Made in America

Resolution Number 11-04.57

Whereas, we are continuously losing employment opportunities and suffering great financial losses, decreasing employment income and therefore future spending capacity, and we are increasing our individual debt, commercial enterprise debt, and our government debt to other countries at a staggering rate;

Whereas, companies and individuals have given up on even being able to find American made products, such as clothes, accessories, shoes, appliances, furniture, electronics, toys, and medicine, and we therefore purchase foreign goods, causing further loss of funds to our own economy; companies believe erroneously that the short term bottom line improvements they might receive by moving production and service jobs overseas is a feasible option toward their continued viability and our nation's prosperity as a whole; and product safety is improved by manufacturing in America;

Whereas, doing more manufacturing in America and people buying more America made goods will help bring back jobs and income to this country, will provide our consumers the opportunity to return their spending to strengthen our own economy, will decrease the need of new international loans and stem the staggering debt to our national economy, allowing us more funds to create employment opportunities, rebuild our economy and infrastructure and continue to protect our environment, and return America to a position of strength so that we may prosper and continue to be a world leader;

Therefore, Be It Resolved that the California Democratic Party believes that state and federal governments should sponsor advertisement campaigns to promote that purchasing American made goods are both patriotic and good for business and that it is better for us as consumers to purchase one Made-in-America item and wear it or use it with pride than to purchase and use many foreign produced articles; and

Be It Further Resolved, the California Democratic Party believes that state and federal governments should provide incentives and government assistance to companies that create and bring back manufacturing jobs to this country.
