By Richard A. McCormack

The planets are beginning to align for a new manufacturing policy agenda in Washington, but doubts remain as to whether appropriate action can or will be taken to improve the fortunes of domestic manufacturers and the overall economy.

    I was not able to attend, it appears to me that the only speakers that you memtion are the 2 REPUBLICANS THE PARTY THAT IS RESOPNSBLE FOR THE MAJOR PROBLEM WE IN MANUFACTURING HAVE. There is but one answer to our problem if the jobs do not come back, all of the corporations may end up like the the states and local governments with no money. If people do not have jobs then the corporations do not have customers.And I dont mean flipping bugers or working in retain. So lets get behind President Obama and get back to work, we that have worked in manufacturing all or most are life are fed up with the B/S.
