1. SOUNDBITE (English) Mike Pence, U.S. Vice President
"American manufacturing is roaring back, but to maintain that momentum, Congress needs to ratify the USMCA. And the president and I are absolutely committed, not just to take this case to Capitol Hill, but really to take this case to the American people."
2. SOUNDBITE (English) Mike Pence, U.S. Vice President
"This is about jobs. This is about growth. This is about making sure that there's more investment in America more growth in manufacturing in particular more growth in the American automotive industry. That means a USMCA has got to become law."
3. SOUNDBITE (English) Mike Pence, U.S. Vice President
"Our hope is that Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill are going to recognize just how important the USMCA is to working Americans, to investment in this country, and we're absolutely determined to take this case all across the country."
6. SOUNDBITE (English) Mike Pence, U.S. Vice President
"We all remember the promises that came with NAFTA and then, whether it be here in Michigan, whether it be in my home state of Indiana, over the last 25 years we've seen jobs head south of the border to Mexico. Those days are over. The new agreement in the USMCA levels the playing field, where Mexico has agreed to update their labor laws. Now, there's there's rules of origin for where products and component parts are created that now is going to create the kind of environment where American workers are going to be able to compete and businesses are no longer going to have some incentive in our treaty arrangements with Canada and Mexico to move jobs out of this country."
