War is big business. :cool:

Why couldn’t Obama put the same pressure on them?


#4

Wouldn’t it have been fun to have been a fly on the wall during those discussions! :smiley:


#5

To learn art of the deal?!


#6

He makes deals! It’s what he does! :thumbsup:
I am liking this already.


#7

Because Indiana is a red state and transforming 1,000 factory workers into 1,000 welfare recipients boosts the DNC’s voter base in Indiana.


#8

It’s a start. I wish them success and hope that the saved 1,000 jobs turn into 2,000 more. :thumbsup:

It wasn’t pressure. It was a bribe. “A source, who is familiar with the plan, said state incentives are part of the deal.


#14

I’m happy to hear jobs will be staying in the US but I want to actually know what the deal contains before I give it a :thumbsup:


#15

Of course there are incentives. There are always incentives. That’s part of making any deal, whether it’s keeping jobs in the U.S. or buying a car. I just wonder if one of the incentives was, “You move those jobs out of the country, you’ll never get another federal contract, at least as long as I am in office.”


#16

I am ok with that. :rolleyes:


#17

I guess we will find out soon enough.


#18

Yeah, me too :smiley:


#19

Nothing wrong with making a deal by offering a little corporate welfare! :rolleyes:


#20

As long as it’s corporate, apparently not.
