Thanks for the change Obama. Its working - things are definitely changing. When are you going to make it unattractive for businesses to leave the US? When are you going to make it unattractive for suppliers and retailers to use and sell products not manufactured in the US (North American made stuff doesn't count because that inludes Canada and Mexico)? When are you going to end the handouts to illegal aliens? When are you going to close our borders? When are you going to cut the fat out of the local and national goverments? When are you going to stop bankrupting our country?

I have purchased my last Polaris product, and there will not be another. It's a sad day for the company.

This is a slippery slope. While it is a bad deal for Wisconsin, there are more jobs being added in Minnesota. Hopefully those jobs don't also leave.

Can't blame them. The democrats have forced businesses to make these types of moves to make a profit. To those ticked off at Polaris, get educated.

Well Obama seems to think small business will be all the economy needs. I don't have a clue where he is getting his economic advice but it for sure isn't anyone that is playing with a full deck. Dow is going down down and this clown hasn't a clue. Can't wait for the next election to vote all the idiots out of office.

A rude awakening, another company leaving the USA what a surprise, If only America was as lucky to have 90% of the politicians in this country move to another country and forgo their overpaid salaries and let the tax payers keep it would be a wonderful thing. Politicians do nothing to keep business here in the states, however they try their best to convince us they do, they are totalling ineffective and overpaid do nothings living off the sweat and backs of the public and feeding at the public trough.

Once again, the undermining of our country. War won't be what ruins this country, it will be companies selling out to other countries to make an extra buck.
