It's for America Asshole !

A couple of problems with this ! I'm no Economist ! but I do work in the field of Construction ! Some things that some people don't understand is that when Companies like the auto industry Go down like they have , It affects Many other trades !
Trades like Carpet , hardware (Screws , bolts , latches ) tire , paint , glass , steel , plastic ! Many , many more ! Ultimately ,shutting down my trade ! When no one is making things their is no need for Buildings !
The auto industry does not make all their products themselves ! They contract it out !
Knowing this , Is it a good Idea to keep giving our Jobs Away ? Or allow Foreign Products into the country For use on American jobs over American Products ?
When we as Americans have to start worrying about what third world degenerate Country we have to prop up , We will lose ! That means everything ! It's happening right Now ! Senator McCain , You are officially on the wrong side of the tracks ! I almost believed in you But Now You are no better than the worst Leftist Libtard !

Senator McCain:
Sen. John McCain, an Arizona Republican, urged the Senate to go further and specifically bar any Buy American provision as part of the stimulus package. But senators rejected his amendment by a vote of 65-31.

"The Buy American provisions ... have echoes of the disastrous Smoot-Hawley tariff act," McCain said, referring to 1930s legislation often blamed for prolonging the Great Depression. "It sends a message to the world that the United States is going back to protectionism."

Protectionism ? How about kiss my ass !!!!!
Senate OK's softened "Buy American" plan

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate voted on Wednesday to soften a "Buy American" plan in its $900 billion stimulus bill after President Barack Obama expressed concern the original language could trigger a trade war.

Senators, on a voice vote, approved an amendment requiring the Buy American provisions be "applied in a manner consistent with U.S. obligations under international agreements."

The change gives Canada, Mexico, the European Union and certain other major trading partners some comfort they would be exempted from a strict requirement in the bill that all public works projects funded by the stimulus package use only U.S.-made iron, steel and manufactured goods.

The House of Representatives has passed a nearly identical Buy America provision without such a guarantee.
