    I'm wondering if some of these large companies, who don't want regulation or lose tax credits for shipping jobs overseas, are purposely waiting to get Mitt into office so the republicans can claim job growth.

    Discuss.

    Also, do the job number reports add up all the jobs created overseas by U.S.-based companies? That would be interesting to know.

    Just came out a week ago: U.S. Adds More Jobs, But Mostly Overseas

    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702303990604577367881972648906.html

    My question, are U.S. citizens overseas filling these jobs? It doesn't seem like it.

    Corporations are profit driven. If they need employees to fill a gap. They do it.

    To not do so means you miss opportunity and risk the business. In a big economy like the US even if 10% of the companies got together to collude in a scheme to hurt jobs. Other companies would come along and take advantage of it.

    wtrestlervic this is not addressed at you perse. But Liberals in general misunderstand free markets. In a understandable way they project their own philosophy about behavior onto how free markets. Attributing the current situation of extra CASH ON HAND that corporations are sitting on as a scheme to make Obama look bad.

    If the corporations could turn 100million dollars into 100billion dollars by investing/hiring they would do it . Its not about Obama , its about the current climate being uncertain.

    And in a nutshell this is what the whole election is about. Philosophy. Obama and progressives have a different way at looking at the world , they have a paranoid attitude towards corporations because most of them never ran a business .

    A friend said "well arent Corporations people now? why dont we hold them accountable for sitting on cash ( through taxes) for not hiring".

    I understand his argument after the Supreme Court case . But it boils down to what kind of country do you want to live in.

    If companies wanted to make America better, they could easily hire in the U.S. and give up some of their profits for the greater good. How many boats, yachts, summer homes, vacation homes, vacations, Escalades do these CEOs need?

    Again, it all boils down to morality and integrity vs. greed and profits.

    I am sorry to say it sounds a bit like one of Socal's second hand conspiracy theories (though, unlike him, at least you refrained from cutting and pasting an entire essay from some neocon nut job website).

    My parents own a small business and they know democrats are better for the economy. Democrats don't infringe on fair business practices. They support and encourage American business. At the same time they protect the middle class, guaranteeing equal opportunities for people to empower themselves. Republicans are just looking for cheap labor and they're too short sighted to see that their businesses are shrinking because they've cannibalized their profits by gutting the middle class.

    I don't think that's the case
    Companies right now are sitting on their assets because they can
    There is a wait and see approach ... they don't want to make the comittment for hiring new personel if they don't have to

    But IF YOU THINK Romney has the answers to this I got some Condo shares in Outer Mongolia for you icon_rolleyes.gif

    Just like Bill said ....... why would you think that hiring someone who states they wanna do the same damn things that got you into this mess in the first place is gonna get you out ?

    They're "not hiring" for two reasons.

    ---Many of them are manufacturing overseas, so not hiring American workers.
    ---They don't need to hire more workers to produce more products that out of work people can't afford to buy.
