Obama Promises Jobs, But Fails Struggling Alabama Manufacturer

Written by 

According to the official White House website:

President Obama’s first priority in confronting the economic crisis is to put Americans back to work. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan signed by the President will spur job creation while making long-term investments in health care, education, energy, and infrastructure.... The recovery plan will save or create about 3.5 million jobs while investing in priorities that create sustainable economic growth for the future.

While Americans are aware of White House rhetoric, one small Alabama manufacturer has yet to feel the love. Fox News reported Dec. 19 that the U.S.’s largest sleeping bag manufacturer faces closure unless relief is found from a free trade loophole.
