Obama’s Job Czar Sends American Jobs To China

August 5, 2011 4:32 pm 17 comments

The man Obama chose to help create new jobs in America is Jeff Immelt, CEO of General Electric. GE was recently in the public spotlight for not paying a cent of taxes, and now in an even more ironic twist, he’s sending American jobs to China.

In a recent announcement, GE said it is moving the company’s headquarters in charge of X-Ray technology to China. In an effort to increase sales to the giant Asian nation, and cut costs in the process, the largest manufacturer of imaging machines in the world is closing its US headquarters after 115 years. Until now, GE’s X-ray business was headquartered in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

“A handful” of top managers will move to the Chinese capital and there won’t be any job cuts, Anne LeGrand, vice president and general manager of X-ray for GE Healthcare, said in an interview. The headquarters will move from Waukesha, Wisconsin, amid a broader parent-company plan to invest about $2 billion across China, including opening six “customer innovation” and development centers.

Should this be the focus of Obama’s unconstitutional and unaccountable “Job Czar?” Should we be happy that they just sent American workers to China instead of laying them off? Only in this devastated economy can this possibly be seen as a positive.

    Doesn’t this call for a boycott of ALL GE products –including light bulbs????

  • The Blue Collar Man

    What happened to the other story about GE building Jets in China? Allowing all our latest Avionics tech to be given to China, and the Jets being built there, competing against American aircraft companys. To make matters worse, the tech will go to China’s Military.
    How Fk smart is this move?
    Obumbler is a non- thinking, non-caring, disastor!!!!!
    AND GE PAID “O” TAXES FOR THIS?

  • Suzie Duggudder

    Are you surprised????????? Really???????????? This is the same person who closed incandescent light manufacturing in the US so that light bulbs could be made that can possibly contaminate your home with mercury if you break the bulb. And where are these bulbs being manufactured???????????? CHINA!!!!

  • WHO will be “our hero” to start impeachment proceedings on the idiot in the White House? We all talk about it, post about it, email about it, editorialize about it, but there is never any action! When will this stop? Ever? Never? Soon it’ll be TOO LATE for America!

  • ON THE SURFACE, IT SOUNDS GREAT THAT WORKERS WILL BE GOING TO CHINA AND NOT LAID OFF. BUT I FEEL MORE EMPLOYEES WILL ELECT NOT TO GO AND ACCEPT RETIREMENT AND/OR BE LAID OFF…IN ANY EVENT, IN MY OPINION, IT IS A DISGRACE THAT THIS ACTION IS BEEN OVERSEEN BY A “JOB CZAR” APPOINTED BY THE PRESIDENT WITHOUT CONFIRMATION OR VETTING BY OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS…

  • Despicable! The Chinese will end up owning this company. Check out what they did to Fellowes shredding machine manufacturing company. Chinese locked the gates and carted off all the inventory and machinery.

  • Douglas Abrams

    This was a necessary business decision in the opinion of GE management. Since when do we start being critics of American businesses who make decisions which are in the best interest of that particular business? Many other American businesses are doing the same as growth prospects are attractive in China and other countries.Has anyone noticed this is NOT the Medical Systems business of GE which remains in Milwaukee, just the XRay part which happens to be the oldest part of the business.We should be concentrating on stopping the job killing reulations pouring out of the Obama Administration many of which are instrumental in chasing companies out of the country.

  • I look forward to the day when Obama’s term of office is ended. He and every one of his “czars” deserve the same end that of the last Czar of Russia.
    I hate everyone of them!

  • Obama loves Amerika

  • Liberals will claim the article is a flat out lie. There is no doubt in my mind about that! They believe that Bush was owned by GE and the oil industry. I can’t wait to see the return of McCarthyism in America!

  • charles a pembroke

    How does he get away with it?I understand the mercury bulbs will be made there also.I guess because of no regulations for manufactoring.Wouldn’t it be nice to have no rules for our factorys?

  • John Williams

    Immelt is just another one of Nobama’s picks in his quest to destroy the USA and all it has stood for since its inception.

  • Alexander Shillinglaw

    When Boeing announced that it was going to build its newest plane in Washington State and in South Carolina, there were cries of outrage from the labor union. Where are the cries about sending U.S. jobs to China ? At least, the South Carolina jobs were help the U.S. economy. I can’t see how China’s employment situation will help us at all.

  • I find this ironic, and totally not required to bring their technology to China in these days of the Internet.

    Immelt has proven in the past not to real patriotic. If you have any doubt this action should prove otherwise.

  • just another example of the left and obama, right on track with the redistribution of wealth program! WHEN IS THE MEDIA AND CONGRESS GOING TO GRILL OBAMAS ASS!

  • GE is doing what the tax code makes in their best interest. Taxes discorage jobs not incorage them. Just look at at the trillions of dollors American companies are holding off shore. We need to make it advantagus for companies to create jobs in America and disadvantage overseas. Time foe Washington to change and wake up.

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    What type of Republican Leader do you want in 2015?

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services Sentences Baby To Death ON 9/11/2015

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.

    A baby has been sentenced to death and will be executed on Friday, September 11, 2015 and Arkansas Department of HUMAN SERVICES (DHS) – Division of Children and Family Services- Central Office will facilitate the delivery of the baby’s 10-year-old to the abortion clinic.

    On August 29, 2015 20-year-old Justin Smith was arrested and charged with three counts of rape and one count of endangering the welfare of a minor. His “alleged” victim is a 10-year-old.
