Hedge,

I think the media has overblown this whole deficit thing. If the dollar keeps falling, foreign companies will to have to raise prices if they want to make money in the US.

For the most part we have brought this all on ourselves. We keep making it harder and harder for businesses to compete so that they just simply pack it up and move production overseas. I think companies should be accountable, but at the same time, I think the government, companies, unions, and employees HAVE to work together. What good does it do for a union to get a rich contract if it makes the prices of their goods so expensive that people buy the foreign product?
