Transcript of Donnelly’s speech in the Senate today:
I rise today in support of the amendment I offered to address the outsourcing of American jobs.
Currently, American companies that ship jobs to foreign countries can still claim massive tax breaks. That’s wrong and we should claw back incentives and prohibit companies from receiving tax breaks for outsourcing jobs.
My End Outsourcing Amendment is common sense for taxpayers—supporting companies that invest in American workers, not those shipping jobs to foreign countries. I urge all of our colleagues to support my amendment.
