Building a skilled workforce to strengthen East Tennessee's middle class

If we are going to Keep America Great, we must Keep America Making.  Much has been said in the past about energy independence.  Thanks to many of President Trump’s policies, we have met that goal.  I believe that it is equally important that we have Manufacturing Independence.  We rely too heavily on China for manufacturing needs.  Not only is this an economic issue; it is a national security issue.  I support Capitalism, not Corporatism.  Every American should know that they can move up in the free market.  I will not penalize someone for success, but a failing business should not be propped up by the taxpayers.
