Like me, are you frustrated with the problems no one's fixing? ...We're shipping our jobs overseas instead of our products.
People are hurting because American companies benefit by shipping jobs overseas. This tractor's built right here in Racine; this one comes from Japan. But when it comes to federal taxes, those taxes made overseas are not taxed. So companies build overseas. That's not fair. So I have a plan to fix it. American companies should benefit when they keep jobs here... instead of exporting jobs, we should be exporting American products.
