Reid Spokesman: Republicans Protecting CEOs Who Offshore American Jobs, Pushing the Same Policies That Cost Millions Of Americans Their Jobs

Washington, DC – Jim Manley, spokesman for Nevada Senator Harry Reid, released the following statement today after Republicans blocked legislation to discourage companies from sending American jobs overseas:
“Someone should start keeping a count of how many different ways Republicans will try to justify protecting CEOs who send American jobs overseas. The facts speak for themselves. Republicans have a long and distinguished track record of protecting multimillionaire CEOs who offshore American jobs at the expense of the middle class, and clearly they want to keep on with more of the same policies that cost 8 million Americans their jobs. But don’t take it from me, Representative Boehner said it best yesterday when he admitted, ‘we are not going to be any different than what we’ve been.’”
