Another thing thats pushing manufacturing away is energy cost. Especially under a leftest like Obama. His huge green energy push will "necessarily" drive the cost of energy up. Running large energy hog mills and plants cost money. Try running a steel mill on solar and wind. They are not giving up on the global warming scam and will continue to push the green energy and it will raise cost of energy. Between the EPA and the green push we will see it get much worse.
