Tariffs will protect American jobs, officials say

Published: Mon, July 14, 2014 @ 2:19 p.m.

Ohio labor leaders and U.S. Congressman Tim Ryan claim the Commerce Department decision to levy tariffs against nine countries including South Korea will keep the local steel industry on equal footing with foreign competitors.

There have been 100 workers laid off in Ohio because of these illegal dumping practices from countries trying to get part of the market for producing steel pipe for the oil and gas industry, said Patrick Gallagher, United Steelworkers representative.

If foreign governments were allowed to continue to dump subsidized steel into the U.S. market more than half the domestic steel jobs in the country would be at risk, he said.

Good 'ole Ross Pe-ro. Whatever happened to him and his flash cards? Can't help but wonder if our world would be different if he was actually elected. Too bad people are more interested in voting in the "puppet" rather than the person who could actually lead this country.

“We’re on the edge of the cliff, and we have got to start fixing it now. Otherwise, we’re leaving a disaster to our children’s and our grandchildren’s future,” Ross Perot

'tariffs against nine countries including South Korea will keep the local steel industry on equal footing with foreign competitors'

There is a simple solution to poor US job creation. Show me a country with weak or ineffective property rights and I’ll show you a country with a weak economy and high unemployment. It’s that simple.

Just because they call it “reform” doesn’t mean it is.


“patent reform”…America Invents Act, vers 1.0, 2.0, 3.0…

“This is not a patent reform bill” Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) complained,
despite other democrats praising the overhaul. “This is a big
corporation patent giveaway that tramples on the right of small

Senator Cantwell is right. All these bills do is legalize theft. Just because they call it “reform” doesn’t mean it is. The paid puppets of banks, huge multinationals, and China continue to brain wash and bankrupt America.

They should have called these bills the America STOPS Inventing Act or ASIA, because that’s where they’re sending all our jobs. The present bill (vers 1, 2, 3, etc) is nothing less than another giveaway for huge multinationals and China and an off shoring job killing nightmare for America. Even the leading patent expert in China has stated these bills will help them steal our inventions.

Patent reform is a fraud on America. These bills will not do what they claim they will. What they will do is help large multinational corporations maintain their monopolies by robbing and destroying their small entity and startup competitors (so it will do exactly what they paid for) and with them the jobs they would have created. They have already damaged the US patent system so that property rights are teetering on lawlessness. These bills will only make it harder and more expensive for small firms to get and enforce their patents. Without patents we cant get funded. In this way large firms are able to play king of the hill and keep their small competitors from reaching the top as they have. Yet small entities create the lion’s share of new jobs. According to recent studies by the Kauffman Foundation and economists at the U.S. Census Bureau, “startups aren’t everything when it comes to job growth. They’re the only thing.” Meanwhile, the large multinationals ship more and more jobs overseas. These bills are a wholesale destroyer of American jobs.

Those wishing to help fight big business giveaways and set America on a course for sustainable prosperity, not large corporation lobbied poverty, should contact us as below.
