I wish the jobs hadn't first gone south, congressman, because that's where they went first. And they went to the right-to-work states, you know where they went, where the unions didn't have any power. You could get people to work for nothing and the stuff wasn't that good that was made down there. But that was the first stop on the trip away [of jobs leaving the country].

My uncle, my grandfather grew up in north Philly. I was living there, the neighborhood's now African-American. But none of those jobs are there. They were there when I was there. You get on the subway, two stops away you had a real job.You get into Baltimore, you can't find a job with a short commute. And that's, to me, the problem that's behind all of this.
