President Obama is definetly not trying to change from a policy of economic globalization, to promote American Manufacturing jobs as is evident by:
The following report for Congress in DEC 2009 that explains that national ballast water legislation would do the same thing as tariffs, plus protect our environment from the carbon footprint and dirty water trail of foreign ships bringing foreign manufactured imports into our country, stealing jobs from Americans.“Although estimates of the costs of ballast treatment may be imprecise and vary from vessel to
vessel, there is some general agreement on average costs.14 For example, it may cost an estimated $400,000 per vessel for modification of container/bulk vessels to use onshore ballast water treatment facilities at California ports. More generally, the cost of retrofitting vessels to treat
ballast water has been estimated at between $200,000 and $310,000 per vessel for mechanical
treatment and around $300,000 for chemical treatment.15 Most of this expense will be borne by
foreign shipping companies, as the U.S. flag fleet is a small percentage of the global fleet,16 and
likely passed along to consumers of products imported on these ships.” Cost and the ability to ship product are what determine where manufacturing companies invest. Currently all we have from this administration is a Military plan subject to the next commander and chiefs direction, giving incentives to foreign ships bring foreign manufactured goods into our country to install technology to protect our environment. This is while Americans are out of work, forcing the states, without an infrastructure for enforcement into expensive legislative competition with each other while dealing with an international organization of primarily foreign economic interest.(IMO) Sadly after the historic vote by the House in 2008,(passed 395-7), was killed by one Senator Boxer over her belief in state rights, overriding all Americans rights to control the amount of pathogens and virus dumped in US waters, this administration has again promoted the grandiose plan of economic globalization over economic Americanization as a way to create jobs.
