Sen. Rick Scott Applauds Senate Passage of His “Buy American” Resolution

December 22, 2020

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott applauded the Senate passage of his and Senator Tammy Baldwin’s bipartisan calling on Americans to buy products made in the U.S. whenever possible in order to support American jobs and manufacturing, and help build up the U.S. supply chain. 

Senator Rick Scott said, “I’m glad my colleagues joined together to pass this resolution, which encourages all Americans to buy products made in the U.S. whenever possible. This outbreak has shown that we cannot continue to rely on our adversaries, like Communist China, who lied about the coronavirus and refused to be a partner in solving the crisis, for our critical supplies. I know it’s not always easy, but buying American is an important step we can all take at home to support American jobs, American producers and American manufacturers, while helping build up the U.S. supply chain. I’m committed to supporting American businesses and jobs, and ensuring America remains strong as the undisputed leader of the global economy.”

Senator Tammy Baldwin said, “I strongly believe that when we’re using U.S. taxpayer dollars, we should be supporting American workers and American-made products. As our nation addresses supply chain shortages and works to keep our economy moving forward during this pandemic, we must boost our Made in America economy by prioritizing American manufacturers, workers and products over foreign workers and foreign-made goods.”
