Missouri CEOs: Outsource Jobs then "Insource" Money to Bush

Kudos to John Hickey and the Missouri Citizen Education Fund. They conducted, in my opinion, a politically potent study on outsourcing jobs and campaign contributions. Here's a summary:

Executives and members of boards of directors of Missouri companies outsourcing jobs favor Bush over Kerry in their political contributions. It makes sense: Kerry's position is to close off-shore tax loopholes for some of these companies, and the Bush Administration has all but praised the practice of sending jobs overseas.

The study is nonpartisan. It tells a pretty clear story of what people in the Midwest are facing everyday: the threat of job layoffs while they watch the most expensive presidential race in history.

The report was released over Labor Day weekend and got some press. The Columbia Missourian had a great headline:

"CEOs who outsource Missouri jobs back Bush"

Need we say more?
