You introduce a bill that says if more than 35% of your manufacuring process is by out of country labor than you get taxed 30% of your full retail pricing for it...if more than 70% than it jumps to 50%

Watch how quickly these fu*ks bring jobs back here....watch how quickly they change their business practices...
This is craziness.

Ignoring the fact that America doesn't have the infrastructure in place to handle those manufacturing jobs, forcing American companies to pay American labor costs would quickly destroy American business.

Outsourced labor cost is a fraction of what American labor costs would be and it comes without all the American labor policies that reduce output. A greatest effect of your idea would materialize outside of America where there would be no tax to equalize competition cost and companies using non-American laborers would have a RIDICULOUS competitive/pricing edge over American centralized companies. Companies would still have to outsource labor jobs to stay competitive, even more-so probably.

The likely outcomes of your plan would be American consumers facing quadruple cost of products and less manufacturing jobs to choose from. Your idea would likely send our country into a depression.
