Mitt Romney made a speech recently that said he'd cut regulations to increase job growth. I'm all for that—one reason some employers aren't hiring is because of government red tape
, and environmental regulations that make their work illegal or impossible. But Romney doesn't seem clear on who these jobs are for:
"Romney also proposed increasing opportunities for talented foreigners to find work here, proposing an expanded H1B visa program for skilled workers."

Just a reminder—what employers want when they're hiring H1B Visa holders is not talented foreigners, but cheap ones.
