Local Representative introduces “Buy American” resolution


REGION, August 27th- The Pennsylvania House of Representatives have adopted a resolution urging Pennsylvanians to purchase United States saving bonds and to buy products made in the United States and in the Commonwealth.

Democratic State Representative Eddie Day Pashinski, 121st Legislative District, a union member, introduced the resolution to draw attention to how Pennsylvanians can improve the value of the dollar and the economy by investing in the state and the country. Mr. Pashinski feels an injection of capital by residents into the national and state economies could help restore our previous level of financial health.

“Whenever social crises have threatened this country and state, it has been the groundswell of public support that allowed us too overcome them. People rallying to each other’s aid does more for the morale of their communities than government actions can. That’s why I’m urging to take a more active part in the financial distress our nation is in today by buying American and buying Pennsylvanian,” said Mr. Pashinski, who was elected to represent the 121st Legislative District in Harrisburg in 2006.

Mr. Pashinski added global expansion over the last decade has resulted in the loss of jobs for millions of Pennsylvanias and Americans. And consumers buying American made products can help the country and fellow Americans.
