, and our all of our great citizens. Screw the folks in China or Mexico or Japan if it means taking care of own. we cant help them if we cant help ourselves.
Really? You don't say? Then he could do the same if he were so adamant about extending the benefits again. However if you hadn't noticed, he's really not a leader. He's more of a community organizer.

The money you pay in isn't supposed to be stagnating in a locked room somewhere...it's invested by Government in secure investments and ought to increase in value.

What is the problem here???
People should not be paid to not work. Plain and simple.
It is wrong and we don't have the funds for free stuff.
