  • Dear sir:
    May I reply to Mr. Johnson’s critique of my letter?
    Mr. Johnson, each person has their own viewpoint. I believe if a corporation is already profitable, there’s no excuse for closing plants to increase wealth.
    You stated Romney outsourced only a few jobs. Does that make it easier on those jobless employees?
    Back home, I saw the closing of six General Motors plants, the National Cash Register Co., the Dayton Tire Co., and the McCalls printing company. Those jobs were sacrificed to satisfy the greed of the new generation of “Business executives and investors.” On average, they were already making 20 times their employees’ earnings. “Tens of millions” workers, their families, and the merchants they supported suffered the consequences. They left behind decaying communities.
    Robots or an outsourced workforce don’t buy goods, pay taxes or purchase homes. Small businesses and communities require wage earners to survive.
    You criticized the President for forcing GM and Chrysler to reorganize. You stated he harmed the investors. All three of America’s automobile manufacturers are stronger, more efficient and profitable than ever. We’ve had 29 straight months of job growth. The stock market is thriving.
    You blame the Democrat-controlled Senate for the gridlock in Congress. The Senate passes legislation. The House and the party of “No” refuse to vote on it. Why? To destroy Obama. That’s insanity.
    The President hasn’t denied you of your “liberty.” You’re as free as you’ve ever been.
    Happines, that’s your responsibility to obtain.
    Sincerely,
        Tom Davis
