If the US government is going to penalize US companies from investing in other countries by building factories and employing workers there and also penalize foreign companies for not investing in the US by building factories and employing workers here, then I suppose the government should penalize any American who owns stock in a foreign company or owns a foreign-made car or smartphone, or decides to travel overseas on vacation or business… Or builds golf courses and hotels outside of the US. All of those activities have the effect of creating jobs abroad as opposed to here in the good ‘ole USofA. Under such twisted logic, anyone who does anything that favors workers in other countries instead of workers in the US should be considered unpatriotic or perhaps even a traitor. Now, how genuinely stupid is that?
