How is outsourcing both manufacturing and service jobs good for Americans?
Wouldn't this lead to less jobs for Americans as well as being too dependent on other nations for services and manufacturing? Yet so many Americans on yahoo answers think this is a good thing and back president Obama's plan to eradicate both service and manufacturing jobs yet they didn't support this plan under Bush. So someone please try to explain a logical answer on why its good for U.S. to continue outsourcing its service and manufacturing jobs.

You're right, it's not. It's ruining this country (that may be their intention). We used to be the world's largest creditor nation, that imported raw materials and exported finished goods. Now we are the world's largest debtor nation who export raw materials and import finished goods (that's the definition of a... More

It is NOT good, Americans need these jobs. It is easier to control people if they have to depend on the government for food, housing and other necessities, and that is the Obama Agenda. I have noticed Bush was bashed all the time, and some of the same things Obama is doing, and they now defend it. Double Standards is... More

Not to be the jerk here, but life was different back when most everyone had a job. Back in the 70's we had over 220 million jobs here. And many women could stay home and raise the family (which was a good thing). But, if I recall, our family friends had the same furniture, plates, and blankets for 40 years. Cars... More

Before the election in one of Obama's speeches he criticized businesses for sending all these jobs go overseas and that something needed to be done about it. What has he done to promote job growth here and to encourage employers to keep those... More

Simply stated it is not good for Americans, it never has been. However, you go on to mention that Obama wants to eradicate jobs, where does that come from? You go on to assume America would support this. But then you say Bush was doing the same thing but America didn't support it. This is just your imagination. Your... More
