Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Bruce Braley (IA-01) released the following statement on President Obama’s visit to the Alcoa plant in his district in Bettendorf, IA:

"I’ve long called for a national manufacturing strategy so I’m very pleased that the President is turning his focus to the manufacturing crisis in this country. 

"During the past decade, we’ve lost five million manufacturing jobs and 54,000 factories. All Americans should be troubled by this. Our economy, our national security and our nation’s future depend on a strong manufacturing sector that provides good-paying jobs to middle class Americans. 

"The President’s leadership is crucial to help us restore the image of America as a country that builds things."
