Should we keep giving tax breaks to U.S. companies to shift jobs overseas?
Incredibly, that's now a debate in Washington.

The American middle class is getting crushed and closed off, while huge
corporations get tax breaks for shipping our jobs overseas.

Here's just one example: General Electric paid no – zilch, nada, zero –
federal income taxes while making more than $10 billion in profits and
shipping thousands of jobs overseas. GE has parked $102 billion in profits
off-shore. And GE is far from alone. American companies are sitting on some

that we are giving huge tax breaks to multinational companies.

share your story if you or someone you know has been personally
affected by a company outsourcing jobs. We'll be delivering your petition
signatures and your stories to Sen. Stabenow's office to show the
groundswell of support for her bill – and to provide personal testimony
showing how outsourcing has hurt everyday Americans.

The time to end this corporate gravy train is now. Sign our petition, and
then, share your story if a company outsourcing jobs overseas has
personally affected you or someone you know.
