In the article they studied several companies outsourcing, and the long and short of it was that by outsourcing these jobs the net gain in income outweighed the amount of taxes they would have paid in payroll tax.
In other words, outsourcing made these companies better off (more profit) and thus they paid more in taxes a total win for the American public.
If you don't see that sending American dollars to China and the end result (service sector jobs to sell these cheap, low-quality products) of this ever increasing trend is a HUGE problem then I guess I can't say anything to enlighten you.
