Confronted with tax loopholes that encourage American corporations to move manufacturing overseas, John McCain just expressed sympathy with the corporations! Poor corporations, he said, who have to follow American laws. Poor corporations, he said, who are asked to give something back to the American nation that made their wealth possible.
John McCain said that the United States of America needs to ask less of the corporations that have abused American workers and bled our economy dry with their programs of outsourcing to cheap sweatshops overseas. John McCain expressed no sympathy for those of us who are left behind by the corporations running away to cheap and dirty economies in countries like China. All of McCain’s sympathy was for the corporations who have abandoned America.
America needs to aim lower, McCain said, and expect less. How is that country first?
