American Jobs are important and our Government is starting to wake up to the fact.

"In a blow to Northrop Grumman Corp's hopes of building a new aerial refueling tanker for the Air Force under a $35 billion contract, the General Accountability Office Wednesday said Boeing Co. -- the competitor for the deal -- deserves another chance to bid on the project.

The Northrop Grumman contract would add jobs on Long Island and elsewhere in New York State, but the GAO said the Air Force made "a number of significant errors that could have affected the outcome of what was a close competition" between the two companies.",0,4502205.story

This only happened because people across the country complained about our jobs being sent overseas. The fight is not over yet but atleast there will be a chance to keep our defense and jobs in the USA.

Thank You to all the members who have taken the time to email our reps and ask for a review of the contract award. It's all of us collectively who have made a difference. Our children depend on what we do now to secure a good life in the future. It's nice to know Americans still have the guts to say NO to shipping our manufacturing away.
