NAM Video to Help Manufacturers Impact Election

Post: Oct. 2, 2012

Americans head to the polls in 35 days. The decisions we make will shape our economic future—not just for the next few years, but for generations to come. Our economy is at stake. America is at stake.

President Obama and Gov. Romney square off in the first presidential debate tomorrow and manufacturers will be watching with much anticipation. While neither candidate wants America to fail or be second in the world, both have very different visions of how to maintain our mantle of economic leadership.

A recent Survey commissioned by NAM and The NFIB found that 55 percent of small business owners (including manufacturers) say they would not start a business today.  It’s no surprise then that 67 percent of business owners also say that President Obama’s policies have hurt American small businesses and manufacturers.

With so much at stake in the elections, the NAM is engaging manufacturers, their employees and families as well as the communities they serve in an unprecedented manner. A powerful new video is aimed at inspiring those who believe in manufacturing to make their voice heard on Election Day.
