If I ever had any doubt that is is Obama's plan to destroy this country, it is gone. This is my straw.

 Quoting: Macraider


"Congress Revolts On Obama Plan That Would Ban 'Buy American' "

WASHINGTON -- A group of 68 House Democrats and one Republican sent a letter to President Barack Obama on Thursday urging him to reconsider an element of the controversial free trade agreement currently being negotiated by the administration. If approved in its current form, the pact would effectively ban "Buy American" policies in government contracting.

Re: Obama Plan That Would Ban 'Buy American'
It's funny how Politics works. I agree we should all buy American. Go out and check out your cars right now. I have never bought a foreign car in my life. How many here can say the same. Even though I don't agree with Obama on this one or most of his "Free" trade policies here's what happened the last time he included a "Buy American" clause in a bill. This was part of the Stimulus Bill in 2009. We Americans are fickle. We need to make up our minds first before we tell our politicians what to do.

Look under the hood of your American made cars, take the dash apart and examine the components, electronics etc, go to the US factories and do some investigative research and you'll find that most of your American made car was made in China and other countries.

Buy made in America products, should be changed to: "Buy mostly assembled in America!"

When it comes to major manufacturers in the US that is all they really are, assemblers of foreign made products, and even most of those jobs are now either relocated to China and other countries, or outsourced to them.

I fucking love reading these comments and seeing people blame liberals and Democrats. As if voting could change anything. What ever shill they put in the white house will still work for the corporate agenda and this will all still get pushed through. Nothing will change. Democracy with two party's....how does that work?

Re: Obama Plan That Would Ban 'Buy American'
Did you read the fine print in the article? The Buy American clauses say that the government should buy American items if possible and can pay more for items made in America and in that case doesn't have to go with the lowest bidder.

This concerns only govt purchases. It's not an overall ban on Buy American movements in general and could actually save the govt money.

Of course, the govt spends a lot of money and it would be nice if that went to American companies but this is not nearly as bad as the headline suggests.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1238594



"Since the 1930s, the American government has offered preferential treatment to American producers in the awarding of federal contracts. If a domestic producer offers the government a more expensive bid than a foreign producer, it can still be awarded the contract under certain circumstances, but more recent free trade agreements have granted other nations the same negotiating status as domestic firms. The Obama administration is currently pushing to grant the several nations involved in the Trans-Pacific deal the same privileged status, according to the Thursday letter."

"We do not believe this approach is in the best interests of U.S. manufacturers and U.S. workers," the letter reads. "Of special concern is the prospect that firms established in TPP countries, such as the many Chinese firms in Vietnam, could obtain waivers from Buy American policies. This could result in large sums of U.S. tax dollars being invested to strengthen other countries' manufacturing sectors, rather than our own."

So that means it is possible a gubberment contract may go to the high bidder in China over a cheaper American company?

Fuck yah, I can see the savings...douche bag.rant

Re: Obama Plan That Would Ban 'Buy American'
There's also this:


Public interest groups also worry that the same trade policies that could ban Buy American breaks will also prevent the U.S. government from making environmental or public health stipulations in federal contracts. The current language barring preferential treatment for American goods is so broad as to limit government specifications on goods to purely functional aspects. When contracting for paper, for instance, the government could specify that it wants to buy paper of the dimensions 8.5" by 11" -- but it could not require that the paper be composed of recycled materials or use non-toxic dye.

He is a globalist that wants to bring all the poor people up and take the wealthy people down so all people on the entire planet are on the same level.

That will leave the elite and rulers at the top with the rest of us as lower middle class sheep. USSA.

where is Congress? where is the supreme court? why isn't anyone with authority trying to repair the mistake that was committed electing this guy into office?

I refuse to believe that everyone with any political power is more concerned with lining their own pockets than they are about leading this country into the future as a strong, morally intake, soverign nation.

If the President has done something treasonous the other branches of the Gov. would take action. You can't charge a President or anyone else for that matter for treason because you swear their a Communist, Kenyan from Mars. Take a deep breath, Obama has done nothing to hurt this Country. No more than the Republicans that had control for about thirty years did.
