At today's #SOSJobs rally in Granite City, IL, U.S. Congressman Rodney Davis (R-IL) led the crowd in a booming cheer, to send a “big, loud message to Washington”: “American steel means jobs.”  
Rep. Davis urged Washington to pay attention:

We need to focus on jobs jobs, jobs.  There is no Republican or Democatic way to create jobs.  It’s the right way.
Let's send a message to the Administration.  Foreign steel should not come to the U.S. to create jobs overseas.
Send a message to Washington that America needs to be energy independent.

Watch live.
