The Bring Jobs Home Act would have offered an incentive for bringing jobs back to America and eliminated the tax break received by American companies for sending jobs overseas. "I can imagine that Washington lobbyists and special interests are happy with Risch's vote," Mitchell said, "but Idahoans should be angry. Idaho jobs will continue to go overseas, and Idaho taxpayers will continue to foot the bill. That's just plain wrong. Idaho lost more than 18,000 jobs to China alone during one ten year period."
Mitchell pointed out that on his website, Risch claims to support job growth. "Maybe he means job growth in Asia," Mitchell said, "because that's what his vote yesterday does. It hurts job growth at home and promotes outsourcing of American jobs to China and elsewhere."
