Manufacturers Bend Romney's Ear

aem2August 4, 2011 – The Association of Equipment Manufacturers and leaders of four equipment-manufacturing companies joined GOP presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney at a manufacturing plant in Pataskala, Ohio, to discuss the need for new manufacturing policies that would rebuild deteriorating roads, bridges and highways and help American manufacturers and farmers export their products to new and expanded markets around the world. I'm not sure if he's friends with Rep. John Mica, or others in the House of Representatives responsible for their underfunded infrastructure proposal, but if he is, maybe he could deliver a message: We need an adequately funded highway bill sooner rather than later. It's a matter of safety and national security.
