Trade Cases Protect U.S. Jobs


It was a blip in the headlines, but the Obama Administration’s decision to go after China on auto and auto parts violations will really help our jobs problem and our trade imbalance.

We’ve got so much more to do. But a record is a record, and this is the first president in 50 years to protect and expand manufacturing jobs, from either party. Unless we revitalize manufacturing, our economy won’t move into high gear. These trade cases are a step we need, and we need to ratchet them up.
