Once again, majority governance has failed. Republicans have blocked a bill from coming to the floor that directly addressed outsourcing:
"The tax bill under consideration Tuesday included three parts: an end to tax deductions for expenses incurred when companies shutter a U.S. operation and shift the work abroad, a new tax on products once made in the United States but now manufactured by foreign workers and the payroll tax holiday."
We are going to continue to actually incentivize the exportation of jobs. I think the democrats would be wise to hammer this particular filibuster all the way to election day.
