Tom Periello (D-6th CD) gets it. American Manufacturing is the bedrock of our economy. Adding real value to real products.
“Today, we scored a victory for American workers by closing tax loopholes for companies that ship our jobs overseas. For too long, both parties have asked taxpayers to subsidize the very outsourcing that has devastated Southern Virginia and so many working families across America,” said Rep. Perriello. “This bold step puts the American worker first and invests in the next generation of advanced manufacturing.” 5/28/10

Bob Goodlatte (R-6th CD) ... not so much. Where's Bob when we need him? Manufacturing is not even listed on his Current Issues web page. Too bad for young folks looking for work in manufacturing in the Shenandoah Valley, apparently he has other priorities.
