It’s Made in America Week, and House Republicans join President Trump in celebrating all the great work American companies do to provide high quality goods, services, and jobs.
Earlier this week, the President hosted 50 companies from all 50 states who, as the White House puts it, “make ‘Made in America’ the world standard for quality and craftsmanship.”
House Republicans and the President have been hard at work lifting the regulatory burden off American small businesses, so that they can innovate, create, and grow without the federal government holding them back. A record 14 Congressional Review Act resolutions are now law, and the House passed the Financial CHOICE Act to overhaul Dodd-Frank — just to name a few.
Here are some highlights from this week (so far!):
[Former House Republican] Department of the Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke via FoxNews.com: Made in America: Promoting the All-American outdoor experience
This week, President Trump kicked off “Made in America Week.” At the Department of the Interior, we are taking this opportunity to promote and strengthen America’s tradition of outdoor recreation on public lands. The all-American outdoor experience was the idea of visionaries like President Theodore Roosevelt, and has been carried on by the federal government and Congress for years. It could not have been possible without help from philanthropic foundations, American businesses, and thousands of public-private partnerships across our public lands.
Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA):
“My commitment to ‘Made in America’ goes beyond words printed on products; it’s a recognition that our innovators and businesses make our economy thrive. I owned a small business in NW Georgia for over 20 years, and I helped found a ‘Buy Local’ campaign to support businesses in the area. I stand with President Trump as we celebrate ‘Made in America’ this week.”
Rep. Roger Williams (R-TX) in his Come and Read It Report:
“This week is ‘Made in America Week.’ That means that we need to get back to putting American jobs first by prioritizing our U.S. manufacturing opportunities that employ so many. We need to focus on the mom and pop shops down the street who are employing the people who know the community best. We need to take care of American families and the only way to do that is by providing Americans with jobs. My colleagues and I in the House have made some significant strides in order to keep our promises to the American people. We are working hard in Washington to remain active and push President Trump’s agenda through.”
Rep. Glenn Thompson (R-PA) on the House floor:
“American entrepreneurs, workers, farmers, and innovators have built this country and drive our economy. They are the heart of this nation and they ensure that the Made in the U.S.A. label means quality and value — which is something we treasure. Pennsylvania has a rich history of being a manufacturing leader, especially our storied Pennsylvania steel….this rich history continues today. The 5th Congressional District is home to numerous producers that have…employed American workers, produced American products, and grown American crops.”
Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-MN):
“It enjoyed seeing Faribault Woolen Mill from Minnesota this morning, who was invited to the White House for the “Made in America” showcase event this week. One company from each state was chosen to highlight their American-made products, and Faribault Woolen Mill was Minnesota’s honoree with their blankets and scarves. I especially enjoyed meeting Mary, who has been working at the plant for 63 years! Congratulations Faribault Woolen Mill!”
Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-WI):
“Pierce Mfg, a subsidiary of Oshkosh Corporation, displayed one of its fire trucks at The White House this afternoon to kick off Made in America Week.”
Rep. David McKinley (R-WV):
This week we celebrate #MadeInAmericaWeek! It is crucial that we promote American businesses and help create opportunities for American workers here at home. Proud to have #WV01 represented at the White House today by Homer Laughlin Fiestaware china for the Made in America Showcase
