Sen. Rick Scott: Buying American Supports U.S. Jobs, Shuts Out Communist China

July 29, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, in recognition and support of the annual Made In America Week, Senator Rick Scott released the following statement calling on all American families and businesses to support our local and national economies by buying U.S.-made products. Last year, the U.S. Senate passed Senator Rick Scott’s bipartisan “Buy American” resolution calling on Americans to support U.S. businesses and jobs by buying products made in America, from any American manufacturer.

Senator Rick Scott said, “As we celebrate this year’s Made In America Week, I encourage all Americans to support their local communities, our great small businesses and American jobs by buying products made here in the USA. While I’m glad to see President Biden continue this tradition, if he really cared about American families and jobs, he’d abandon his job-killing agenda and out-of-control tax and spend spree that’s bankrupting our nation and leading to inflation. President Biden and all Americans must also remember that every time we buy a product ‘Made in China,’ we are putting another dollar into the pockets of Communist China, bankrolling its oppressive government, which is actively committing genocide against the Uyghurs and attacking democracy in Hong Kong and Taiwan. The best way to grow and support American jobs is to cut taxes and regulations, pay down the debt and stop doing business with Communist China.”
