Subject: Fw: Shocking News from ABCs Diane Sawyer
this video takes about 3 minutes. I am passing it on from someone who sent it to me. I thought it was a joke, I kept waiting for the punch line. UN FN Believable.
OUR PRESIDENT, What the hell is he thinking?
I-635 in Texas is being rebuilt with underground tolls from I-35 to I-45 and is contracted to a CHINESE firm for over $5 billion.
Diane Sawyer reporting on U.S. bridge projects going to the Chinese.... NOT Americans.
The bridges are right here in the U.S. and yet Obama has approved for Chinese contractors to come in and do the work. What about jobs for Americans???
Watch this video. It doesn't take long to view.
This one should be tough for the supporters of the current regime to swallow....AND it comes from ABC NEWS
U.S.A. Bridges and Roads Being Built by Chinese Firms
Shocking to say the least! This video is a jaw-dropper that will make you sick.
(It was also shocking that ABC was actually reporting this story.)
The lead-in with Obama promising jobs in the U.S. by improving our infrastructure is so typical of all his promises!
Our tax dollars are at work - for CHINA !!!
I pray all the unemployed see this and cast their votes accordingly in 2012!

Q: Is President Obama responsible for Chinese companies building U.S. bridges with stimulus money, as reported by ABC News?
A: No. A viral email distorts an ABC News report. California officials hired a Chinese contractor and rejected federal money to avoid federal “Buy American” laws.
This email is an example of how things get distorted and go viral — even when the facts are just a click away. It’s true that ABC News did a report on Chinese firms winning contracts to repair U.S. bridges. But the report pointedly said states were to blame. It didn’t mention federal funds — let alone stimulus funds — except to note that California turned down federal money to avoid federal “Buy American” laws and hire a Chinese firm.
In a Sept. 23, 2011, broadcast, ABC News reported on bridge repair contracts going to Chinese firms in three states: Alaska, New York and California. But it gave details on only one project — a $7.2 billion repair of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. ABC News explained how and why the Chinese firm wound up with the contract, beginning with a decision by the California transportation department not to accept federal funds.
ABC News, Sept. 23, 2011: U.S. law actually requires major infrastructure projects to Buy America when the cost difference is reasonable. In California, U.S. firms say they would have met those guidelines. But state officials decided to turn down federal money for a major part of the bridge, allowing a Chinese company to get the job.
ABC News interviewed a CalTrans official who said the Chinese firm could provide the fabricated bridge decks more quickly because U.S. firms don’t have enough welders. The broadcast failed to note, however, that only some jobs, not all, will go to China as a result. And taxpayers saved a bundle. From a story in the New York Times last year:
New York Times, June 25, 2011: The assembly work in California, and the pouring of the concrete road surface, will be done by Americans. But construction of the bridge decks and the materials that went into them are a Made in China affair. California officials say the state saved hundreds of millions of dollars by turning to China.
California decided not to apply for federal funding for the project because the “Buy America” provisos would probably have required purchasing more expensive steel and fabrication from United States manufacturers.
At the end of his report, ABC News reporter Chris Cuomo says,“That’s why the Buy America laws were passed. If states can get around them, Diane, we’ll never bring America back.”(By the way, Cuomo is the son of former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo, a Democrat.)

HIs Dad's Friend Neil Abercrombie now our Governor in HI. Neil has addressed Democratic Socilait and burned down gollege buildingfs with other Marxist. So why shouldn;t he give like minded people 5 Billiuon in Texas or George Soros 2 Billion for PRC oil. You elected hiom and all the facts were known. If you do it agin your just ignorant. PRC firm brings employees. Imagine how many jobs he through away. He forgot his 30 months of pisss poor job creation. That is why he is having Communist build our bridges. He is a Patriot is you beleive on Marx and Lenin

Ths Facts Prove that this is Just Another Republican LYing E-Mail, one of millions on every concievable subject.
I watched the ABC News Report Twice. At No Time, in the Report did ABC indicate that President Obama had Anything At All to do with this.
Fact: There was language in the road and bridge bill to force the States to BUY and Hire American.
Fact; The States used STATE Money to buy and hire Foreign companies and workers, since they were prohibited from using Federal Money on those jobs.
Fact: the States wanted to hire Foreign workers, so they DID NOT Use Federal Funds for the Parts of Construction that the STATES GAVE to the foreign Companies.
Fact: The California Secretary of Transportation who did this IS a Republican.
Gov. Swarzennegger went to China and visited the plant that built the bridge parts and shipped them to California. I do believe that Ahnold Butt Grabber is a Vile Republican.
Fact: Texas Gov Rick Perry is also a Republican
It takes a lot of Brass to do something and then blame it on someone else who had nothing to do with what you did.
Fact; NO Federal Funds were used to hire the Foreign companies or the foreign workers. Federal Law forbid it.
If you don't like what was done in your States with Your State Tax Dollars, take it up with your Republican Governors. They did it!
They deliberately divided up the work into sections, so they could use Federal Funds in this section, and state funds for that section. Then they let the sections out for bids. Different companies were awarded different sections.
End of story.
ABC did report it accurately, but they did a pee poor job of reporting which led to the confusion. People looked into the confusion and saw what they wanted to see, which was NOT factual.

This is by far NOT the only report on Obama sending jobs to his pals down south and to China.
You must not have been listening because it is clear to me what they are talking about.
No one has to say "Obama" When he is the one in charge at the time..
I didn't write it so don't cry to me about it.
As long as people are reading it Im good.
Obama and his pals are corrupt and pissing on America.
People are waking up thanks to people like you posting your Krap trying to debunk the truth with obvious lies of obamazombies.
I really dont care what you say but I love to shove it right up your Foxhole..

Republicans Filibuster Bill Ending Tax Breaks For Shipping Jobs Out Of Country!
On Thursday, Senate Republicans FILIBUSTERED to block a bill ending the tax breaks companies get when they send our jobs out of the country -- and giving a few breaks to companies that hire here. The question now: will this get reported to the public? Will they be told this was a Republican filibuster, or just that "The Senate" "blocked" the bill? And will we ever know which companies -- and countries -- paid Republicans to kill this bill.
Which Companies And Countries Paid To Block This Bill?
The Republican Supreme Court has ruled that corporations -- even foreign-owned corporations -- are allowed to spend unlimited amounts of money electing Republicans, to influence which laws get passed -- or blocked. This week Republicans filibustered the DISCLOSE act, which would have at least let the public know which corporations and countries are giving money to Republicans.
So the same week Senate Republicans filibuster to block the bill that stops tax breaks to companies for shipping our jobs out of the country. Really? The same week? Isn't that a little bit blatant? Will the press tell the public?
The Media Coverage
A democracy requires that the citizens get accurate news, so they can make informed decisions. Will the public learn that Republicans filibustered to block this bill?
The won't learn it from the Washington Post:'Insourcing' bill fails to advance in the Senate
They learned it from FOX: Senate GOP kills measure to curb job 'outsourcing'
Politico will tell the public that Democrats failed: Democrats' outsourcing bill falls short
CBS gets it right: Senate GOP kills measure to curb job 'outsourcing'
LA Times? Nope: Bill to curtail outsourcing blocked in Senate‎
Bloomberg, yes: Senate Republicans Block Democrats' Anti-Outsourcing Plan
CNN: GOP senators block top Obama jobs initiative

Unfortunately No one listens to the unknown propaganda sites you post your Krap from..Ive never heard of this site or the writer.And as well he shows not one bit of actual evidence of anything and you edited out several parts where he blames democratic media for its failure to report the truth..I wonder why you edited that part out Jammer..So this little deflection comment of yours is meaningless. Lets stick with credible FOX news, Romney sites or obama sites and see where it goes..
Your comment here doesn't mention the millions of jobs obama sent to Venezuela to his pal George soros when he screwed us out of drilling for oil on our own off shore areas..
And you didnt mention GE and obamas connection to them sending millions of jobs overseas either.
Does that help ?
The republicans making rules and stopping outsourcing is a good thing , dont you think ?
Obama is chasing American businesses out of our own country..
