I agree with Senator Brown completely.

This is a seldom agreement with him, but he is 100% correct.

Help him get this passed as it is important for American workers.

Like a fram filter....pay me now, or pay me later is a fitting argument.

"... fabric from North Carolina, manufacture it in California, and finish the product in Columbus."

East Coast to West Coast to the Midwest is 10 years of vacation trips for us. No wonder it's so expensive. Bet the exemptions are for Brown's buddies along the money trail.

At least he's trying....more than I can say of the other loafers.....
Everyone chastises the govt and accuses it isn't bringing jobs back to this country, and when some senator steps up to the plate he's shot down with shoddy remarks.
Who supports all the big businesses who ship jobs overseas?
HMMMMM!
I know that answer....do you?

It's hard to find American made.....even clothes...I'm so sick of it, and the quality is ....well there is no quality! I can sew better than they're made.
I will try to find a site listing American made products......I had it long time ago...

Even the Craftsman tools are all made in China and no longer lifetime guaranteed. You have one year warranty and they will send you a refurbished one which is also crap. The leftist claim it's because of free trade and the decline of union workers in America I wasn't so sure.

I do like to shop at Walmart they are owned by Americans and most workers are homegrown.
