Rep. Gardner Tells Constituent Worried About Outsourcing To Find Another Job

At a town hall meeting on Monday, freshman Rep. Cory Gardner (R-CO) struggled with a question from a constituent who was worried about losing her job to outsourcing. When the woman explained that her employer is shipping jobs to Vietnam, Gardner offered a vague response about the need to “create a business environment that actually starts creating American jobs.” The woman was unsatisfied, saying that she wants to keep her current job, as was another constituent who complained that corporations “get tax incentives” for sending jobs overseas. “If that company can succeed, I would hope that they would share their success with you,” Gardner answered. “If they are not, maybe that’s not a great company to work for.”

Holy balls, y’all. Maybe Mitt Romney isn’t trolling us, and the GOP is instituting a new honesty policy. Implicit support for outsourcing, explicit support for personhood… I will donate $5 to the first GOP candidate who goes for brutal truth-telling and uses “Kill the Poor” by Dead Kennedys as their campaign song.

And then I’ll donate $50 to their opponent.
