Phoning It In

In February, an Indian news agency reported that Obama is no fan of outsourcing business:

Continuing to play the anti-outsourcing card, Democrat presidential front-runner Barack Obama on Wednesday said while America cannot “shy away” from globalisation, it would have to take measures to ensure that jobs are not shipped overseas.

“We have to stop providing tax breaks for companies that are shipping jobs overseas and give those tax breaks to companies that are investing here in the United States of America,” Obama said in during a debate with rival Senator Hillary Clinton in Cleaveland [sic], Ohio.

Some outsourcing is better than others, of course.
