TURNER on SotU
Congressman Mike Turner (OH-10), Sandy Keplinger and Steve Staub (co-owners of Staub Manufacturing Solutions), and Corey Adams (skilled welder at Staub Manufacturing Solutions)
Chairman Mike Turner (OH-10) of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces released the following statement after President Donald J. Trump’s first State of the Union address:
“This year, Congress and the White House worked together to provide economic relief and growth. I was very excited the President and First Lady welcomed the co-owners of Staub Manufacturing Solutions and one of their skilled welders. In August, I toured the Staub plant in Dayton, Ohio and Steve told me how much tax reform could help his manufacturing company. Since we’ve passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, he has been able to grow his small business and put more money into his employees’ pockets.
My biggest concern continues to be our national security and returning our military to a state of readiness. We are about to enter the fifth month of a continuing resolution. These fictional budgets make it impossible for our troops to be able to successfully answer the call when faced with the most complex international adversaries in history. Today, the House voted for the third time to fully fund the Department of Defense for Fiscal Year 2018, which began in October. I hope the Senate finally takes up this critical legislation and removes our troops’ safety from Washington political games.”
