During my career I've rejected the notion that we have to pick between a better environment or creating jobs. I know we can have both, because that's what I've spent my career doing. And I can tell you that the barriers to doing this are neither technological nor economic -- they are policy barriers. What we need to do to grow the economy and create jobs is the exact opposite of what Trump and Congressman Roskam propose.

Infrastructure is one of the best investments we can make, because those jobs can't be outsourced. And, it gives our businesses and citizens the tools to grow and create even more jobs. We need an infrastructure package that invests both federal dollars and private capital to build critical and necessary bridges, roads, power plants and industrial facilities that will provide decades of future value. These are the things that are going to help the economy, and the middle class.

Furthermore, clean energy is another area where we could be growing jobs, by investing in research and technology so that the next generation of wind turbines, solar panels, fuel cells and more are designed and manufactured right here, by American workers.
