Under America's National Defense Authorization Act signed by U.S. President Barack Obama late last year, the foreign financial institutions of governments who continue to purchase Iranian crude oil after June 28, will be denied access to the U.S. financial market.

However, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday announced Washington's decision to exempt China and Singapore from the measures, citing their "significant" reduction in purchases from the Islamic republic.

For an America unemployed, China is as good a scapegoat as Goldman Sachs. On Tuesday, President Barack Obama said that a two year old trade tariff on automobile tires Made in China led to over a thousand jobs in the U.S. tire business. It did create some jobs, but not much. In 2010, roughly 51,600 people were employed by tire manufacturers, rising to 51,700 in 2011, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, the number has declined by the thousands since the tougher trade policy was enacted. In 2009, 55,000 people were employed in the industry on average throughout that year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The industry has been shedding U.S. workers for more than a decade, dropping from a high of 86,800 back in 2000. Making tires overseas is just cheaper for the big brands, and they have been moving production in that direction for a long time.

The tariffs did ultimately lead to a 30% reduction in Made in China tire imports from 2009 to 2011, but that didn’t mean 30% more tires were produced in the U.S. It just meant that 30% more tires were imported from Canada; 110% more from South Korea; 44% more from Japan; 152% more from Indonesia; 154% more from Thailand; 117% more from Mexico and 285% more from low volume provider Taiwan, according to the U.S. International Trade Commission.

Unemployment rate for blacks jumps to 14.4%...which means actually about 25% if you count all blacks out of work.

Bullshit, Romney didn't have any financial matters in the auto industry. Brains aren't everything. In fact, in your case they're nothing!

Ronald Reagan put a tariff on foreign cars causing VW, Toyota, Nissan and other to build plants here and hire Americans.

The only thing nobama is tough on, is Americans. Another green energy failure......TODAY!

WASHINGTON — Abound Solar, a solar panel maker that received a $400 million loan guarantee from the federal government, said Thursday that it will file for bankruptcy protection amid plummeting prices and intense competition from Chinese manufacturers.

The failure of Abound, which had tapped about $68 million of the loan guarantee before the Energy Department cut off its credit last September, comes after the collapse last year of Solyndra, another high-tech solar panel maker that had received federal funds.

The Boston Globe!!

More GM bullshit!

The residents at Boxwood, Stanton, Brandywine Springs and other surrounding communities may have lost the opportunity to get back to work at a nearby automobile assembly line.

Many of these residents were among the work force at the General Motors Boxwood Road plant outside Wilmington, Delaware. The plant was closed in July 2009 as part of the GM bankruptcy orchestrated by the Obama Administration. The Boxwood plant produced the Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky roadsters. GM shed the Pontiac and Saturn (as well as Saab and Hummer) nameplates as part of the company’s bankruptcy reorganization.

Smoke, mirrors, bullshit, twists and turns and black magic.

The democrats solutions to economic problems.

I've posted this three times, propaganda boy. You have ignored it three times, moved on to another topic and spammed the same lame message of no republican plan. Read slow, and if you need help with the big words, ask a conservative. They know HOW to read, which is why we know nobamacare is a travesty.

So your theory is a 2700 page bad plan which the country opposed is better than streamlining the system and actually having the cost go down instead of up as will happen is best? This, along with his ever increasingly transparent socialist agenda will cost him the presidency.
