American Steel Matters
Thousands of us have been laid off, and the rest worry who is next. The vitality of communities across the heartland is threatened by foreign overproduction and the resulting unfair pricing that makes it impossible for domestic producers to compete.
Over-dependence on foreign steel, which is used in military tanks and ships, puts U.S. national security and American troops at risk. Domestic production is critical to ensuring our national security.
American Way of Life
Steel built America. Everywhere we go and everything we do is dependent on its production. Let’s keep the foundation of our greatness produced in our country.
