Americans Leaving The US In Record Numbers

In this article it states:
According to statistics from the US State Department, around 6.4 million Americans are either working or studying overseas, which Gallup says is the largest number ever for such statistic....
the number of Americans between the ages of 25 and 34 living abroad managed to surge from barely 1 percent to over 5.1 percent. For those under the age span wishing to move overseas, the percentage has jumped in the same amount of time from 15 percent to 40.
... Other industries, significantly American, have been relocated as well; the ending of NASA’s space shuttle program this year left many intelligent US citizens with little choice but to continue in their field outside of the States.

It's pretty sad really - the brain drain that is going on.
I wouldn't have ever thought that our youth would find better opportunities outside of the US - and yet that has come true.

Washington's policies have created this and have essentially sent our youth and our businesses packing.

How tragic.

It doesn't bode well for this country at all.
