Obama for America
I'm Barack Obama, and I approve this message.
Obama: Ordinary people all across the country are struggling from paycheck to paycheck.
If the plant moves to China, and you've been working there for 20, 30 years and suddenly you have the rug pulled out from under you, and you don't have healthcare and you don't have a pension. You’re on your own.
We've got to stop giving tax breaks to companies that are moving overseas, and give those tax breaks to companies that are investing right here in Iowa, in the United States of America.
Enough is enough.

spot on this subject.
From the Obama campaign press release:
The Bush Administration has done little to protect Americans whose livelihoods are being threatened by globalization and changes in technology. By failing to enforce U.S. trade agreements, overseas companies and workers have been given an unfair and sometimes illegal advantage over American workers.
