Don't blame the Gov. for killing an industry without looking in the mirrow at another killer, if your industry went South how did it die? Is it alive & well or did it die in Mexico? I still stand by what I said, why should the tax payers give people new job training, do we all get our turn at training? Do you think your industry should be held accountable for some job training costs, why the Gov.?
Well, actually, it is my employer paying mostly because employers pay UI not the government.
Why should the taxpayer be turned into venture capitalists? How much money did the government give to the solar power and other renewable power industries?
Should we have give Solyndra another half a billion? How much is enough to get them up and running?
