End Outsourcing and Currency Manipulation. Subject to the elimination of corporate tax loopholes and exploited exemptions and deductions as stated in grievance five, tax incentives will be permitted to entice businesses to hire our citizens rather than outsource jobs. Conversely, an “outsourcing tax” should be introduced to discourage businesses from sending jobs overseas and companies that continue to outsource will be barred from earning income in U.S. markets.

Tax incentives should also be offered to U.S. companies that invest in reconstructing the manufacturing capacity of the United States and hiring our citizens to produce and innovate. This country must again competitively manufacture everyday products in the United States rather than importing them from countries like China and India. 

To do business in the United States and gain access to the world’s largest and most lucrative market, corporations must make slightly less profit by hiring American workers and paying them a living wage rather than maximizing every penny of profit to the detriment of our society. 

Congress must implement legislation (see e.g. H.R. 639) to encourage China (which undervalues its currency, the Renminbi, by an estimated 40%) and our other trading partners to end currency manipulation and reduce the massive trade deficit. China’s access to U.S. markets should be replaced with U.S. companies until they are in compliance with trade and currency agreements.
