Senator Sherrod Brown released a statement today calling on Congressman Paul Ryan To Use Tonight's Convention Speech To Call On The House Of Representatives To Vote On His Bipartisan China Currency Bill:
"As Congressman Paul Ryan takes the stage tonight for the first time as the Republican Party's nominee for vice president, I urge him to use this opportunity to call for an immediate vote in the House of Representatives on my bipartisan jobs bill that cracks down on China for unfairly manipulating its currency. Chinese currency manipulation is hurting Ohio's middle class and costing us thousands upon thousands of jobs -- that's why I'm proud that my bill has already passed the senate with the support of Republicans like my colleague Sen. Rob Portman.
"Protecting Ohio from cheating China should unite Democrats and Republicans, and I sincerely hope that Congressman Ryan uses tonight's speech as a chance to cut through partisan politics and call for a vote on my China currency bill that will help us continue moving our economy in the right direction and create jobs not only in Ohio, but throughout the country."
