What we should do is not allow such companies to bring their products back into the country instead of taxing them. If they weren't allow to bring their manufactured goods into our country, they would be more willing to have them manufactured over here instead of places like China. That would improve our economy... More

I don't think there's a need to punish anyone. I think there's a need to consider the interests of domestic workers when formulating trade policy.

Hit them in their wallet, don't buy their products. Use your power as a consumer to bring these greedy jerks to their knees. Most products that are not essential are price sensitive. That is, if the price is too high they sell less. If they sell less they make less money. And, when money talks, they listen.

Doesn't this fall under the category of NAFTA? If then shouldn't we sue Clinton?

They should be heavily taxed or fined. It's just wrong to send jobs elsewhere. They do it to save a buck, they don't want to pay the American worker a living wage, they don't want to have to provide benefits to the American worker, they're greedy bastards that should be held accountable for helping to destroy the...

Corporate outsourcing is a direct result of unfair trade agreements that the government put together in the first place coupled with taxation that doesn't allow them to compete. The government has had great success in pointing to the successful in this country and deflecting the blame for all of your woes on them. It... More

Punish? They did nothing wrong. The morals of a corporation is that of profit and shareholders, they are not human, they only get away with what the rules let them. We have to bring back protections that use to make sure we have an industrial might. It started with Reagan and Clinton did not help by signing the... More

Maybe the question should be: what can we do so that companies are willing to invest here.

The government won't do anything, the corporatocracy run the United States, they own the media and they decide which puppet candidates they will put in front of you, may as well learn to live with it, because there aint s*** you can do about it.

You want them to stop outsourcing? Quit taxing the bejesus out of them.

There shouldn't be any punishment - there should be a concerted effort to make our country more business friendly to entice them to bring back the jobs.

Punishing a company would do nothing but harm to the cause. Rewarding companies for keeping jobs in the U.S. is the right thing to do. By punishing them, they can effectively move their headquarters to another country less harsh, and then charge the U.S. an import tariff.

They had already been punished, which is why they left to begin with. More of the same will not produce a different result.
Answered By: §§pecial Unicorn - 1/2/2009
They were already punished by high taxes which made them outsource in the first place.
