Duncan Hunter is a unique candidate. I have tried to pound the message that his appeal to the blue collar working man is unequaled by other candidates. His appeal is through hard work and legislation, not talking points and media. The Coalition of American Manufacturers, Producers and Workers has this on Duncan's Currency Reform for Fair Trade Act of 2007 (H.R. 2942).
WASHINGTON, June 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The China Currency Coalition, an alliance of industry, agriculture, and worker organizations whose mission is to support U.S. manufacturing and production, welcomes the introduction by Congressmen Tim Ryan (D-OH) and Duncan Hunter (R-CA) of the Currency Reform for Fair Trade Act of 2007 (H.R. 2942). This WTO-consistent legislation updates the Fair Currency Act of 2007 (H.R. 782), introduced earlier this year by the two congressmen, which the coalition also strongly supported.(LINK)
Ex United Mine Workers President Richard Trumka says
AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Richard L. Trumka, one of two co-chairs of the coalition, requested quick movement on the legislation on behalf of the federation's 10 million members. "Our members support this bill, as their jobs continue to be lost to China through unfair competition. The AFL-CIO respectfully urges the Ways & Means Committee to move this bill quickly so that it can be voted on promptly by the full House of Representatives."When was the last time you saw Labor swooning for a Republican and his legislation? Duncan gets it! He wants to build the Arsenal of Democracy and level the playing field on trade. He does not just talk about it, he acts. When I say act, I mean legislation, not TV shows. Let Duncan break it down for you step by step-Click Here. Duncan's leadership will make America great again. He will fight hard to bring those manufacturing jobs back home.
“American workers are the most productive and innovative labor force in the world. Unfortunately, they are asked to compete in an unfair environment against other workers who make only a fraction of a living wage and are employed by companies that face few, if any, responsibilities to the environment or the long-term prospects of their employees. Our domestic manufacturers are forced to compete against foreign companies that benefit from their country’s currency and regulatory regimes. Ominously, China is cheating on trade and using billions of American trade dollars to build ships, planes and missiles at an alarming rate while, at the same time, taking millions of American jobs. I will reverse this “one-way street” with a new policy of fair trade for the American worker."- Duncan Hunter
Help get this man elected, his leadership is needed. No fancy talk, no TV shows, just a 26 year record of solid leadership.
