In his effort to roll back and gut the outrageous free trade policies of the past decade, Congressman Zack Space (OH-18) arrived in Washington to close down a tax loophole that previous Administrations had given to big corporations -- a loophole that, devastatingly, facilitated the outsourcing of American jobs to other countries and continents.
"This is wrong, wrong, wrong -- and disgraceful. But too many free traders in Congress who don't appreciate the devastation that these trade policies have had on Ohioans have allowed this practice to go on for years," Space said. "The people of Ohio's 18th Congressional District are sick and tired of these policies."
"Today, we're bringing that money back home where we can use it for our students, for their futures, and for the future of our towns and communities."
The bill that Space supports will avert a crisis of overcrowded classrooms on the eve of the beginning of school. The bill will retain or create 5000 teachers jobs in Ohio -- including more than 300 in Southeastern Ohio.
