Today, Alison Lundergan Grimes released the following statement pressing Mitch McConnell to support the bipartisan Bring Jobs Home Act through final passage:
"I have emphasized during my campaign the urgent need to halt the flow of good jobs overseas and to start bringing them back to American shores. It is critical to the fight to create good-paying jobs and strengthen the middle class.
"The "Bring Jobs Home Act' is a commendable proposal that deserves broad bipartisan support. It would end taxpayer-funded subsidies for job exporters while providing tax credits for companies that move jobs and business activities from another country to the United States. I strongly support the measure and would vote for it in the Senate.
"Mitch McConnell said it is not a serious bill. That is because he does not take job creation seriously. He is wrong. This is a bill that would produce good-paying jobs for Kentuckians and other Americans. I urge Senator McConnell to support through final passage this much-needed legislation that supports Kentucky jobs and will help grow the middle class."
