The Bring Jobs Home Act

The Senate votes today on the Bring Jobs Home Act | Alliance for American Manufacturing. The Bring Jobs Home Act was a bill brought up on the Senate floor for a vote on July 19th to stop the tax breaks that help companies ship jobs overseas. Sadly, it was filibustered by G.O.P. Senators. I don’t see much happening with the Congress until the election is over. Even if the bill added incentives (tax breaks) to bring jobs home and tax breaks to help fledgling manufacturing plants, I still do not think it would pass, because of the level of dysfunction in Congress, even though 90% of Americans agree with bringing jobs back to America. This control by a very few who act only in their own self interests can only last for so long.
