The Constitution of the United States — Section. 8
The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;
To borrow Money on the credit of the United States;
To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;
Congress is suppose to raise Taxes —
To provide for the general Welfare.
It’s in the Constitution!
Looks like the Congress can clap down on Foreign Trade too —
Hmmm? I wonder if the includes “the exporting of Jobs” too?
Outsourcing effects the “general Welfare” too, right?
(It’s hard to “be well” — without a Job.)
