I believe that creating jobs and helping the economy grow should be America’s top priority. Unfortunately, the Republicans in Congress don’t seem to agree. It’s been 205 days since Republicans took control of the House and in that time Speaker Boehner has not posted any legislation to help put America back to work. In fact, the Republicans have devoted themselves to budget cuts that hurt working families and to protecting tax cuts for the wealthy, tax breaks for Big Oil and tax loopholes for companies that send jobs overseas.
I am working with my Democratic colleagues to advance an economic plan we call “Make It In America.” This is a multi-part plan that help rebuild the manufacturing base in America with good jobs and companies that will contribute to long-term economic growth.
To highlight the Make It In America agenda I visited Seimens in Piscataway yesterday to showcase a manufacturing success story. Siemens has brought jobs back from China to a facility that combines manufacturing, Research and Development and marketing. Watch the video below to find out more about my trip to Seimens and the Make It In America agenda.
