Members of Congress stand up for American Manufacturing
We wanted to take this opportunity to note some of the things that members of congress from both sides of the aisle have been doing lately to improve American manufacturing and to end China’s illegal currency manipulation:
Rep. Tim Murphy (R-PA) and Rep. Peter Visclosky (D-IN) introduced the Buy American Steel First Act
Rep. John Larson (D-CT) held a rally with local machinists in support of CT manufacturing.
Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) pushed for a crackdown on Chinese currency manipulation
Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) introduced legislation that will give the Obama administration the resources and the discipline to enforce U.S. trade laws.
Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) announced Legislation to support fuel efficient vehicle research in Michigan.
Rep. J. Randy Forbes (R-VA) called on Sec. Gates to submit overdue military reports on China, because enforcing trade laws, stopping currency manipulation, and ultimately rebalancing our economies is in our national security interest.
Sen. John Thune (R-SD) stood up for for U.S. producers like Adee Honey Farms in Bruce, SD.
And of course, we want to applaud the House Democrats for launching and supporting their new “Make it in America” agenda.
