After listening to the WNPR Senate debate on Thursday, between Congressman Murphy and Susan Bysiewicz, Chris Murphy has my vote for U.S. Senate.
His success at adding his Buy American amendment to the Defense spending bill shows that he clearly knows what it takes to bring common sense job creating solutions to the Senate. This amendment will change the way that the US Defense Department considers contractors that bid for their projects, by forcing them to weigh its impact on American jobs. Thanks to Chris, they will now take the amount of US workers employed in the US into account. This plan seems like it is common sense. Of course taxpayer money should not be spent overseas when it could be used to produce high quality products and American jobs. Chris realizes this.
I support Chris because his experience and accomplishments tell me exactly what I can expect from Senator Murphy, and that is that he will do Connecticut proud by being a loud and articulate voice for expanding the US work force.
