Writer says


job czar


not helping


Wake up, America!


Repeal NAFTA now. And bring our jobs back home. It’s the only way to jump-start this once great nation that is failing.


Yep, our smarter than anyone else person in Washington, D.C., strikes again. This will certainly not help the U.S. economy. The biggest employer in Waukesha, Wis., has relocated some of its executives. General Electric moved the top managers from its 115-year-old X-ray division headquarters in Wisconsin to Beijing, China.


In addition, the company will invest $2 million in China and train more than 65 engineers and create six research centers. This is the same GE that made $5.1 billion in the United States last year, but paid no taxes, the same company that employs more people overseas than it does in the United States.


So. Let me get this straight. This person in D.C. appointed GE chairman Jeff Immelt to head his commission on job creation (job czar). Immelt is supposed to help create jobs.


I guess the person in D.C. forgot to tell him in which country he was supposed to be creating those jobs.


Thanks, Jeff, you’re a “real” American, and give (this person in D.C) our best.


If this doesn’t show you the total lack of leadership of this person in D.C., I don’t know what does. Please pass this information to others and think about it before you buy a GE product.
