In another insult to American workers, Mike Fitzpatrick's campaign hands out American flags made in China.In response, to support Patrick Murphy, click here.
(Bristol, PA) - As a Congressman, Mike Fitzpatrick betrayed working families in Bucks County by supporting policies that continue to outsource jobs to foreign countries. Yesterday, Fitzpatrick's campaign stooped to a new low and showed just how out of touch Mike really is.
At a debate this past Thursday at the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce, Fitzpatrick added insult to injury by allowing his campaign to hand out American flags made in China. While Americans are struggling to find work, Former Congressman Fitzpatrick apparently had no problem using his campaign dollars to buy American flags outside of the United States.
"I bet there are thousands of unemployed workers here in Bucks County who would have taken great pride in making those flags," said Neil Samuels, Executive Director of the Bucks County Democratic Committee. "Mike Fitzpatrick doesn’t see a problem if Old Glory is produced in China, but working families and American Veterans just might."
We know that Mike Fitzpatrick does not understand that outsourcing jobs hurts American workers. His tie-breaking vote for CAFTA was bad enough. Then he tried to deny that anyone was hurt by the policy that sent American jobs overseas. Now, he continues to support tax-breaks for companies that outsource jobs, so they can pad their bottom-line at the expense of our working families.
All the best,
Bucks County Democratic Committee
