Why did GE ship thousands of jobs to China under the Obama Administration?
When the CEO of GE is Obamas Jobs czar even? I thought "liberals" hated it when China made stuff we sell in America? Is labor cheaper in China for GE ? Maybe Obama didn't want to bail GE out again? OR! Since they are mafia style folks in DC now- they probably asked China if they can borrow half a billion in return for creating jobs making our light bulbs- squiggly ones that are filled with poison.

I not sure why Romney is not using that point or the fact that 30 billion of the stimulus went over seas to other countries while Obama intentionally cut jobs here.

GE has not needed a bailout. Any work they have sent overseas is work that could be done cheaper there. Light bulbs are one of the least of GE's products, and all light bulbs have poison in them, even conventional ones. They are not made to be eaten

because they're a company and that's what companies have been doing for the past 20 years... I don't like it... but Romney loves it... so I can't exactly vote for him...

GE is not running for President., Mitt Romney is. Last time I checked President Obama is not a CEO of GE. Where is your outrage at the airlines who fly half way across the planet to get their planes serviced?

This thing about part of the money that GM got from Obama's bailout going to overseas factories needs to be brought up front and center also. Our tax dollars were used to save foreign jobs. And that fool wants to talk about outsourcing.
