We Support The Coalition for a Prosperous America
Bring Our Jobs Home co-founder Frank Spotorno is pleased to announce that another important partner has joined the movement to demand fair trade, eliminate the trade deficit and create good paying jobs in the USA.
The Coalition for a Prosperous America (CPA) is this organization, which supports President Trump and his decision to impose tariffs on imported steel and aluminum. While the mainstream media and many American corporations predicted massive job losses as a result of tariffs, CPA has proved them wrong.
Instead, the administration’s economic policies have resulted in the largest and most sustained manufacturing job growth since 1998. The U.S. has added 296,000 new factory jobs since October 2017 and 32,000 manufacturing jobs in October 2018 alone. In November 2018, U.S. manufacturing added 27,000 workers, the same month GM announced 14,000 layoffs in North America (about 2,500 of those job cuts will be made in Canada).
The CPA is working hard to close common-sense loopholes like the obscure statute that allows imported goods valued at less than $800 to avoid tariffs. Online retailers like Amazon and Chinese-owned Alibaba want to bring boatloads of products to warehouses in Mexico, then use e-commerce to flood America’s market to undercut domestic producers.
CPA members include small, patriotic companies like Liberty Tabletop, the only American-made flatware company; Atlas Tools, whose business is increasing even with higher production costs due to import tariffs on steel; and Penn United, a domestic maker of precision components and products. Other organizations include How Americans Can Buy American, unions including the AFL-CIO and the Teamsters, and Ford Motor Company.
Michael Stumo, CEO of the Coalition for a Prosperous America, was on a White House call recently and noticed several powerful and pro-free trade groups made their case for zero tariffs on imports and advocated more cheap and subsidized goods from China. These groups include National Retail Federation, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Consumer Technology Corp. (whose chairman is from Sony Electronics of Japan) and the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers (which represents mostly foreign auto companies). These organizations could care less about our American jobs, farmers, ranchers, and companies.
Simply put, the CPA is the only organization strong enough to combat the above-listed groups and others representing the import lobby on trade. But they need your help to prevent China from taking the lead in advanced technology (including militarily) and becoming the world’s number one economic superpower. If that ever happens, our great nation will likely experience rapid decline and cease being great. We simply cannot afford to stand idly by and let that happen. Our members already see business come back from China. Wages are rising for the first time in a very long time. We cannot go backward.
Become a bigger part of the solution. Become a supporter of the Coalition for a Prosperous America. The CPA is a bi-partisan group that includes Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Conservatives and Liberals. They believe America can provide good jobs for workers, affordable goods for consumers, opportunity for farms and manufacturers and a clean environment without compromising our national sovereignty and security.
“I support the CPA and hope to become more involved with them in the future. I urge all of my followers and supporters to learn more about this organization,” said Bring Our Jobs Home co-founder Frank Spotorno.
