An unprecedented raft of bills to control foreign investment in the United States is before Congress, and international business groups call it a sign of a mounting backlash against their role in the American economy. The populist sentiment follows a huge surge in the past decade of foreign purchases of U.S. businesses and real estate. Foreign investment has skyrocketed in the last 10 years to $401 billion, from only $89 billion in 1980.

James Exon (D-Neb.) called the pay scales arrogant in a system that is asking the taxpayers to provide a financial life preserver.
