Dear Mr. President,

Over the past three years, this country has lost one out of every seven manufacturing jobs – 2.7 million jobs. To date, your Administration’s only plan to save manufacturing is to create a new government position -- the “Assistant Secretary for Manufacturing and Services” within the Department of Commerce. This simply just isn’t acceptable and amounts, in my view, to a dereliction of duty on the economic front.

As you give your speech on the economy today in Michigan, I hope you will finally offer a long overdue plan to restore the nation’s manufacturing base, which has been eroded under your watch. Your Administration has stood by and watched as the loss of manufacturing jobs – including 110,000 in Michigan -- has undermined the strength of our economy and the bread and butter for millions of America’s working families.
