So, apparently Democrats with "I was for healthcare before I was against it" Republican Joseph Cao passed an amendment that aims to end tax cuts for companies that outsource jobs. This leaves me completely confused for a number of reasons. First, why on earth were there any tax cuts for companies that basically make unemployment higher, especially in the middle of a recession? Should that be one of the first things to eliminate? You get less people on unemployment benefits and more people paying income tax. Seems like a no-brainer? If anything, we should tax companies that outsource jobs more because they're saving so much on cheap foreign labor while putting more Americans on taxpayer funded unemployment checks. Second, why on earth would anyone vote to keep this cuts in place??. The GoP's platform for 2010 is two things: repeal HCR and create jobs, yet only one voted to end a huge incentive to send jobs out of America. Isn't this handing Dems a huge talking point to use against them?? Every time a republican says "jobs," the Democrats can say, "but you voted to send jobs overseas." Maybe the GoP figures if we get rid of all our jobs to other countries they can end illegal immigration. Why come to America when all we already gave them all our jobs?
