How Patriotic Is It To Advocate That American Corporations Outsource Their Jobs Overseas?

Conservative Lobbyist group, the US Chamber of Commerce, continues to advocate that American Corporations outsource their jobs overseas. Don't Conservatives always claim to be patriotic? Or maybe they are just patriotic when it doesn't hurt their profit margin. Please try to answer the question without attacking me personally, if you can.

  • That's just another example of Obama moving too far to the right. Try to stick to the question, Grly.

  • If I had to guess I would guess both parties take part in outsourcing. There are alot of companies out there doing it and I would be willing to guess some of them are owned by Democrats too.

  • I don't think patriotism has anything to do with it ~ business decisions all come down to profit margin.

    Really? Do you know how much of Obama's stimulus went to overseas businesses?  Jobs go overseas because labor is too expensive here...  In many cases,  unions have pushed jobs OUT of America....

  • In many cases, unions have pushed jobs OUT of America....


     Old and tired. So few people belong to a union in this day and age, it's time to move on and get to the root of the real problem and culprit-The outsourcing of jobs will turn this country into an industrialized Third world nation.

  • It's not about Patriotism.. I disagree with your opinion... It's about (as I said in answer #6), "Jobs go overseas because labor is too expensive here... In many cases, unions have pushed jobs OUT of America...."

  • So, by your standards.. How Patriotic is it for the President of the United States to appoint Jeffery Immelt, master outsourcing guru, to chair the Council on Jobs and Competitiveness?
