Is President Obama Dropping the Ball on Manufacturing?
Despite the fact that President Obama is in Cleveland today to discuss his "Winning the Future" agenda for small businesses, Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) is not satisfied with what the President has accomplished for American manufacturing.
Sen. Brown told TPM's Brian Buetler in an interview that "The President's done more on manufacturing than his predecessors, but not nearly enough. That needs a real strategy on making things. We ought to make things in this country. And it's a strategy on a different trade policy, a different tax policy, an emphasis on working with small manufacturers."
ManufactureThis applauds Sen. Brown for his steadfast work in fighting for American manufacturing, and we just hope that the Obama administration will take the necessary steps to fully get on board.
