if they can make another nickel by moving to china, they will move to china. meanwhile, millions are working longer hours, for lower wages in the middle dallas and the country have been in decline for 35 years. i don't think the american people want to see that anymore. they want some moral responsibility on the part of corporate america to respect their employees, to respect the consumers of this country. >> i would like to -- i'm not taking issue with what you're aspiring for, i'm wondering, how do you force these companies to stop shipping jobs overseas? >> you use the leverage of the united states government. right now with united technologies, you say, you want government contracts, well, you know what, if you want government contracts, start treating your workers with respect. an example of this, last year, i worked with some other senators and house members to say that contractors with the federal government should pay workers a living wage. and we have some success. we put pressure on them. our president obama, i can't remember in fact, i think it was an $11, at least raised

assault. under the obama/clinton foreign policy russia has emerged as a threat. china looks with an eye on the lands of our allies in the region. a nuclear north korea and a near nuclear iran yearn to devastate our homeland and radical islamic terrorism unleashes an evil that threatens the world. this year two weeks before our party gatherers in cleveland all americans will celebrate the 240th birthday of the united states of america.
