It's time to renew that vision of America that puts us back on the pathway of leadership, with the lens of ideals that make us unique and still the envy of the world: free enterprise, competitiveness, individual liberty and equal opportunity. The clock is ticking. 

About 12 million Americans are employed in manufacturing. Our industry boasts the highest multiplier effect of any economic sector. For every $1 spent in manufacturing, another $1.37 is added to the economy. No other sector even comes close.

But our numbers could be even better, and the lives we can improve could be yet again unmatched, if Congress gives us a hand.

Manufacturers aren't here for a handout. When we see a problem, we fix it. We expect Congress to do the same.
