get the USAF next gen Tanker built HERE in the USA by Boeing & NOT overseas by Airbus. These planes will be built using OUR tax dollars and we must demand that they be built in America by American workers!!
Although many of us have different political opinions, this is something that I think we can all agree on.
To sign the petition & contact your member of Congress - go here.
Airbus is new to the tanker business. The Airbus tanker is based on the A330 commercial airplane which, according to the U.S. Government, was designed and built using $5 billion in illegal subsidies provided by multiple European governments. Illegal subsidies to Airbus have** resulted in the loss of tens of thousands of U.S. aerospace jobs.**
A Boeing designed and built tanker will support approximately 50,000 jobs at large and small companies throughout the U.S. Given our nation’s economic challenges, the U.S. Government must leverage every taxpayer dollar to create and support jobs here in America. The right investment for our national and economic security is the American-made Boeing tanker.
You are whining about the loss of “American jobs”.
Now I happen to believe a decent case could be made for imposing tariffs on goods produced in China because they are not under the environmental and wage restrictions that we are in this country. But that is another conversation.
Do you have any idea how many jobs we have exported to China?
