Are you concerned for the sweatshop jobs or the empty suit jobs for overpaid, eldest child, arm twisters.

Ya, why give it time to work? It will only help Americans, and there are enough in both parties that donít understand economics.
Look no further then the two Senators from Massachusetts. One taught one course at Harvard, the other was an ice cream truck driving before these two bozos won elections in Massachusetts.

All you have to do in Massachusetts to win an election, is proclaim that you hate corporations, and successful people, and promise free stuff for the lazy.

Good point. How much time do we give corporations to BRING BACK all the overseas factories and money that left between 2009 and 20017?

Orin Hatch is a Koch bothers style, neocon POS. We're glad to be getting rid of him but we hope he doesn't have a clone of himself ready to plug into that spot. Don't forget this freak was in tight with McCain, Kennedy and Graham on some of the worst amnesties and give aways to ever exist. Hatch sucks. He's the ultimate insider sellout.

I think it would be great if Trump and family lead by example with their manufacturing currently being done in China.

It would be another bonus if Trump would hire Americans to work at his Clubs.

By the way, wages are lower and work days are longer, thanks to all those tax cuts. Not for management, wages are lower for the real workers.

These "frustrated Lawmakers" are the inhabitants of the swamp Mr. Trump is trying to drain.
So obviously they'll be frustrated at the prospect !
