Team Guinta continued its Middle-Class Economic Recovery Tour yesterday afternoon in Hampton at Foss Manufacturing. At Foss, we witnessed the innovative and pioneering work they do at home and abroad, specializing in nonwoven fabrics and specialty synthetic fibers.
Foss Manufacturing's ability to operate successfully is not only impressive, but also unusual in this economic climate. The United States Commerce Department reported that the economy decreased at an annual rate 1 percent (-1%) in the first quarter, a downward revision from the previously reported .1% growth rate.
Frank Guinta released the following statement:
“Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter has dutifully supported President Obama’s policies for nearly six years, leaving us with a sluggish and under performing economy. As we continue our Economic Tour, we consistently hear that the Congresswoman’s efforts to spend our way into prosperity are not working. America’s middle class is being weighed down by Washington’s oppressive policies. We need to refocus our economic agenda, cut red tape, reduce taxes, and replace ObamaCare with real health care reforms that put the patient in charge rather than D.C. bureaucrats.”
