SHOCKING ABC News on Obama/USA Infrastructure

This is an ABC news story. They have always been huge
supporters of the Chicago politician......







SHOCKING ABC News on Obama/USA Infrastructure



Folks, everything BHO proclaims to be in
favor of jobs for USA workers is BS. Check the record of his Jobs Czar, who closes
his company in America and moves them to the relocated company in China.



**************************************************************



USA Bridges and Roads Being Built by Chinese
Firms



Shocking to say the least! This video is a jaw-dropper that will make you
sick. (It was also shocking that ABC was actually reporting this story.)



The lead-in with Obama promising jobs in the U.S. by improving our infrastructure
is so typical of all his promises! Our tax dollars are at work - for
CHINA!!!



I hope all the unemployed see this and cast their votes accordingly in 2012!

    About time the Liberal MSM started telling the whole story and the truth. Obama can't be allowed to have his anti-American policies go unrecognized , the liar must be exposed.

    Chinese mechanics

    Check out this picture from earlier this year of what reportedly is a jet engine for a Chinese commercial airline. The jet stopped off at an airport in Germany just for fuel already looking like this. Apparently this engine, which wasn’t working anyway, had straps holding the fan blades from freely turning in the wind because it caused too much vibration during flight. What really tops this off is that these strategically placed straps are actually seat belts from inside the plane!

    If China's mechanics in jet propulsion are this great, I can't wait to drive across one of their high tech bridges.

    Either you are extremely naive and gullible or you are ignorant. There is absolutely ZERO chance of those straps staying on those turbines for more than a nano second when that engines begins to spin. BTW, get used to Chinese engines here and abroad.

    It was a dead engine to begin with... the straps were being used to keep the blades from free spinning.

    Don't believe eveything you read on the net, this is an old photo from at least a half dozen years ago. China has yet to produce a decent aircraft, how can we expect them to keep Boeings and Airbuses flying.

    I think it's very strange how there are no young, hungry, investigative journalists who want to expose obama. Perhaps obama has put a Fatwa out on everyone who is against him. It just strikes me that there is so much fodder there that it would be a journalists dream.

    Oh.....I forgot. There are no more journalists.....

    Ok, let's look at the claims made in the video:

    1) Three states, NY, CA, and Alaska each had bridge rebuilding projects which could have provided jobs to Americans and kept the tax dollars here in our own economy.

    2) US law states that we must buy American when the bids are reasonably close.

    3) CA officials claim their contracts went to Chinese gov't-owned companies because they could do it cheaper and faster than US companies.

    4) CA state officials turned down federal funding for most of their 4.2 billion dollar bridge construction.

    5) CA DoT spokesman stated that it's too difficult to find qualified welders here that can do the job.

    6) Unions cry "foul!"

    7) ABC News' Chris Cuomo replies to Diane Sawyer that US firms say they could absolutely have competed for this job for less money and hurried the time frame.

    8) Cuomo: "...It's not a level playing field - the Chinese firms are state owned. They don't pay their workers as much. That's why the 'buy America' laws were passed."

    9) Cuomo: "If states can get around them, Diane [the buy America laws], we'll never bring America back."

    10) Cuomo: "You have to enforce the rules that let American companies play."

    Cuomo makes it sound like it's all the fault of the states. We should make states buy American. The unions would definitely agree....

    Cuomo makes it sound like it's all the fault of the states. We should make states buy American. The unions would definitely agree. In a perfect world, American companies would get the contracts. But California's economy is in the toilet, imho, largely because the state leadership makes lousy choices on taxes and spending. They can't find welders?! They don't have the funds to bring American welders from around this great country, but they can afford to bring Chinese workers and contractor here to do the job faster and cheaper?

    Cuomo's point that it isn't a level playing field is correct. But I have to wonder if these aren't actually paybacks to China for buying so much of our debt - or is China now under-righting California's debt somehow?! I don't believe the facts are all out on the table.

    Cuomo's conclusion implies that no matter what, states should not be able to decide who to hire; that the contracts will inevitably go to American companies when they are permitted to compete. The report does not say how many American companies bid on the project in CA or how far apart those bids were. After a company loses a bid, they will always say that they could have cut back the cost and time table. The truth is that bids are suppose to be sealed so no one knows what the others have bid. Rarely is there the chance to re-bid. Companies must make their best offer at the start. It's not like a negotiation for a house purchase, where all parties can go back and forth until they agree on terms.

    This video isn't exactly news. It's commentary, which does not disclose enough information to make any conclusions. Is it a shame that this has happened? Yes!!! Should Washington DC take away states' rights? No!!! Just as companies can fail and should be allowed to fail, so should legislators and states be able to succeed or fail, but at their own peril, not the entire nation's. We don't need Crony Capitalism, nor do we need Tyranny. A truly free marketplace will iron out these issues. However, other countries do not abide by the same rules. We can put taxes on foreign companies that level the playing field and make it apples and apples, rather than apples and oranges. OR, we can take away some of the unreasonable and burdensome regulations which make our companies so uncompetitive that they have to go overseas to stay in business, Chris Cuomo!!! Ever think of that?!

    The two major cities involved in this report are New York and California. BOTH Democrat States. Run by Democrats and the State agencies that hired the Chinese are run by Democrats. Remember those facts Liberals, when you try to tell us it is the 'dirty Corporations' that are taking our jobs away.

    I lived in Detroit and had dealings with friends and family for 40 years. Live 10 minutes from my old neighborhood or should I say the 'War Zone'. Most homes are either boarded up or burned to the ground. The Liberals have DESTROYED Detroit.

    There is no hope for Detroit, no matter what anyone says. I have seen the destruction.
