    I was invited to attend this meeting today and was happy to hear how much of what I said was repeted in some interviews that Alexi had given later in the day. He has a plan stop the hemerige of US jobs. It's fine time somebody will stand up and put a stop to US job being sent to China. Alexi you have my vote and lets hope your way of thinking is contagious and spreds like wild fire in Washington
