Jobs for American Companies

If the administrations, Federal, State and Local are so concerned about keeping jobs in the US and stimulating the economy, then why in the world is the tollroad project in Dallas going to a Spainish company?

You hear little snipit's every now and then, but not an ounce of outrage. I don't get it.

No sé la respuesta a esa pregunta, pero una qué gran pregunta es. Esperanza segura I que entienden que no habrá rebajas si el acero utilizan no es los E.E.U.U. hechos. ¿Espuma de Dallas quizá?

Sorry wrong website, What I meant was.

I do not know the answer to that question, But what a great question it is.
I sure hope they understand there will be no rebates if the steel they use is not US made.
Dallas scum maybe?

I didn't know anything about it. I know they sold ours to overseas investors, probably terrorists. It's funny how we paid for that, they just sell it, we never see a dime from it and are still paying a toll when we were originally supposed to stop paying a toll when it was paid for

Well if pelosi can take her business overseas, why should noone else do the same thing? Lead by example, I always say.

I had no idea she had a business overseas. I'll have to do some research on that.
