It's been the law since the Great Depression that the government must spend half of its budget for goods on products manufactured at home in the United States.
But huge, multinational companies have been getting more than their fair share of tax dollars through loopholes in the law, costing taxpayers thousands of jobs and millions of dollars.
That's why Connecticut Rep. Chris Murphy (D) introduced the 21st Century Buy American Act. If passed, this law will increase transparency, close loopholes and help American manufacturers stay in business.
Lobbyists are already lined up in opposition. Rep. Murphy needs you to take a stand to support American businesses and American workers. Become a citizen co-sponsor of 21st Century Buy American Act and help drown out big business and lobbyists who profit from taking American jobs overseas.
Add your voice, and help create and save American jobs today.
