It's about jobs not politics

Sen. John McCain talked about the Michigan job flight and told the state that “the jobs aren’t coming back”.

Tough talk, and the truth. Just like the textile jobs that left New England for the south and then fled to Mexico, and points east once the jobs are gone and the factories closed, the cost of restarting is just too high.

My question for Senator McCain is - As a leader with vision, what’s next?

Since the federal government set up the rules that make shipping those jobs out of the US cost effective for the businesses, how will the federal government step up, accept responsibility, and restructure the rules to create replacement jobs that pay as well as the ones lost?

If you think that it’s not the governments job to take these steps, read the preamble to the US Constitution:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquillity, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. (Italics added)

So, Senator John, what is your plan?
