VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN TO TRAVEL TO COLUMBUS, OHIO ON “MADE IN OHIO MANUFACTURING TOUR”
CHICAGO, IL – On Thursday, July 19, Vice President Joe Biden will travel to Columbus, Ohio as part of the “Made in Ohio Manufacturing Tour.” The Vice President will highlight the impact of President Obama’s efforts to strengthen Ohio’s manufacturing industry and bolster middle-class security for Ohio’s workers. Manufacturers are creating jobs for the first time since the late 1990s, with Ohio adding 44,700 manufacturing jobs since the economic recovery began, and the auto industry – which supports one in eight jobs in Ohio – going from teetering on the brink of collapse in 2009 to making a comeback. The Vice President will also discuss the choice in this election between two fundamentally different visions of how to grow the economy, create middle-class jobs and pay down the debt.. The President and the Vice President believe the only way to build an economy meant to last is to build it from the middle out, not the top down. He will discuss the President’s plan to restore middle class security by paying down our debt in a balanced way that ensures everyone pays their fair share and still invests in the things we need to create jobs and grow our economy over the long term, like education, energy, innovation, and infrastructure.
