Obama: U.S. Businesses Have Responsibility To Hire American Workers, Pay Decent Wages
Unfortunately, the responsibility is moral and patriotic – but not legally binding. Businesses do not exist to benefit society or fuel the economy. They exist to make money. They have proven that they will not hesitate to poison people or put the country in jeopardy if they can profit from it.
In the end, a country is embodied by it’s citizens. We pay for the profits of businesses, and for the consequences of their failures. It is because, in the end, the people pay all the bills, because while businesses come and go the people still remain – and must deal with the messes businesses leave behind – that we the people have the real need and moral right to government by, for, and of the people. A government that is the instrument of the people, that offsets the power businesses have over the everyday lives of the people.
Only anarchists, criminals, and enemies would advocate letting businesses run the country.
