Let's Talk About Outsourcing

Actually, no. "Offshoring" is when jobs go overseas. "Outsourcing" is when an American company takes a department or division and finds a private American company that can do the work for less cost, usually because they pay their employees less. One American may lose a job, but another gains a job. No foreign workers or overseas relocation.
Among President Obama's disingenuous promises made over his four years, he said he would focus on creating "jobs that pay well and can't be outsourced." Yet he spent billions of U.S. taxpayer's money overseas to create outsourced jobs.

Typical of Obama's passion for outsourcing was the appointment of his jobs czar, Jeffrey Immelt, the CEO of General Electric. Even as he was basking in the prestige of his new title, Immelt was closing his last U.S. plant making light bulbs in Virginia and opening a plant in China to manufacture more expensive light bulbs, which Americans will be forced to buy.
