OPINION: Insourcing in America

President Obama proposed the American Jobs Act, to ensure that the next generation of jobs are created here in America.

By Steven Kidder

We need a job-creating economy built to last, where hard work pays off and responsibility is rewarded.  Not one based on outsourcing, loopholes, or risky financial deals that jeopardize everyone, especially the middle class.

President Obama proposed the American Jobs Act, to ensure that the next generation of jobs are created here in America by giving new tax breaks to companies that insource and taking away tax breaks from companies that ship jobs overseas.  It also helps our country continue to recover from the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.

He made the bold decision to rescue the American auto industry – a decision that helped save over 1 million jobs up and down the supply chain. Here in New Hampshire, 23,000 jobs are supported by the auto industry.  On top of that he has also created 4.3 million jobs in the private sector through 27 straight months of job growth.

While, Mitt Romney has put politics ahead of our countries needs.  You can see that in what he did while he was governor of Massachusetts.  Under Romney, it plummeted to 47th out of 50 in job creation and outsourced call center jobs to India.  And when the auto industry was on the brink of collapse, he said "let Detroit go bankrupt."  Gov. Romney would hurt the middle class by bringing back the same failed policies that created the economic crisis in the first place.

As you can see Romney has zero new ideas to create good middle class jobs in America.  He just wants to take us back to the same familiar failures that caused this economic crisis.  All he plans to do is cut taxes for millionaries, like himself, and roll back rules on Wall Street.  While simultaneously raising taxes on 18 million hardworking Americans.

If this is an "Op/Ed" piece instead of a letter to the editor, shouldn't there be a short bio or into of writer?

Thank you, ressumit. And thanks for your comment. Your question was answered. That info isn't always included. The headline was changed to reflect the nature of the piece. If you'd like to address the topic and ideas presented in the opinion article, or submit your own that would be great as well.

What I would like to know Mr Smith is why the piece was originally titled "Op/Ed". Just looking for a little education. What would you consider to be Op/Ed? Take the time to share your journalistic knowledge with someone eager to learn.
