The Arsonist Blames the Fire Department

President Obama wants to “slash the tax breaks for companies that ship our jobs overseas.”

Jobs are outsourced precisely because of strangling government regulations, higher corporate taxes than anywhere else, and government support for the extortions of socialist labor unions.  Never-ceasing government intervention has made the United States no longer competitive on world markets in too many product categories.

Obama’s solution is to bury the nation under debt, bankrupt private business, and have everybody working for his socialist government bureaucracies in so-called green jobs, green in the sense of corrosive fungi.
