in contrast the flood of unskilled immigrants, barriers denied entry to highly skilled foreign workers needed in technology industries. regulatory red tape and suffocating regulations blocked business innovation. there are also prohibitions to using domestic energy resources. and washington's out of control spending is obstructing economic development. sadly the project claims there's no meaningful economic strategy in washington to turn this to comment go to comment go behindththeh [ cellphone ringing ] it's just another scandal from danny tarkanian. tarkanian was the corporate lawyer for those with an elaborate scam that tricked hundreds of seniors
