HOW SHOULD WE APPROACH POLICY TOWARD CHINA?I watched the debate tonight and when I heard this come out of Romney s mouth, I gave a big FYou and it just gave me more reason not to vote. It’s pretty sad when Romney is worried about the 20 thousand and quickly changed his words to 20 Million unemployed Farmers, coming to the city looking for work in China and not the unemployed in the country he lives. Why aren’t they talking about this and how can anyone in their right mind see past what was said and still support him?
00:00:00 WE HAVE TO REMAIN VIGILANT, AS I JUST SAID.
00:00:04 WITH RESPECT TO CHINA, CHINA IS BOTH AN ADVERSARY BUT ALSO A POTENTIAL PARTNER IN THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY IF IT’S FOLLOWING THE RULES.
00:00:15 MY ATTITUDE COMING INTO OFFICE WAS THAT WE ARE GOING TO INSIST THAT CHINA PLAYS BY THE SAME RULES AS EVERYBODY ELSE.
00:00:23 I KNOW AMERICANS HAVE SEEN IT.
00:00:26 JOBS BEING SHIPPED OVERSEAS, BUSINESSES AND WORKERS NOT GETTING A LEVEL PLAYING FIELD WHEN IT CAME TO TRADE.
00:00:35 THAT IS THE REASON WHY I SET UP A TRADE PASS — TASK FORCE TO GO AFTER CHEATERS WHEN IT CAME TO INTERNATIONAL TRADE.
00:00:44 THAT IS WHY WE HAVE BROUGHT MORE CASES AGAINST CHINA FOR VIOLATING TRADE RULES THAN THE OTHER — THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION HAD DONE IN TWO TERMS AND WE WON JUST ABOUT EVERY CASE THE FILE THAT HAS BEEN DECIDED.
00:00:58 RECENTLY, STEEL WORKERS IN OHIO AND THROUGHOUT THE MIDWEST ARE IN A POSITION NOW TO SELL STEEL TO CHINA BECAUSE WE WON THAT CASE.
00:01:06 WE HAD A TIRE CASE WHERE THEY WERE FLOODING US WITH CHEAP CHINESE TIRES.
00:01:13 WE PUT A STOP TO IT.
00:01:15 AS A CONSEQUENCE, SAVED JOBS THROUGHOUT AMERICA.
00:01:19 I HAVE TO SAY THAT GOVERNOR ROMNEY CRITICIZED ME FOR BEING TOO TOUGH IN THAT CASE, SAID THIS WOULD NOT BE GOOD FOR AMERICAN WORKERS.
00:01:29 I TELL YOU THOSE WORKERS DO NOT FEEL THAT WAY.
00:01:31 THEY FEEL AS IF THEY HAD — FINALLY THE ADMINISTRATION WAS GOING TO TAKE THIS ISSUE SERIOUSLY.
00:01:39 OVER THE LONG TERM FOR US TO COMPETE WITH CHINA, WE ALSO HAVE TO MAKE SURE WE ARE TAKING CARE BUSINESS AT HOME.
00:01:46 IF WE DO NOT HAVE THE BEST EDUCATION SYSTEM IN THE VAULT, IF WE DO NOT CONTINUE TO PUT MONEY INTO RESEARCH — SYSTEM IN THE WORLD, IF WE CANNOT CONTINUE TO PUT MONEY INTO RESEARCH, THAT IS HOW WE LOSE THE COMPETITION.
00:02:00 UNFORTUNATELY, GOVERNOR ROMNEY’S BUDGET AND HIS PROPOSALS WOULD NOT ALLOW US TO MAKE THOSE INVESTMENTS.
00:02:06 >> GOVERNOR PIERRE >> IT IS NOT A GOVERNMENT THAT MAKES BUSINESS SUCCESSFUL.
00:02:12 — >> GOVERNOR.
00:02:15 >> IT IS NOT A GOVERNMENT THAT MAKES BUSINESS SUCCESSFUL.
00:02:19 THE GREATEST NATIONAL THREAT IS A NUCLEAR IRAN.
00:02:23 LET’S TALK ABOUT CHINA. CHINA HAS AN INTEREST VERY MUCH LIKE OURS.
00:02:26 THAT IS THEY WANT TO — THEY WANT A STABLE WORLD.
00:02:32 THEY DO NOT WANT TO SEE THE WORLD BREAK OUT INTO VARIOUS FORMS OF CHAOS BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO MANUFACTURE GOODS AND PUT PEOPLE TO WORK.
00:02:41 THEY HAVE 20 MILLION PEOPLE COMING OUT OF FORMS EVERY YEAR.
The unemployment crisis in America is much worse than you are being told. Did you know that there are 100 million working age Americans that do not get up in the morning and go to work? No wonder why it seems like there are so many people that do not have jobs! According to the federal government, there are 12.6 million working age Americans that are considered to be “officially” unemployed, but there are another 87.8 million working age Americans that are not working either.
00:02:44 COMING INTO THE CITIES, NEEDING JOBS. More from C-Span
I, too, had been part of the long-term unemployed. People who didn’t know me assumed I wasn’t looking or wasn’t trying ‘hard enough.’ I wasn’t rusty, my skills weren’t outdated. As one honest HR person said, “We’re trained to avoid people with job gaps. We can’t just change that all at once.” The long-term unemployed have had four years to adjust to a new reality. It’s time business caught up.
