Romney Outsourcing Jobs

On the issue of outsourcing (the flap of a couple of weeks ago), I was discussing this with a good friend and his comment was, I thought, dead on. Regardless of the extent to which Bain Capital did “outsourcing,” and whether Romney was involved or not, the issue should be clear: When Romney ran Bain, his job was to make the company profitable. If the tax and litigation environment in the US made outsourcing necessary, then his job would call for doing that. The job of President of the United States is very different: Obama’s job includes making the United States a good choice for building a business, and making employment here more attracting than outsourcing.  At this, Obama has failed, just as he utterly failed to help the people of Chicago.

Romney, as President, would bring a long track record of success to this job, and his understanding of the job market and how it works far exceeds the current president. And Romney actually likes free enterprise. What a difference that will make!

The reason that jobs are outsourced in some cases is that it is often much better for the company to do so. So much so, that even a strong inclination to use United States labor is punished. Turn that around! Reduce the job-killing tax burden, litigation threat, and other aspects that make US jobs so treacherous, and millions of jobs will spring up right in the US.

Now, if we could only fix our education system so that people are capable of doing the work and interested in doing so…

    I’ll have to remember that arguement for later, it makes sense.

    My fears in this election are actually more about which candidate will do the least constitutional damage while they are in office. I’m certain that is Romney, I just don’t know that I trust him to really follow the constitution fully. Of course maybe that isn’t a fair statement, There are a few consitutional amendments I would like repealed (17th and 18th). But I guess it could be summed up, is he for a small weak national government, leaving the power to the states (which have a wide range of legislative control), or having the federal government involved in as much as he can. I believe he is headed towards smaller government…

    What is your take?
