November trade deficit: $36.4 billion



  • Elizabeth 6 years ago

    FINALLY a topic we can agree on! We NEED to buy American, support American business, and then put stricter limitations on citizenship into our country.
    Obama recently allowed HIV patients from other countries open access into the U.S.! I feel bad for them as well, but who is going to protect the U.S. citizens??
    This trade deficit also raises questions about when the Chinese are going to start imposing their power on us. We BETTER learn to support American business.

    Everybody used to let the U.S. control trade and be the powerhouse of the world. Now, other countries are stepping up to take that role because our Economy is in the toilet and we are divided like in the Civil War.

    We are in America and should support the American business first. This "global economy" trend doesn't make sense. If we have leftovers, we should share. But, we need to focus on America's Main Streets before helping foreigners.

    The merchandise from overseas is cheaper! Walmart gets their stuff there and sells it here...and it still costs less than what you can find in the United States. The same thing is true for cars. The Japanese make cars that last longer for a cheaper price because American cars are expensive because of union labor.
    We need to start appreciating just having a good job with benefits instead of outrageous pay....with no job.

    As I explained to my former employer, offshore vendors may be able to do the work cheaper in our industry, but we can do the work better. Then my job went overseas. It is a question of priorities. Is cheaper more important than better?

    As everyone rushes to Walmart to buy their cheap stuff (because it's all they can afford) they don't think about the impact it is having on the Mom/Pop businesses around them that can't compete, so they have to close down.
    And now it is a Global issue except the rest of the World, especially China, is Walmart and the Mom/Pop shops are America. We have no one to blame but ourselves.
