Jobs created overseas aren't helping lower our debt

A sign on a van saying, "Unions means jobs" shows just how a lot of people's minds are in control of the government. The words are certainly true, except they leave out one important fact.

They don't tell that the jobs are created in China, Japan, Mexico, Canada, South Korea, Taiwan or that the product is better than "Made in America." Maybe someday folks will be onto the truth of why we are $16 trillion in debt.

The big cost of a small amount of work is not making better times for the majority of citizens in USA as proven by the $16 trillion debt and the people losing their homes because of high taxes.

A few impeachments instead of elections would probably help us get back to better times.
