    Default Republicans Defeat the ‘Stop Outsourcing of American Jobs’ Amendment

    Same ole thing everyday. Nothing new with the republicans or Trump.
    When the House Ways and Means Committee debated the GOP tax bill yesterday, Republicans voted down the “Stop Outsourcing of American Jobs” amendment offered by Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas).

    The “Stop Outsourcing of American Jobs” amendment would require that multinational corporations looking to invest offshore pay the same tax rate as small businesses or domestic companies investing here in America. The amendment was defeated on a party-line vote, with 16 Democrats voting in favor and 23 Republicans voting against.

    This is what Rep. Doggett had to say in support of his amendment:

    “President Trump has made stopping the outsourcing of American jobs a central element of his promise to the American people. Unfortunately, like his promise to have Mexico pay for his unnecessary wall, it’s very much a broken promise.

    You could say the same thing for the imploding Democrats,they are all running for the exit doors.. I have little faith in the AFL-CIO as they are more of a anti Trump affiliate of the main stream media.. From what I read was his plan was to give American Companies a lower rate that companies outsource.. But this story is just more Liberal spin.. And deceit...

    Another Democrat offering crushed by the party of NO. From a RTW state none the less.
