Ah, the Republican "Patriots" Strike Again

They block legislation that would have discouraged American companies from outsourcing jobs:

The legislation would have raised taxes on corporations that shift operations overseas, costing U.S. jobs. It also would have awarded companies that bring jobs back from abroad by offering a two-year hiatus from payroll taxes for those positions.

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.

That's the Republican Party's slogan: America Last.

They care for nothing except their own power. All they know is, Obama must fail, even when that means America fails. Maybe especially then.
