State Of the Union – Administrations Actions Don’t Match the Words

The NAM Press Release on the State of the Union and the Administration’s discussion of manufacturing is dead on.

Here is a sample:

“The Obama Administration must take action to put an end to the rampant overregulation and overreach by the National Labor Relations Board and the Environmental Protection Agency. We need action on comprehensive tax reform that will lower the corporate tax rate so that we can compete for investment across the globe. Tax reform must also lower the rates of the 65 percent of manufacturers that file as individuals for the good of the economy and jobs. An aggressive trade policy that opens new markets is essential so America does not stand idle while other nations move into those markets. As consumers of one-third of our nation’s energy supply, manufacturers embrace a true ‘all-of-the-above’ energy policy – not one subject to the political winds.”
