    Angry OUR "shovel-ready jobs" going to the CHINESE!!

    OUR taxes are going to CHINESE construction firms AND workers instead of people and companies HERE!
    This story is from ABC News.

    From the article:

    "U.S. law does requires major infrastructure projects to give American companies preferential treatment under Buy America, but companies can opt out and choose a foreign company if there is a significant cost differential. In the Alaska case, officials contend that even with laws that favor domestic companies, the difference in cost was still too high."

    The state determines the winning bid, not the Fed. Very interesting article.
