Thank you sir for joining us mr.
Kucinich so can we thank you that we take this a little one step further -- if I we knew about the situation where -- the light -- plants were closing here GE was sending jobs overseas.
This wind is concerning to me this is a technology that we developed here in America taxpayers like we subs that subsidized a bunch of that development.
And now they're moving this technology this that the development of the technology the building of this aerospace unit to it to China is that right.
But that's right it's a synthetic vision technology that's going to enable.
The -- is Jumbo jetliners to be able to get to there destination safely.
It's a technology that was developed at NASA in cooperation with the private sector US taxpayers'.
Help to find the development of this technology to help created.
And now what she has done.
They're not only giving this technology to China.
But they're getting other technology which they haven't yet specified high technology.
To enable China to grow its aerospace industry.
Americas had the leadership and aerospace we've been the premier country and aerospace but now with.
General Electric whose boss is the head of the president's council on jobs and competitiveness.
Our jobs are going to China are high techs going to China what's going on here -- and what instead of -- -- get to Jeff Immelt and.
In just a second but you know -- it concerning enough is that that the jobs are headed over to China.
You know someone make the case it's -- either try any of -- you know short the bottom line it's cheaper to do business in China I get that but when you add in the fact that we were subsidizing it.
Through an asset and now the most important part of this the technology that we spend so much shot.
Forget the jobs remains -- technology.
The intellectual property is headed over there very concerning to me.
And that's why I spoke out -- Because that technology is skew our future.
Our ability -- technology that's part of America's inventive genius.
And if it's subsidized with the help -- US taxpayers.
Other ought to be some concern that the end product goes -- Benefit.
US businesses -- keep the jobs here.
Otherwise all we're doing is broadening -- a deficit of jobs.
Adding to unemployment creating.
Problems for our strongest you know it has been our mainstay industries such as aerospace.
And and enabling China they have more strength widens -- our debt deficit.
Everything everything that you could talk about here is wrong with this deal so what do we do here we have -- -- -- -- of GE for -- ten or eleven years Jeff Immelt he's done nothing but ship jobs overseas yet mr.
Obama caps them.
To be the job czar in the Obama administration.
This did not know what was going on is He gonna ask is this I'll scratch your back if you scratch mine GE.
Well He does have experience in jobs and competitiveness unfortunately its experience in moving jobs out of this country.
Because GE is lost about a fifth of its labor force cents a mr.
Immelt took over so I don't know why the president appointed him but I know one thing.
With fourteen million Americans out of work.
And and with America's hope for the future and that high technology to see someone who's head of the jobs and compared -- -- council.
Go ahead and move jobs out of this country move technology out of this country that is not acceptable someone has to say that and demanded that we stop.
Giving GE the ability to move technology to China.
Which is developed here and paid for with the help of -- tax dollars and do what's idea making stepped down make it however resigned fired him and or.
Make them pay it you know that that that 35% corporate tax rate that they're supposed to be tank.
Well that they're not paying their fair share of taxes they found ways out show the profits but this you know GE.
It's a good company it has good good workers let's say that.
But the policies that are set by the federal government.
Are not in keeping with the interest of the people of the United States it's the president and the administration that should be putting its foot down saying.
Hey what are you doing we're back at a stand for that it's the president and his administration who should be say we're gonna protect our high technology that's developed with.
The help of US taxpayers we're going to insist that if we create public private partnerships and I'm all for those kind of partnership.
We should let -- serve as an incubator of high technology.
Design engineer and then get -- to the private sector through sale or license let's bring millions of jobs doing that but -- him and America not in China.
I want to.
Switch gears just from an exam don't have a lot of time with the earlier on the Fox News Channel I heard.
A discussion you had during the day saying that mr.
Qaddafi while market out his.
Has asked you to step in -- had asked you to step in the Libya conflict at some point sir.
Any net anything new on that front and by the way.
cannot -- did turn to you and say.
Would you president Kucinich or congressman Kucinich whichever may be -- asking you for asylum and America would you offer.
Well you know -- the first of law.
There should have been an effort made immediately to stop the violence and come up with a deal that we've included.
-- is movement out of the physician -- is and I Unita and I think both sides would have agreed with that frankly.
At the end -- -- up to Libya to determine.
Gadhafi is going to be that's not sources and that we that I get that I understand and that's that's exactly what I -- get the most American people in most the world agrees to but.
If you were to say.
Can I have asylum in America by the -- has a house.
Right across the river from here in Fort -- New Jersey if He said can I go move back there and would it wouldn't looking for political asylum would you offer.
You know -- we never got to that discussion and frankly I think that He should be able to find a way to stay in Libya but not in a position.
Of running -- country.
However that's a decision that's out of our hands let's go back to the beginning.
We should have -- What is this we're gonna intervene everywhere in the world we don't like a leader we don't have enough problems here at home we just finished talking about our technology being move out of the country.
About fourteen million on -- -- unemployed and we're gonna pretend that we're gonna tell other countries how -- should run their business are you kidding me.
I mean this is -- this is I didn't a good example.
Of overreaching on a part of this administration sort of getting involved in things that we have no business getting it or -- you've been one of the most outspokenly liberal congressmen.
Left leaning congressman since I've been.
Since I've been around all the sudden your your trashing mr.
Obama's jobs are your trash -- -- -- job policy and is foreign policy.
Are you run for president.
No I I wonder if mr.
Because we need a dynamic approach to creating jobs we need to get out of these wars we need to make sure that America has.
Which will make our economy strong again right now we're just drifting were -- this is about.
And they I might do politically this is about what's manifestly clear to the American people.
Where in stagnation economically we've got to get our economy going again.
And -- Today's report in Washington Post says the administration still trying to figure out.
-- they're gonna take that creating jobs right 00 boy right now -- -- -- Will welcome youth open arms on the right rivers had Dennis Kucinich thank you for spending some time this.
