Create Jobs for Americans

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

A while ago I read Bill Gates and Mayor Michael Bloomberg were planning on donating a total of $500 million to reduce the incidence of smoking in developing countries, especially China.

I haven’t seen any recent information on this subject, but I believe they made a commitment to this ridiculous project.

Why are they concerned with the habits of the Chinese people?

Do the Chinese worry about our health when they send all of those tainted products to the U.S.?

Do the Chinese concern themselves with our economy when they flood our country with their products and eliminate U.S. jobs?

It is admirable for Bill and Mike to give back to society some of the many millions they have earned, but they should concern themselves with the plight of all the Americans who have lost their jobs because of the cheap goods manufactured in China and exported to the U.S.

With U.S. unemployment projected to approach 10 percent in 2009, they should be investing the $500 million in the U.S. to create jobs for Americans, the same American workers who made them wealthy.
