Indian-American Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has claimed that the Obama Administration's policies on trade and healthcare will lead to additional spending and send more "good paying" jobs to countries like India and China.
"The President said he didn't want us to fall behind countries like Brazil, China, India. But, I'll tell you what, if they pursue card check and cap and trade and this massive health care bill and more government borrowing and more government taxes, we will be sending even more good paying American jobs to those countries," Jindal told the Fox News.
His comments came as US President Barack Obama said in his first State of the Union address on Thursday that he will slash tax breaks to American firms that move jobs abroad.
