This did NOT start under Bush! This has been ongoing since the 1960's via illegal trade policies, foriegn dumping, EPA. tax structuring, and labor disbutes.

The ITC ( International Trade Commission ) has historical archives demonstrating the past Democratic administrations of lifting foriegn tariffs and attacking American manufacturers with fines and environmental mandates. The REagan Administration was sued by the National Democratic Committee for imposing large tariffs from illegal steel dumping on American markets.

I suggest all to reserach steel history and especially the Steel Anti Dumoing Laws written under teh Nixon administration to protect the American work and Section 201 Anti Dumping. Take it from there and Clinton's attack on Wheeling Pitt and the Weirton Steel betrayal !!

Anyone know what they have been doing at the Mingo plant? I notice there have been 10 or so cars in the lot on a daily basis. Who do you contact to get a job there?
