Bachmann at Manufacturing Jobs Forum
Michele Bachmann participated in the Republican Presidential Forum on Manufacturing in Pella, Iowa yesterday. She had this to say about manufacturing jobs:
In other words, we need the federal government to get off our back when it comes to taxes, you're taxing us to death, you're making us uncompetitive because United States manufacturing is 20% more difficult, less competitive you might say than their nine leading competitors around the world. Next, the regulatory burden is out of control. Steve Jobs recently said this to President Obama, he said you're killing us with regulations. It's true. Tort reform is a must do. It costs our GDP two percent of GDP just to deal with tort reform and lawsuit abuse.
