What does Congressman Henry Waxman decide is more important than this? After he promised to hold hearings on the matter he has retracted his promise. He is going to hold hearings on baseball instead because kids need "good role models." He obviously isn't one of those "good role models," breaking his promises, and defending corruption.
Here's one of the best sources that is keeping coverage of this matter:

WorldnetDaily grills Ron Paul on his positions. Ron Paul wants to pull our troops out Iraq and stop threatening Iran. He points out that the number one reason for terrorism is occupation from a foreign power.Wolfowitz even connected the dots between our military bases in Saudi Arabia, resulting in Muslime outrage and 9/11. He wanted to move the bases out of Muslim holy land and into Iraq which we are in the process of doing. Ron Paul is strongly against further consolidation of the United States, Canada and Mexico in what would become the North American Community. It would be the next step to an European Union style government. The European Union was the successor to something called the European Economic Community.
He wants to take away the incentives from people to come here illegally and end birthright citizenship. Justin Raimondo of Antiwar.com draws interesting parallels between the American Empire's immigration policy and the Roman Empire's. The Romans relied on Mercenaries just like the United States. We have over 100,000 taxpayer paid private contractors in Iraq right now.

“I tried to avoid this war,” Powell said at the Aspen Ideas Festival in Colorado. “I took him through the consequences of going into an Arab country and becoming the occupiers.”There have been other instances where other people have come forward saying that Powell disapproved of President Bush and his Neoconservative allies but this is the first time he brought it out into the open. It is no wonder that he called the Neocons "F-- crazies" in a conversation with British Foreign Minister Jack Straw. The Neocons want to maintain the American Empire and bring democracy to those who don't understand it. They have a website called the Project of a New American Century online.
Bush kicked Powell out early in his second term because he wanted ideological purity and had no more use for Colin Powell after he went to the altar of the UN to sacrifice himself for a cause he didn't believe in. Bush used one of his servants to deliver the message to Colin Powell that he was fired:
"The president would like to make a change," [Chief of Staff Andrew] Card said, using a time-honored formulation that avoided the words "resign" or "fire." He noted briskly that there had been some discussion of having Powell remain until after Iraqi elections scheduled for the end of January, but that the president had decided to take care of all Cabinet changes sooner rather than later. Bush wanted Powell's resignation letter dated two days hence, on Friday, November 12, Card said, although the White House expected him to stay at the State Department until his successor was confirmed by the Senate.Colin Powell as well as other Generals have pointed out that the problem in Iraq is political so Bush can surge and mistakenly train and arm the Mahdi army but his goals are probably not going to be met unless he wants destruction and mayhem, so he can bleed the American Treasury for the Military Industrial Complex. The Iraqi Government has yet to try to reconcile the differences among Iraqis.

Technology companies want cheap labor:
It is interesting this has gone on for years.
About 58 percent of the $360-million worth of software that flowed out of India last year ended up in the U.S. That tiny drop hardly makes a splash in a $92.8-billion market. But several trends may propel exports beyond the $1-billion mark as early as 1997. The single most important factor, Pawar asserts, is the support of the Indian government, which has eased tariffs and restrictions, subsidized numerous software technology parks and export zones, and doled out five-year tax exemptions to software exporters. "The opening of the Indian economy is acting as a very big catalyst," Pawar says.
It certainly seems to have attracted the attention of large multinational firms eager to reduce both the cost of the software they need and the amount they build in-house. The primary cost of software is labor. Indian programmers come so cheap-$125 per unit of software versus $925 for an American developer, according to Jones-that some companies fly an entire team to the U.S. to work on a project. More than half of India's software exports come from such "body shopping," although tightened U.S. visa restrictions are stanching this flow.
Another factor, Pawar observes, is a growing trust in the quality of overseas project management. "In the past two years, American companies have become far more comfortable with the offshore concept," he says. This is a result in part of success stories from leaders like Citicorp, which develops banking systems in Bombay, and Motorola, which has a top-rated team of more than 150 programmers in Bangalore building software for its Iridium satellite network.
