    I agree with most of what you have said here, especially the green card for graduates. The main problem I have is with the H1B visa’s. Streamlining H1B’s for start ups would be OK, but the vast majority of H1B’s are used by the indian contracting firms (TATA, InfoSys, etc.), to substantially undercut salaries and rates for US firms and employees. This has a direct impact on people willing or wanting to take CS degrees.

    Mike, I agree with you. It has been completely hijacked by these outsourcing vendors.
