Is out sourcing jobs still good for our Economy?
During the 2004 Election when asked about out sourcing jobs W said it would help our economy... How is that working out? Jerry your right Clinton signed NAFTA and WTO but it was all stuff that was in the work before him. Clinton was Republican Lite in most of his fiscal policy.

It gives us lower prices, so it's a trade-off. Those aren't real professional jobs anyway......just dirty factory/manufacturing jobs.

lol it never was, but there would be a lot of redtape involved in giving them back to Americans at this point ...

It is not good for the economy but with the raises in taxes towards corporations they have to take their jobs out of the country to make a profit which is why they are in business in the first place.
