Happy Manufacturing Day.

Posted by scapozzola on 10/05/2012

We wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a Happy Manufacturing Day.  It's an opportunity for all of us to salute the nearly 12 million men and women nationwide who take pride in building the things that make America great.

American manufacturing has been on the rebound, but we've hit a few setbacks lately.  Today's jobs report is the latest evidence that we have a long way to go.

If you live in a swing state, odds are that you've seen President Obama and Governor Romney talk about manufacturing and China.  But if you tuned-in to Wednesday night's debate, and were looking for more details, you were probably as disappointed as we were.  That's not good enough.  Let's make sure the next debate puts manufacturing and China front and center.

The Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) has put forward a bold plan to revitalize America's industrial sector.  It includes proposals that both Democrats and Republicans can support.  We think it's a plan both candidates can and should embrace.

Tax incentives

Does you organization encourage through lobbyist , for the government regulators to ease tax regulations on manufactures. Enabling you to Compete with (communist Chinas) vast virtually free labor market. Or do you want futher restrictions (Trade Tarriffs) placed on all products produced from China. I Broadcast a Conservative talk radio program, that only solicits Products and services that are American Made. Just what is your Mission statement to our Government? In my humble opinion, we should make the Tax so exhorbitant , that the products sit on the shelves. How do you propose to keep your manufactureing costs competitive. Are a majority of manufactureing jobs Union?

Respectfully, Joseph Templeton
